The Chinese giant releases updated technical details of the Vertex series, the next-generation panels with a power of up to 600 W.

Meanwhile, it heats up the motors and begins serial production of the 550 W modules in the last quarter of 2020.

New 600 Wp photovoltaic modules, with an efficiency greater than 21%.

Trina Solar has announced its new 600 Wp photovoltaic modules. The Chinese giant takes the lead with a new product, presented at 600W + open photovoltaic ecological innovation alliance.

And it is no coincidence, of course, the presentation at this event. The Alliance in question – an industrial pact between 39 Chinese companies, producers of silicon, wafers, cells, modules, trackers, inverters, materials and equipment – was born with the precise objective of designing and produce “super” solar panels. A trend that has spread to the entire world photovoltaic industry, but in which the People’s Republic wants to play a leading role.

The first step beyond the coveted 600 watt threshold is taken with two new photovoltaic modules from the Vertex series.

By way of comparison, barely 10 years ago, the average production of photovoltaic modules was around 250 Wp.

The new 600 Wp PV modules are based on Vertex + 500 Wp technology, which the company has already defined as a stepping stone to the next great era of solar energy.

New generation units “are reinforced by a number of innovations, such as 210mm silicon wafer, high density packaging and multi-busbar technology (metal bars)Explains Zhang Yingbin, head of product strategy at Trina Solar.

These innovations “offer a photoelectric conversion efficiency greater than 21%“.

Due to its low voltage and high performance, the Vertex series offers enormous potential to further reduce the balance of system costs (i.e. expenses related to power losses in the plant).

Together with the main players in the industry, we believe that the new photovoltaic modules developed on the basis of an innovative technological platform will help reduce the cost of energy in various applications and maximize customer value.

In addition, given that the conversion efficiency of PERC cells is expected to exceed 24% soon, along with other factors such as design optimization, improved load capacity, and downdraft installation , the power will continue to increase.

Meanwhile, the company plans to mass produce its 550 Wp photovoltaic modules in the last quarter of 2020.
