Trina Solar Unveils Upgraded Vertex N Family as 720W Series Modules Continue to Lead 700W+ Trend

N-type modules using TOPCon technology will dominate global production this year, and high-power modules such as the Vertex N 720W series will lead the way in the 700W+ era, says Billy Christie, Director of the Product Engineering Center at Trina Solar US. Trina Solar globally unveiled its upgraded Vertex N 720W series modules, the Vertex N 625W, and the Vertex S+ 455W at the Tokyo PV Expo on February 28.


On the industry-leading 210mm product technology platform with n-type TOPCon Advanced technology innovation, Trina Solar has delivered an increase in the efficiency of laser-induced firing by 0.3%, upgrading TOPCon modules in all settings, including ground-mounted power stations for residential and commercial and industrial (C&I) applications. The upgraded Vertex N 720W modules have an efficiency of 23.2%, Vertex N 625W modules have an efficiency of 23.1%, and Vertex S+ 455W modules have an efficiency of up to 22.8%.


As an outstanding member of a portfolio of Vertex N products, Vertex N 720W series modules, a star in ground-mounted power stations, can greatly increase string power and decrease BOS cost compared with 182N-72 modules, according to an assessment of CAPEX and LCOE conducted for a project in Germany based on a simulated PV system.

Vertex N 720W series modules — featuring low-voltage, high-power, ultra-low degradation, and high bifaciality to deliver higher string power, greater installed system capacity, higher energy yield, and lower LCOE for utility projects — have been used in many different settings for great reliability, especially in rugged conditions, such as in high-altitude areas and vast desert regions.


Vertex N 625W modules, suitable for utility-scale or C&I solar applications, especially offer more feasibility to utility-scale projects in the most complex terrains and are highly compatible with trackers, with 13% more installation capacity for single-row tracker systems. The Vertex N 625W module is 2382mm by 1134mm, the dimensions promoted by Trina Solar and adopted in the industry, which improves the utilization rate of a 40HC container to 98.5%, reducing customers’ logistics and BOS costs.


The Vertex S+ 455W modules, based on 210mm rectangular silicon wafer (210R) cell technology with n-type TOPCon advanced technology, offer a high-powered yet compact solution dedicated to residential solar applications.

Trina Solar’s 210mm n-type scenario-based solutions, including Vertex N 720W series modules, Vertex N 625W modules, and Vertex S+ 455W modules, are tailored to operate in a wide range of settings with lower BOS costs and LCOE to maximize customer value.

After an initiative to standardize 700W+ module dimensions and upgrading the Photovoltaic Open Innovation Ecological Alliance propelled by Trina Solar at the end of last year, the Vertex N 720W series products are empowering the company to lead the industry into the 700W+ era further.

Trina Solar continues to push the industry toward industrializing 700W+ PV modules by promoting the industrialization of ultra-high-power and ultra-high-efficiency modules. The company will continue to innovate with its mainstream n-type i-TOPCon technology and products, offering greater customer value with advanced technology, reliable products, and solutions.
