Trina Solar recognized as “Top Performer” module manufacturer by DNV GL

Trina Solar Limited ("Trina Solar" or the "Company"), a leading total solutions provider for solar energy, has been recognized by DNV GL as the “Top Performer” among global PV module manufacturers. This is the fourth time that Trina Solar has received this award.

DNV GL is a global quality assurance and risk management company which provides classification, technical assurance, software and independent expert advisory services to the maritime, oil & gas, power and renewables industries. In 2014, DNV GL started releasing its annual PV Module Reliability Scorecard. The Scorecard is the most comprehensive comparison of PV module reliability test results publicly available on the market today, covering four major tests: thermal cycling, damp heat, dynamic mechanical load and potential induced degradation. The recognition of “Top Performer” is based on DNV GL’s PV Module Reliability Scorecard.

In the past five years, DNV GL has tested over 300 bills of material (BOM) for more than 50 PV module manufacturers. Nine of the top ten global module manufacturers and more than 70% of the latest Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF) “Tier 1” manufacturers have participated in the PV Module Product Qualification Program (PQP).

By the end of 2017, Trina Solar's total PV module shipments had exceeded 32GW, ranking first in the world. Today, the company offers a comprehensive PV module portfolio, including the monocrystalline DUOMAX twin module. This product combines high efficiency bifacial cells with a dual glass construction, and helps increase power generation as well as reducing BOS and LCoE.

Integrating Trina Solar’s industry-leading solar modules, state-of-the-art tracker systems and world-class inverters, Trina Solar launched its smart PV solution, TrinaPro this March. TrinaPro can significantly reduce the system LCoE by combining premium components, optimized system integration and smart O&M interconnection. The tracker system which is part of TrinaPro has been certified by DNV GL for its advanced power generating capacity.
