Based on financial statements from leading module manufacturers, several authoritative organizations have placed Trina Solar in second place worldwide for its 8GW module shipments. This is consistent with the findings of PV InfoLink, an authoritative PV analysis agent, and PV-Tech a world-renowned PV media outlet that ranked global module shipment shipments last year, with Trina Solar in second place. According to the company, it plans to maintain its position by shipping modules totaling 43GW this year.
Analysts in the industry believe that Trina Solar’s high-reliability, high power, low-LCOE 210 module technology, which was pioneered by the company, has contributed to its immense success. G12-210 Vertex technology is widely accepted in the industry. Global shipments of 210 modules rose sharply last year, to 26GW, media reports say, and of these shipments Trina Solar contributed 16GW, putting it in the first place. By March cumulative shipments of 210 modules had soared to surpass 35GW shipments. With the PV industry leaping into the 600W+ era, industry chain collaboration has become smoother, inverters and trackers are fully compatible with 210 modules, the 600W+ ecology is more mature, and the production capacity and shipment of 210 high power modules will continue to rise.
Trina Solar’s product reliability and brand bankability have been recognized internationally many times. It had been named the Top Performer by PVEL, an independent PV testing laboratory, for seven consecutive years. It has also scored 100% in the BNEF Bankability Survey, ranked as the top bankable module supplier for six consecutive years, and rated as a tier 1 manufacturer of BNEF PV modules in the fourth quarter last year.
