Suntech’s Modules Receive Additional Quality Ranking from the VDE Institute

Suntech’s modules receive the certificate of the enhanced hail test

WUXI, China, April 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Suntech announced that its modules received the VDE certification of the enhanced hail test, demonstrating the high quality and durability of Suntech’s modules in extreme weather conditions, testing higher than other modules in the industry. In 2014, Suntech’s modules received the VDE Quality-Tested certification, placing them as one of three brands globally to receive this quality ranking.

The cells of PV modules will have micro-cracks if used in areas that experience frequent hail storms, which is detrimental to module performance and long-term reliability,” said Xiong Haibo, CEO of Suntech. “The ranking highlights that our modules exceed market requirements and demonstrates that Suntech follows the market demand. The certification also indicates that Suntech modules can maintain excellent performance, high-quality and safety standards even in extreme weather conditions. We hope to use this recent certification to lay the foundation for Suntech’s entry into markets that face unfavorable weather conditions yet are eager to adopt solar solutions.”

Established in 1920, the VDE Institute is one of the world’s leading testing and certification institutions. It is well-known globally as an international accredited institution for testing various electro technical equipment and appliances. The VDE’s standards exceed existing industry quality requirements.

“At present, most manufacturers have passed the hail test based on the standard IEC61215, which uses hail of 25mm in diameter to hit the surface of modules, producing about 1.99J of energy during the test. Yet, the VDE test uses hail of 40mm in diameter, the 4th level of hail test in accordance with Swiss standards, which uses hail at a speed of 27.5m/s to hit the modules, producing energy no less than 11.1J, which simulates extreme environmental conditions,” said Dr. Han Qiang, VDE’s General Manager in Shanghai. “The results revealed that Suntech’s modules have nearly no power loss and completely meet the enhanced standard requirements, indicating that they have an excellent ability to withstand hail impact performance even in extreme weather circumstances.”

Trina Solar Announces Shipment of 9.9 MW Modules for One of the Largest Solar Farms In Panama

CHANGZHOU, China, April 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Trina Solar Limited (NYSE: TSL) (“Trina Solar” or the “Company”), a global leader in photovoltaic (“PV”) modules, solutions, and services, today announced that it has been selected by Solarcentury, a project developer and EPC, to supply around 33,000 of its PC14 modules for a 9.9MWp solar farm project in Cocle province, central Panama.

Solarcentury will use the high-powered solar PV modules supplied by Trina Solar to construct the solar farm for ECOSolar, a Latin American solar investment company. Working alongside local solar company Hybrytec, Solarcentury will build the 9.9MWp Divisa Solar system. The system will be one of the largest solar farms in Panama connected to the grid and sold on the spot market once completed.

Ideal for large-scale installations, the PC14 module is one of the industry’s most trusted modules due to its high levels of reliability and performance capabilities, even in challenging environmental conditions. Thanks to its high power footprint, installation time and BOS costs are significantly reduced, helping to achieve maximum cost efficiency. The farm will be capable of producing enough clean solar energy to power around 3,000 homes in the area, which will help meet the country’s growing electricity demands and reduce CO2 emissions by more than 4,850 tons each year.

Zhiguo Zhu, COO and President of Module Business Unit at Trina Solar, said: “We are very pleased to be able to partner with Solarcentury in this project, which will yield benefits for the Panamanian people and for the environment. Over the last few years we have expanded our presence in Latin America and this project marks a major milestone for us. Thanks to its good climate, the region is well suited to solar PV generation, and has abundant space. With an increasing demand for electricity in the area, the solar farm will diversify the energy mix and thus drive an efficient and clean supply of energy. We believe Panama and Latin America hold high potential for the solar sector and this project demonstrates Trina Solar’s continued progress as a leading provider of solar PV modules in the region.”

Matthew Boulton, COO at Solarcentury said: “Trina Solar is a new partner for Solarcentury and as a leading global brand, it was an obvious choice as part of establishing Solarcentury in new countries. Trina Solar was able to support the tight timelines required to fulfil the project and provided regular communication and support from its UK team.”
