Trina Solar has announced that the first volumes of its new Vertex S modules have arrived in Europe. Vertex S is the first ultra-high power module specifically designed for the rooftop sector, offering a universal solution for rooftops with a high degree of performance and flexibility. The module will be available through Trina Solar’s strong network of distribution partners across Europe.
Trina Solar has applied its cutting-edge Vertex technology to give the Vertex S the power to transform both residential and commercial rooftop photovoltaic systems and the wider PV industry.
Supporting this launch and emphasizing the importance of the small-scale and C&I segment, Trina Solar has established an extensive network of distribution partners across the region. Likewise, the Company’s strong regional sales and service teams with its members located in all major markets are committed to serving customers locally.
Vertex S represents a power increase of up to 65 Wp (or 17%) compared to its predecessors. Module efficiency has increased when compared to previous generations to more than 21%. Combining Vertex’s innovative 210 mm silicon wafers, multi-busbar design, non-destructive cutting and high-density packing means the output power of a module can reach 405 Wp and beyond.
Vertex S is Trina Solar’s most compact 210 mm-based model to date and is designed to cover a range of rooftop applications, so one universal product can be stocked to suit a variety of purposes. Module and pallet dimensions have been optimized so a maximum number of modules can be shipped in each container, saving on both haulage and storage costs.
The Vertex S size-to-weight ratio makes the modules easier and safer to load, move and install. For flexibility and ease of use, electrical parameters are kept within the operating limits of standard inverters. The module is designed for compatibility with existing mainstream inverters, optimizers and mounting systems for residential and commercial applications.
