Trina Solar announced four new series of modules with a maximum output of 415 W.
The four new series of modules include TALLMAX (high efficiency), DUOMAX (dual-glass), DUOMAX Twin (bifacial), and Honey black M. The high-efficiency series can be used in multiple application scenarios like utility-scale ground-mount and distributed PV projects. An increase in the output of modules from 370 W to 415 W will help reduce BOS costs by 4.5% to 8.5% and reduce levelized cost of electricity (LCOE) by 2.5% to 4.6%.
The dual-glass series features high reliability in extreme conditions, five-year extended warranty for linear power and more power generation with lower power degradation. The double-side/bifacial series provides extra 5% to 30% power generation by its back side, features high power generation in snowfields and locations where sand is plentiful, among other high-reflection environments. The black/aesthetics series is designed specially for the high-end residential market with its aesthetically-designed black-out look.
Trina Solar executive vice president Yin Rongfang said, “The new series of modules push beyond the boundary of high-output modules in mass production as the industry imagines it, and fit for diversified application scenarios. It remained true to the brand’s legacy of creating high-output, highly reliable and high power generation of solar modules, providing our customers with a higher value products. Meanwhile, the launch of new series were also backed up by Trina Solar’s strong supply capacity to meet the growing needs.”
The new modules deliver a unique integration of multi-busbar, double-glass, dual-side and half-cut technologies. The majority of firms that seek to enhance their presence in the multi-busbar segment are frequently stymied by the lack of skill sets and equipment as well as patents for their technologies. Trina Solar has to date been granted 24 patents for multi-busbar-related technologies. The company also has 28 patents within the application of double-glass technologies.
The rollout of the four new series of high-output modules will help Trina Solar consolidate its leadership and embrace a new era of mass-produced high-output modules.
