Trina Solar will supply 60MW of PV modules to Xinyi Solar for solar projects in Anhui, China, which will be used in utility scale and agricultural greenhouse solar projects.
Of the total 60MW, Trina Solar will supply 5MW of its TSM-PC05A modules, 30MW of TSM-PC14 modules and 25MW of dual glass TSM-PDG5 modules.
The PDG5 dual glass solar panel will be used as a roof bracing piece for an agricultural greenhouse located within Xinyi Solar’s power plant in Anhui province.
According to Trina solar, compared to conventional modules, dual glass PDG5 modules offer appropriate transmittance of sunlight, which better maintains greenhouse temperatures
In addition to this, their high performance in harsh environments offers resistance to the use of pesticide sprays in the greenhouse.
Panel shipments are expected to be completed by August 2014.
Trina Solar Module Business Unit president Zhiguo Zhu said the company is pleased to be working with its long term strategic partner Xinyi Solar to support its continuing solar project development in China.
“Following the launch of our PDG5 module in early 2013, Trina Solar has received significant interest from both existing and prospective customers due to its superior value proposition and numerous unique features,” Zhu said.
“With an extended 30-year warranty, our modules will be able to maintain a stable output throughout the course of their life time, which we believe will ultimately generate high returns for our customers.”
Wesley Lee, CEO of Xinyi Solar, said, “We chose to partner with Trina Solar because they not only offer a wide range of diverse products but also due to their continued efforts in R&D and innovation. We believe Trina’s high quality dual glass solar modules are the best fit for our project needs out of the products currently available on the market for our project. We look forward to continuing to work closely with Trina Solar as we develop our downstream business across China.”
Trina Solar said that its PDG5 is a UL/IEC certified frameless module comprises two layers of 2.5mm heat-strengthened glass.
