This project, installed over fish ponds in Taishan, Guangdong, China, continued to be used for fish and shrimp breeding after the system was connected to the grid. However, the climate in the marine mudflat location places particularly tough demands for modules’ safety and reliability, such as potential induced degradation, corrosion of electrical equipment, tougher installation, and construction.
Trina Solar's modules fully consider weather-fastness in design, avoiding the risk of water intrusion, and ensuring high reliability and energy yield in harsh environments. From multiple rigorous mechanical load tests in the laboratory to practical applications in projects worldwide, Trina Solar’s modules have always withstood any challenges with first-class reliability. Its Vertex 670W module was awarded a damp-heat reliability prize by China General Certification Center in early 2022, which fully confirmed its superior reliability and applicability in fishing, mudflat, floating, and seaside scenarios.
As added benefits, solar modules installed above the water can shade the fish pond, reduce the water temperature, cut evaporation, and effectively block strong sunlight, which significantly reduces the incidence of fish dying as a result of high-water temperatures. The project’s harmonious integration of technology and nature not only improves the local environment but also reaps a harvest in fishery and power generation.
Trina Solar was a logical choice for the hot and humid climate. Prior to this 100MW fishery project, Trina Solar Vertex modules powered a 60MW solar farm — one of the world’s largest inland floating solar PV systems in Singapore — a 70MW fishery photovoltaic project in Hebei, China, and many other projects worldwide.
For the past 25 years, Trina Solar has focused on technological innovation to provide systematic solutions based on local conditions and customers’ needs. Trina Solar modules deliver proven worry-free power generation throughout the panel’s life cycle to lower LCOE with high reliability, high efficiency, high power, and high energy yield.
