Trina Solar’s new Vertex modules will be shipped to India in the fourth quarter of 2020 as the company has secured its first 100 MW plus order in India for this product from energy and storage solutions provider, SunSource Energy.
The Noida-based firm had placed an order for 105 MW of Vertex bifacial modules, which it would be using for projects across multiple states in India.
The fact that such a large order for Vertex modules has come from India says a lot about the demand for renewable energy in this market.
Going forward, the company foresee continuous strong demand for high power solar modules for the simple reason that the Indian market is highly competitive, and conscious of the product performance, balance of system (BOS) and levelised cost of energy.
The Vertex modules are higher power modules as such the desired total power output for the project can be achieved with lesser number of modules. This in turn reduces BOS cost. Fewer modules equates to fewer mounting systems, less cabling, fewer junction boxes, fewer man hours required for installation and less land required for the project.
According to Trina Solar, the new Vertex series of modules have a conversion efficiency rate of up to 21 per cent and can deliver more than 500 Watt of power from the front surface.
These modules are based on monocrystalline PERC cell, multi-busbars, three-cut cell, and dual-glass platform technology.
