Trina Solar Co., a PV and smart energy total solution provider announced a sizable sale of solar panels to a major European developer of sustainable energy solutions. The 588,000 Vertex DEG21C.20 bifacial solar modules are destined for a 379 MW plant located close to Alcántara in Extremadura, Spain.
The Trina Solar Vertex DEG21C.20 bifacial solar modules selected for the project feature several innovative designs. The modules’ high efficiency and low levelized cost of electricity (LCOE) help ensure that investments made today in Europe’s sustainable energy future will pay for themselves, reads the press release that the company has issued today.
The Vertex series panels can achieve a high power output of up to 670W+ while maintaining an excellent temperature coefficient and low irradiation performance. In addition, the high-efficiency monocrystalline cells and high-density encapsulation technology raise the module efficiency up to 21.6%.
Trina Solar’s design uses low-voltage and a higher module string power output to connect up to 28 modules in a string and achieve an up to 34% power increase over other reference modules.
The Vertex high-power bifacial modules place the PV plant in Alcántara as a regional leader in solar innovation. Yield potential increases due to the 210mm silicon wafer technology at lower BOS costs, while ensuring that the system is fully compatible with market technology. In addition, the high-quality dual-glass design ensures that the modules will last for generations.
Trina Solar’s Head of Europe, Gonzalo de la Viña, says the company’s focus is providing the highest efficiency possible through innovation to do its part to help Europe attain its sustainable energy goals: “Our high-power Vertex modules deliver smart energy solutions to promote the development of green energy. Our customers know the product they receive from us increases their ability to spread acceptance of renewable energy throughout Europe.“ De la Viña added, “Not just because it’s the right thing to do from an environmental standpoint, but it also makes good economic sense.“
The delivery represents Trina Solar’s continued commitment to developing solar resources throughout Europe, helping to create innovative solutions for renewable energy infrastructure.
