Trina Solar supplies 7 MW of modules to UK project


Chinese solar manufacturer Trina Solar has supplied 24,000 of its PC14 modules for a 7 MW project in the UK.

Installer Ikaros Solar turned to Trina in part because of the modulesÂ’ ability to perform in low light as well as having high wind load and snow load bearing ability.

The 7 MW scheme at Goose Willow Farm in Abingdon, Oxfordshire will feature modules with power outputs between 290 Wp and 295 Wp and marks the first collaboration between Trina and Belgian installer Ikaros Solar.

The announcement of the supply deal, in a Trina Solar press release comes on the same day the UK solar trade body the Solar Trade Association (STA) revealed the UK government plans to introduce standards for large-scale solar farms amid concerns over ‘irresponsible developments.’
