2011-09-01 20:02 827

SHANGHAI, September 1, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- Trina Solar Limited (TSL) ("Trina Solar" or the "Company"), a leading integrated manufacturer of solar photovoltaic (PV) products from the production of ingots, wafers and cells to the assembly of PV modules, announced today that it will introduce its new multicrystalline module ("TSM-PC/PA05A") at the PVSEC exhibition in Hamburg, Germany, to be held from September 5 to 8, 2011. The new module will be displayed at Trina Solar's booth B6/B24.

In line with Trina Solar's philosophy of "More Power, Less Space," the new 60-cell TSM-PC/PA05A continues the development of its six-inch multicrystalline cell series. This module adds to Trina Solar's existing multicrystalline product portfolio, which is currently comprised of the TSM-PC/PA05 and the TSM-PC/PA14. The module is undergoing production scale up to be available in the fourth quarter of 2011.

Introducing Trina Solar's 'Honey' Platform of improved technology combined with newly developed multicrystalline cells

TSM-PC/PA05A's dimensions and high power output performance offer a universal solution for a wide range of applications in the residential, commercial and utility segments. The module is made up of 60 newly-developed six-inch deep blue cells called "Honey." This name refers to Trina Solar's quest to provide solutions which target a 'sweet spot' when optimizing a module's cost vs. its efficiency. Powered by the new 'Honey' cells, the TSM-PC/PA05A uses an improved back sheet, EVA, string ribbon and coating glass that enable the module to achieve power outputs ranging between 245W and 260W and deliver a module conversion efficiency of up to 15.9%. Further efficiency improvements in the 'Honey' Platform are scheduled for 2012. Trina Solar's practical aim is to provide monocrystalline efficiencies at multicrystalline economics.

Positive power tolerance, new warranty

The module is compatible with all common mounting substructures and characterized by its mechanical strength and ability to withstand high wind and large snow loads of 2400 and 5400 Pa respectively. Trina Solar offers a 25-year linear power warranty, along with a 10-year product warranty and guaranteed positive power tolerance of 0/+3%.

"Trina Solar's high performance multicrystalline module series, based on proven and efficient technological manufacturing platform, offers the reliability and premium performance to ensure our brand's leadership as market opportunities continue to expand," said Mark Kingsley, Chief Commercial Officer of Trina Solar. "Trina Solar's focus is to provide our customers continuously higher module performance and power output, to improve overall system costs and return on investment."
