Trina Solar has launched two next-generation Vertex series modules with a power output of up to 600W.

Trina Solar 600W Modules

Trina Solar has launched two next-generation Vertex series modules with a power output of up to 600W. The company has also announced that it expects to realize the mass production of its 550W series in the final quarter of this year.

Dr. Zhang Yingbin, Head of Product Strategy and Value Management at Trina Solar, said “the next- generation Vertex modules enhanced by a host of forward-looking innovations, including a 210mm silicon wafer, high-density packaging and multi-busbar technologies; delivers photoelectric conversion efficiency of more than 21 percent.

“By virtue of low-voltage and high-module string power output, the new Vertex series unlocks huge potential for further reducing balance-of-system costs. By collaborating with key players across the industry chain, we believe the Vertex modules developed on the basis of a new technology platform will help reduce the levelised cost of energy across various applications and maximise customer value.”

According to the firm, the next-generation Vertex series modules hold three key advantages, including:

– the combination of non-destructive cutting, high-density packaging and multi-busbar technologies;

– low voltage and improvement in power output of a single module string by more than 35 percent;

– and significant value in greatly reducing balance-of-system costs.

Cao Bo, vice general manager and executive vice president of Trina Solar, said “to create a high- quality module product that excels in the market with comprehensive functionalities, we needed to take into account each process across the industry chain, the ultimate goal being to maximise value for customers by improving the power output of the modules and increasing power generation.

“We are honoured that the next-generation Vertex series, built on the basis of a new and forward-looking technology platform, has been recognized by key partners across the photovoltaic industry chain. As one of the members of the 600W+ Photovoltaic Open Innovation Ecological Alliance, Trina Solar is devoted to working with others in the industry to promote the sustainable development of the sector.”

Several representatives of upper, middle and lower streams of the industrial value chain of the 600W+ Photovoltaic Open Innovation Ecological Alliance – representing manufacturers of silicon, wafers, cells, modules, trackers, inverters, materials and equipment – took part in a launch event and witnessed the new next-generation Vertex series modules.

Earlier we had reported that a total of 39 companies and Photovoltaic (PV) module manufacturers had come together to form the 600 W+ Photovoltaic Open Innovation Ecological Alliance. The alliance had been formed with a new aim to create a new collaborative and innovative ecosystem through open collaboration, synergising the main resources of the industry chain and integrating core processes such as R&D, manufacturing and applications.
