Solar photovoltaic (PV) module manufacturer Trina Solar has launched TrinaTracker and its ultra-high power module 670W+ Vertex module in India.

The company said that it’s Vertex module has been comprised of larger solar cells i.e. 210mm in diameter, and incorporates other leading technologies, like - multi-busbar technology, to maximize light capture; high density encapsulation technology, to minimize the space between each cell; and cells that are split using non-destructive cutting technology. Non-destructive cutting is done at very lower temperature, resulting in a smooth cut.

The older generation modules use silicon cells that are smaller and will require more cells to achieve high power.

Commenting on the launch, Gaurav Mathur, Trina Solar India Director said “the 670W Vertex series inherits the non-destructive cutting, high-density interconnection and other high-precision technologies of earlier Vertex modules.”

“But the 670W module has even more power and the single string power gets 34 per cent higher than that of 500W+ modules in the industry.”

“In addition, 670W Vertex modules can be packed vertically – rather than horizontally – which means 12% more modules can be packed in each container, reducing shipping costs by 12% for each module,” adds Mathur.

The company claimed that high-power Vertex modules can achieve the total power output required for the project using fewer modules, resulting in lower levelized cost of energy (LCOE).

These modules also deliver lower balance of system (BOS) cost, because of less cabling, fewer mounting systems, combiner boxes, etc. Having fewer solar cells for each module reduces the voltage.

The launch of the 670W+ Vertex module in India coincides with the launch in India of TrinaTracker. “We have an advantage over our tracker competitors, because Trina Solar is a pioneer of the new, larger format bifacial modules,” said Mathur.

“Having early access to the new module technology meant TrinaTracker had a head[1]start on its tracker competitors when it came to wind-tunnel verification and performing the necessary due diligence to integrate smart trackers with the new, larger solar panels.”

He added “for example, we have optimized the trackers’ performance in terms of the longer string length possible with these modules. We can fully accommodate these longer strings on longer and wider tracker structures and this means we can have up to 40 modules in a string, unlocking savings not only on the tracker cost on motors and piles but also savings on downstream electrical BOS costs with fewer string cables, combiner boxes, trenches and so on.”
