Trina Solar has been recognized as the “Top Performer” among global PV module manufacturers by PV Evolution Labs (PVEL) and DNV GL.
Trina Solar, the world leading global PV and smart energy total solution provider, was recently been recognized as the “Top Performer” among global PV module manufacturers by PV Evolution Labs (PVEL) and DNV GL.
The company is one of only two (JinkoSolar) PV module manufacturers with worldwide reach to garner the prestigious recognition for the fifth consecutive time since the Top Performer award was founded.
The recognition of “Top Performer” is based on PV Module Reliability Scorecard released by PVEL and DNV GL. The Scorecard is one of the most comprehensive comparisons of PV module reliability test results publicly available on the market today. As an integrated certification program with a focus on module reliability and power generation performance, the test comprises 2-4x IEC thermal cycling, damp heat, dynamic mechanical load, humidity-freeze and PID attenuation tests.
As part of PVEL’s PQP (Product Quality Program) report, the results presented in the 2019 Scorecard were independently tested in the past 18 months. The top performers selected were modules that exhibited less than 2% degradation for the entirety of the test sequence. Being recognized as a top performer demonstrates a manufacturer’s commitment to product quality.
Trina Solar Quality Director Zhao Mengyu said, “It is encouraging to see that Trina Solar has been recognized as a Top Performer for the fifth time in a row. Rigorous raw materials control and production line management processes ensure the high reliability of our modules. Trina Solar is committed to providing customers with higher-reliability and higher-value PV modules.”
Kangping Chen, CEO of JinkoSolar, said, “I am extremely proud that JinkoSolar has once again been recognized with this award. It is a great compliment to the groundbreaking work we do and allows us to stand out as the preferred brand for customers, investors, and banks. Our R&D team is committed to revolutionising the industry using technological innovation and continues to set new industry benchmarks in these rigorous test regimes for quality checks. We believe that only reliable and highly efficient products will meet the global demand from our customers and generate value for our shareholders.”
