Trina Solar’s Vertex modules gain first certification for use in marine settings, with high reliability affirmed
The independent, third-party certification is the latest extreme conditions certification earned by the Vertex module line.

[Fremont, California] July 11, 2023 – Trina Solar, a trendsetter in the global photovoltaics industry, was recognized by the technical systems testing, certification and inspection firm TÜV Rheinland in the independent assesor’s latest offshore photovoltaic test report. Trina Solar’s Vertex modules fully passed tests designed to evaluate the PV module’s ability to operate in the harsh environmental challenges posed by offshore PV plants such as high temperatures, high humidity, high salt mist, strong wind, strong waves and heavy precipitation. This places considerably higher demands on the reliability of such modules.

TÜV Rheinland awarding Trina Solar its first offshore PV module certificate.

Saltwater immersion (48h) +PID (+ and -, 192h, 95%RH85℃), static mechanical load, dynamic mechanical load (1000 cycles, 1000 Pa), TC50, HP10, DH2000 and salt mist corrosion (IEC 60068-2-52, severity 8) were among the full complement of tests passed by Trina Solar Vertex modules.

In addition to the latest TÜV Rheinland certification, Trina Solar’s Vertex modules have passed static mechanical load standard testing and rigorous testing for non-uniform snow load, extreme low temperature mechanical load, hail, multiple extreme dynamic mechanical load, and extreme wind tunnel effect. All of these demonstrate that Vertex modules provide excellent mechanical performance in extreme environments.

As a leading global PV and smart energy total solution provider, Trina Solar adopts a user-centered approach and has always delivered high-performance modules with great reliability to global customers. Trina Solar’s Vertex modules managing to remain fully intact as they were buffeted by Typhoon Muifa, the strongest typhoon in China last year. In addition, Trina Solar delivered Vertex modules for an offshore PV project in an outdoor empirical study in Shandong province.

Trina Solar's Vertex modules have become a primary choice for power plants. The company's newly launched n-type scenario-based solutions are tailored to operate in a wide range of settings, with lower BOS costs and LCOE to maximize customer value.
