Trina Solar provides 167MW of PV modules to Europe's largest PV project
CHANGZHOU, China, Aug. 10, 2018 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

On August 9, Trina Solar Limited ("Trina Solar" or the "Company") announced 
that the photovoltaic (PV) manufacturer will provide 167MW of PV modules to the 
largest solar PV project in Europe. 

ACS Group and its subsidiary Cobra, specialized in turnkey energetic 
infrastructures, are building up the power station in Mula, Murcia province 
(Spain) which will cover 1,000 hectares with a total power capacity of 500MW. 
Deliveries are scheduled for Q3/Q4-2018 and Q1-2019. The project is expected to 
be operational by the end of 2019.

Trina Solar will supply 496,000 units of its TSM-PE14H multicrystalline modules 
with power outputs between 335 and 340W. The half-cell design yields higher 
efficiency and its new cell string layout reduces energy losses caused by 
inter-row shading. In addition, the 1,500V certified modules are ideal for 
large-scale installations since BOS costs are reduced by connecting more 
modules in a string. 

"We are very excited to see this impressive PV project grow with Trina Solar 
modules as it will be the biggest in Europe", said Gonzalo de la Vina, Head of 
Trina Solar Module Business Europe. "We are confident that our business 
relationship with Cobra has a bright future. Despite the paralysis of recent 
years in the Spanish PV market, this endeavor proves that the sun shines again 
in the country for solar PV as the technology is already competitive without 
subsidies".

De la Vina added, "In addition to the continuous growth in Europe, among other 
traditional markets, our products have been gaining momentum and increasing 
popularity in the Middle East, Latin America and APAC since the beginning of 
the year. With the continuing success in emerging markets, our order book has 
far exceeded expectations."

As a leading global module manufacturer, Trina Solar has built a strong sales 
and operations team worldwide with products sold to over 100 countries and 
regions across the world. By the end of 2017, the company's accumulated 
shipments totaled 32GW, ranking the firm the first among module manufacturers 
worldwide.

In 2017, Trina Solar's global shipments amounted to more than 9GW, over 60 
percent of which were delivered to locations outside of the PV manufacturer's 
home market. As the third quarter of 2018 arrives, Trina Solar's modules 
continue to sell well across the world while the company's production 
facilities located in and outside China are running at full capacity. Trina 
Solar is expanding its supply capabilities with the aim of addressing the 
increasing demand for its products.
