Trina Solar Vertex module reaches 515.8W power output

trina solar 5 MayTrina Solar Co, Ltd has announced that its Vertex module is able to reach 515.8W power output, based on the test result by TÜV Rheinland’s independent evaluation

This follows Trina Solar’s commencement of formal mass production of the Vertex pilot line on 18 March and the shipment of the first Vertex order on 27 March.

The Vertex is one of the first ultra-high power modules to be certified by international testing institutions. It has passed the TÜV Rheinland photovoltaic module IEC test and been granted both the IEC 61215 PV module performance standard and the IEC 61730 PV module safety standard certificates.

Chris Zou, vice-president of Solar Services, TÜV Rheinland Greater China, said, “Trina Solar's Vertex module has passed the comprehensive and rigorous test by TÜV Rheinland with industry-leading output reaching 515.8W. This fully demonstrates Trina Solar's prowess in R&D and industrial chain support accumulated over the years. We congratulate Trina Solar on its outstanding achievements in leading the growth of the industry and appreciate its innovative spirit.”

“The Vertex has built a brand new technological platform by integrating and innovating a variety of technologies such as 210mm large size silicon wafers, multi-busbars, 1/3 cut technology, non-destructive cutting, and high-density packaging, providing us with a glimpse into the future developmental direction while keeping us excited about the possibilities,” Yin Rongfang, vice-general manager and executive vice-president at Trina Solar said.

“With the development and improvement of the industry chain, especially the improvement in glass supply capacity, adding another column of cells to the existing five-column layout design can increase the Vertex module’s power output to more than 600W. Furthermore, with PERC+ cell conversion efficiency anticipated to surpass 24 per cent, combined with other factors such as the optimisation in module design, improvements in load capacity as well as downstream installation, the Vertex modules' power output will continue to increase. This provides the direction and path for the iterative development of PV modules, which will further drive the continuous decrease in the BOS and LCOE of PV systems,” Yin added.
