The two single-axis tracking systems of TrinaTracker i.e. Agile-1P and Vanguard-2P are compatible with large format modules, said DNV in its report.

TrinaTracker is the tracker business unit of Chinese solar module manufacturer Trina Solar.

An independent energy expert and assurance provider, DNV has issued a report entitled ‘Technology Review of Two Single-Axis Tracking System: Agile-1P and Vanguard-2P’ which are trackers made by Trina Tracker.

In order to comprehensively assess the upgraded tracker solutions for large format modules, DNV applied a complete assessment system to cover all aspects of the tracker business including - but not limited to - design and structural calculations, supply chain capabilities, quality and environmental safety control systems, market performance and outlook, reliability warranty, and operations and maintenance (O&M) performance.

The DNV team also assessed various reports of TrinaTracker throughout the product life cycle, including: wind tunnel test reports, finite element method (FEM) reports, system test reports, authentication certificates, calculation sheets, detailed drawings, calculation sheets of pre-sale and mid-sale stages, ground survey reports, installation manuals, and other professional reports of engineering design, O&M manual and O&M cost in the after[1]sale stage.

According to the report, the available certifications, design, manufacturing and sale services of TrinaTracker are in line with the common international requirements with respect to quality and environmental management. Moreover, TrinaTracker adopts the FMEA (Failure Mode and Effects Analysis) methodology in the product development and maintains strict optimization records as per the best practice in the market.

Commenting on TrinaTracker’s product, César Hidalgo, DNV’s principal engineer of solar systems, said “TrinaTracker’s new-generation trackers are an upgrade that stands on the shoulders of historical products. TrinaTracker also presents a well-developed forward-looking R&D technology path to continuously meet customer needs.”

“DNV’s comprehensive assessment once again validates the technical advancement, high reliability and significant system value of TrinaTracker, thus further consolidating the financing value of TrinaTracker in the global market. With DNV’s assessment opinions, the majority of owners, investors, EPC and other interested parties will have more confidence in the new-generation trackers compatible with large modules, which in turn will accelerate the scale application of upgraded PV system products,” said Duan Shunwei, head of the tracker business unit of Trina Solar.
