Trina Solar Co., Ltd. ("Trina Solar" or the "Company"), a leading global PV and smart energy total solution provider, today announced the recent successful grid connection of a 112MW PV power plant using Trina Solar 210mm Vertex 670W ultra-high power modules in Dachaidan, Qinghai Province (China). Covering an area of 217 hectares, the PV project can provide about 220,000 MWh green power per year and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by about 200,000 tons.
With a vast area and an average altitude of more than 3,400 meters, the Dachaidan region offers ample solar resources, which makes it an ideal location for solar power plant. To maximize the efficiency, the owner, Concord New Energy, looked for PV modules with high energy yield and great reliability. After cautious comparisons, it was decided to employ Trina Solar's 670W Vertex series of most advanced ultra-high power modules, which was just launched early this year. The first batch of modules was shipped on June 16; it took only three months to complete the project and connect to the grid.
The 670W Vertex modules are built for enduring the harsh environmental conditions of this project, including desert, uninhabited land, high altitude, strong wind and sand, and huge differences in temperature. The modules have passed rigorous tests including non-uniform snow-load test, extreme wind tunnel test, extreme low-temperature mechanical load test and hail test, which confirmed their ultra-high reliability. This July, Trina Solar published a serial report on the mechanical reliability of 670W Vertex modules with details on the outstanding module performance in “extremely challenging tests”. In the era of grid parity, the advanced Vertex 210mm series modules have prominent advantages in Levelized Cost of Energy (LCOE).
Entering the PV 6.0 era, Trina Solar always focuses on adding value to customers by offering the most cost-effective and highly-efficient products.
