Can you tell us about the latest 500wp series module and Tracker. How will it help the Indian markets?
With the PV module sector gradually entering the 5.0 era, Trina Solar announced its first shipment of Vertex solar modules in March. The PV industry has embraced the 500W-plus power since the beginning of the year. Vertex facilitates the commercialization of new technologies and paves the way for the next module power upgrade to 600W. Trina Solar has announced the global launch of TrinaPro Mega in June, an optimized solution for the application of ultra-high power modules in downstream systems. TrinaPro Mega, is based on the TrinaPro solution launched in 2018. It’s an integrated solution combining high-output modules (500Wp to 600Wp) with smart PV controllers and trackers, smart inverters, and digital cloud-based operations and maintenance software. The upgraded version provides an 8% to 15% lower balance-of-systems cost and 3% to 8% increase in power generation compared to the first version.
Has Covid-19 affected the production process? How is Trina Solar coping up with the same?
China was the first to be impacted by the coronavirus but the outbreak was largely contained within China’s Hubei province. We had limited impact, but quickly returned back to full capacity while implementing the new set of rules to protect the labour from the Covid-19 virus out break at work locations. In India some of our C&I orders are delayed but we are not seeing any delays in the utility sector.
How do you see your company evolving over the year?
Last six months are very important for us at Trina Solar as the technology advances and minimized costs promoted and led by Trina Solar have played a significant role in the rapid development of commercial and residential power plant projects that reach grid parity. We were re-listed in Shanghai stock exchange, and with the new Vertex series 600Wp+ modules we are confident to maintain our top position.
