Trina Solar Co., Ltd. (“Trina Solar” or the “Company”), a leading global PV and smart energy total solution provider, today announced the launch of Vertex S, its latest high efficiency PV module series for residential and commercial rooftop application, to the European marketplace. Bringing the innovative Vertex technology to rooftop-ready module formats, the new product line is set to exceed 405W output power. Vertex S is a universal solution that comes in different visual options, thus catering to the needs of both residential and commercial customers.
With this latest addition to Trina Solar’s Vertex product range, the Company takes the next logical step in its innovation leadership. The cutting-edge Vertex technology platform combines 210mm wafers, multi-busbar design, non-destructive cutting and high density packing. By applying this platform to the new Vertex S family, Trina Solar is able to boost output power to more than 405Wp, a power increase of up to 60Wp or 17% compared to previous product generations. Module efficiency increases by 1% to more than 21%.
With Vertex S, Trina Solar has created a universal solution for rooftops with a high degree of performance and flexibility. The product series is designed for compatibility with existing mainstream mounting systems, optimizers and inverters for residential and commercial application. Electrical parameters are kept within the operating limits of standard inverters. Maintaining an easy-to-handle module format and weight for rooftop mounting, the Vertex S product family features three versions: The TSM-DE09 is available with a standard silver frame or with a black frame. There will also be a full black version, with both of the latter products featuring great aesthetics for residential rooftops.
Vertex S customers benefit from an improved reliability, with an upgraded product warranty of 15 years. At the same time, Vertex S mechanical loads and degradation levels have been improved, compared to the previous mainstream product generation. – Trina Solar also ensures that Vertex S is a greener product with a reduced carbon footprint: Brand new, highly efficient factories and manufacturing equipment will be employed, with a reduced material usage. Due to its optimized dimensions, Vertex S maximizes the number of modules per container, driving down carbon emissions as well as logistics costs for customers. The new module series comes in a completely recyclable wood and carton packaging.
Gonzalo de la Viña, Head of Module Business Europe at Trina Solar, said: "The Vertex S series is another milestone in Trina Solar’s long history of PV innovation. This module is the solar industry’s most powerful product in the former 60-cell range. We enrich the rooftop segment with the highly successful 210mm technology, of which we have already sold more than 2GW to utility-scale customers since its launch less than six months ago. This is in the best interest of our distribution and EPC customers, who have been actively requesting a high power module solution to cater to residential and commercial needs. The Vertex S series is a highly reliable product, which is reflected in the extended workmanship warranty of 15 years and more. As a market leader it is in our veins to push boundaries in terms of efficiency, power and reliability of our products.”
