Trina’s Vertex Modules Powering 60MW Floating Solar System in Singapore

Chinese solar panel manufacturer Trina Solar has today announced that it’s 12,556 Trina Solar 210 Vertex dual-glass modules are powering a 60 MW floating solar PV system on Singapore’s Tengeh Reservoir. The project has recently been connected to the grid and is fully commercially operational now.

The project, the largest floating solar PV system in Singapore, saw construction starting in June 2020.

This project is expected to remain in commercial operation for more than 25 years, and it marks a significant milestone in Singapore’s renewable energy development. The floating solar PV system will generate 77,259,302/Kwh each year . This makes Singapore one of the few countries in the world to achieve 100% green waterworks.

Trina Solar’s 210 Vertex dual-glass modules were selected for their high-power generation and reliability in hot and humid climates, such as Singapore.

Trina Solar’s 210 Vertex modules are manufactured based on 210 mm diameter big-size silicon wafers and offer advantages such as high power capacity, high efficiency, high reliability, and high power generation.
This helped reduce the number of panels needed for the 60MW project, reducing the water surface area taken up by the project.

 The floating PV system has very strict requirements on components’ functionality, safety, and reliability in the water environment.

“The application of Trina Solar’s 210 Vertex modules in Singapore’s floating project has been a successful showcase,” commented Zhao Lei, project leader from Trina Solar China region. “After the Singapore project, more and more country markets show confidence and recognition of the quality of Trina Solar’s 210 Vertex modules. Our brand has earned its wider reputation overseas.”
