Trina Solar To Deliver 550W Vertex Modules To North America

Vietnam based solar and smart energy solutions provider, Trina Solar today announced the completion of the first batch of its 210mm diameter cells and 550W high-power Vertex modules in the company’s overseas factory in Thai Nguyen, Vietnam.

The Thai Nguyen facility has successfully manufactured the first batch of Vertex 550W high-power modules that incorporate 210mm diameter solar cells, on May 15, 2021. The first-ever production in this facility started in December 2020. This new state-of-the-art factory has a capacity for 3GW of cells and 4.5GW of Vertex modules.

This shipment remarks Trina Solar’s commencement of the full-capacity delivery of its high-power Vertex 550W modules globally, making Trina Solar the first solar company to deliver modules to North America that incorporate 210mm diameter solar cells. Plans for Vertex 400W and Vertex 670W module production are now on the agenda for the Vietnam-based plant, which can boost the annual capacity to an equivalent of 3.5 GW of 210mm cells and 5GW of Vertex modules, respectively as per the company’s claims.

For the solar PV industry, Trina Solar’s Vietnam plant represents the first overseas factory that manufactures advanced 210mm diameter cells and Vertex 550W modules. This fully automated facility strengthens Trina Solar’s efficient global delivery of Vertex modules, and can better satisfy surging demand for high-quality, high-efficiency 210mm diameter cell products all across North America. With energy analysts forecasting strong growth for utility-scale solar projects across the U.S. in the coming decade, Trina Solar’s high-powered 550W Vertex modules, incorporating 210mm diameter solar cells, can help project developers and financiers achieve great projects value.

Currently, Trina Solar runs multiple 210mm cell and Vertex module factories in China and Vietnam, which are expected to produce more than 50GW of modules in total by the end of 2021.

Recently, last month Trina Solar announced the official worldwide launch of the TrinaTracker Agile 1P Dual Row. Agile 1P tracker is fully compatible with ultra-high power modules ranging from 400W to 670W+. The Agile series is a new member of the TrinaTracker family after the Vanguard series launched in December, which further enriches the tracker’s application scenarios and upgrades TrinaTracker solutions.
