Trina Solar unveils Vertex 600W series module and expects mass production of 550W series later in year
CHANGZHOU, China, July 20, 2020 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

Trina Solar Co., Ltd ('Trina Solar" or the "Company") has announced the launch 
of two next-generation Vertex series modules with power output of up to 600W. 
The company expects to realize the mass production of a 550W series in the 
final quarter of this year. 

Several representatives of upper, middle and lower streams of the industrial 
value chain of the 600W+ Photovoltaic Open Innovation Ecological Alliance, 
representing manufacturers of silicon, wafers, cells, modules, trackers, 
inverters, materials and equipment, took part in a launch event and witnessed 
the new next-generation Vertex series modules. 

Dr Zhang Yingbin, Head of Product Strategy and Value Management at Trina Solar, 
said at the event: "The next-generation Vertex modules enhanced by a host of 
forward-looking innovations, including a 210mm silicon wafer, high-density 
packaging and multi-busbar technologies, deliver photoelectric conversion 
efficiency of more than 21 percent. By virtue of low-voltage and high-module 
string power output, the new Vertex series unlocks huge potential for further 
reducing balance-of-system costs. By collaborating with key players across the 
industry chain, we believe the Vertex modules developed on the basis of a new 
technology platform will help reduce the levelized cost of energy across 
various applications and maximize customer value." 

The next-generation Vertex series modules hold three key advantages, including: 
the combination of non-destructive cutting, high-density packaging and 
multi-busbar technologies; low voltage and improvement in power output of a 
single module string by more than 35 percent; and significant value in greatly 
reducing balance-of-system costs.

Cao Bo, vice general manager and executive vice president of Trina Solar, said: 
"To create a high-quality module product that excels in the market with 
comprehensive functionalities, we needed to take into account each process 
across the industry chain, the ultimate goal being to maximize value for 
customers by improving the power output of the modules and increasing power 
generation. We are honored that the next-generation Vertex series, built on the 
basis of a new and forward-looking technology platform, has been recognized by 
key partners across the photovoltaic industry chain. As one of the members of 
the 600W+ Photovoltaic Open Innovation Ecological Alliance, Trina Solar is 
devoted to working with others in the industry to promote the sustainable 
development of the sector."
