Trina Solar has a variety of modules and solutions to fit all solar project needs. The newly launched Vertex module series, benefit from square mono cells and high-density encapsulation technology. The efficiency of Vertex can reach up to 21%, one of the highest in the industry.
The Vertex 210 family covers five power types of modules, namely 400W, 500W, 550W, 600W and the 670W, each of them suitable for all-around application, including residential and commercial rooftops, power plants and agricultural and fishing farms. As the PV industry embraces grid parity, the Vertex series has a prominent edge in LCOE as a result of Trina Solar’s continued push to reduce costs by improving module power and efficiency.
Besides this, Trina also introduced its tracking solutions. TrinaTracker is specialized in the design, manufacturing, installation and maintenance of fixed tilts and solar trackers. With more than 5 GW developed worldwide, offices on the five continents and more than 300 projects carried out, TrinaTracker is your partner of reference for large scale solar projects. TrinaTracker offers its clients a product of optimal quality with the most advanced technology, thereby achieving a better performance in each project. They adapt to any request and provide custom-made solutions to their clients.
Introducing The Vertex 600W Bifacial Dual Glass Monocrystalline Module
Based on the 210mm large-size silicon wafer and monocrystalline PERC cell, this latest double glass bifacial 600W module, DEG20C.20 comes with several innovative design features allowing high power output of more than 600Wp. This module absorbs solar irradiation from both sides, and can generate up to 25% of additional power generation from the backside depending on the surface albedo.

The module series is built with a focus on maximising the return on investment for the customers. The module series also offers the lowest guaranteed 1st year and annual degradation and is compatible with mainstream system components such as inverters and tracking systems.
The high-power mono PERC module series offers up to 21.4% module efficiency with high density interconnect technology. It also uses multi-busbar technology for better light trapping effect, lower series resistance and improved current collection
Excellent temperature coefficient and low irradiation performance brings better power generation. Other key features of the module series include minimized micro-cracks with innovative non-destructive cutting technology and ensured PID resistance through cell process & module material control.
The module series is highly reliable and can be installed in harsh environments such as salt, ammonia, sand, high temperature and high humidity areas. The module offers mechanical performance up to 5400 Pa positive load and 2400 Pa negative load.
Most importantly, the module series offers a very high project yield. The technology offers excellent IAM (Incident Angle Modifier) and low irradiance performance, which has been validated by 3rd party certifications.
Based on the aim of improving the system efficiency and reducing the balance-of-system costs, Trina Solar’s research and development team has introduced an innovative low-voltage design which allows more modules to be connected per string. Typically, Trina can interconnect 33 Vertex modules into a 1500V string. Compared with other module types, a single module string can achieve up to a 41% power increase, At system level, there are potentials of 15% racking decrease, 17% foundation decrease and 35% combiner box decrease,(number varies depending on design and site conditions) indicating an innovative technological breakthrough and ushering in a new era of 600W+.
Trina Bifacial + Tracker Solution
Having early access to the new module technology meant TrinaTracker had a head-start on its tracker competitors when it came to wind-tunnel verification and performing the necessary due diligence to integrate smart trackers with the new, larger solar panels in longer string lengths. Trina is unique because it is the only supplier for an integrated module and tracker solution in the entire solar industry, providing a lower risk profile for long term asset owners through single point accountability in service.
In a recent study focused on the LCOE advantage and value of the Trina 600W+ Vertex Bifacial Dual-Glass Module with Single-Axis 2 portrait installation (2P) tracker, the report found that Trina Solar’s Vertex 210mm bifacial dual-glass module can cut BOS by up to 6.32% and LCOE by 3.72% compared with the 166mm bifacial dual-glass module.
TrinaTracker consists of two series of trackers, the One-in-portrait Dual Row Agile and the Two-in-portrait Vanguard both of which perfectly cater to leading 210mm ultra-high power modules.
TrinaTracker has four core product advantages: high reliability, more yield gain through our proprietary “SuperTrack” intelligent machine learning tracker controller (which has been independently verified to boost yield by +3% on typical sites and up to 8% on sites with uneven terrain), low O&M (operation & maintenance) costs with well proven critical components and unified contact channel (modules and trackers). Up to 120 modules can be installed with both types of trackers.
Three major structural advantages in the product design significantly improve the efficiency of the trackers. One is the exclusive patented third-generation spherical bearing design that prevents structural deformation and reduces the load on the drive system and motor, thereby reducing failure rate and effectively improving system stability. Secondly, to meet the demands of end users for lower O&M costs, TrinaTracker uses more easily replaceable spherical bearings and drivetrain components that reduce system failure rates and O&M costs. Trina Solar, with more than 10 years’ experience of design and installation, has now taken its spherical bearings applications to more than 40 countries. Finally, extensive structure design value engineering made possible through comprehensive full aeroelastic wind tunnel testing with world renowned wind consultancies RWDI and CPP means TrinaTracker requires significantly fewer foundations compared to other trackers, reducing construction cost and risk.
