Trina Solar has announced that it will supply 70 MW of its TSM-PC14 PV modules to a large utility-scale project in Chile, with delivery beginning during September. These high-efficiency multicrystalline modules feature power ratings of 300-310 watts, and Trina notes that the TSM-PC14 offers stable performance in environments with large variations in temperature such as Chile.
This follows on a contract announced in April to supply 36 MW of TSM-PC14 modules to another utility-scale project in Chile. These two deals make Trina one of the largest module suppliers into the Chilean market, however it is still behind JinkoSolar, which has secured 140 MW of module contracts in the nation to date.
Chile's solar market is growing very rapidly. The August 2014 report from the nation's Center for Renewable Energy lists 487 MW-AC of solar PV projects under construction, compared to only 163 MW-AC two months before. The report lists another 189 MW-AC of PV as operational, compared to only 6.7 MW-AC in January.
