Trina Solar Co. says its first large-size module with a 210 mm silicon wafer developed by the company, aptly named the 210 module, is now rolling off their production line. The move will greatly accelerate time-to-market for large-size modules.
Inside the 210
Trina Solar initiated the R&D of 210 modules last year. Based on the company’s leading multi-busbar technology, the first 210 module adopts an innovative 1/3-cut design. Based on a comprehensive consideration of potential challenges including strong module power, yield, manufacturing difficulties, hot spot risks, output current performance and junction box safety, Trina Solar’s multi-busbar and 1/3-cut design will pave the way for the compatibility and integration of large-size, high-power modules and downstream systems.
“With decades of accumulated experience in process and technology, we are confident that we can leverage the latest materials and technologies to create another high-performance and reliable module for the photovoltaic (PV) industry,” said the head of engineering technology R&D at Trina Solar. “Currently, our team is accelerating the transformation of our latest R&D outcomes into products that can go into mass production, leading the PV industry into the era of 500W module power.”
