Trina Solar ships first 20 MW batch of new DUOMAX twin modules

In a shipment sent on April 20, Trina Solar packed 20 MW of its new product – DUOMAX twin, a bifacial module built with PERC and dual glass technology.

The company, which went private last month, said that it had supplied its 72-cell modules, with a power output ranging from 340-350W, to a project located in the city of Golmud, central China.

This is the first order shipped for Trina Solar’s DUOMAX twin modules, following its launch late in March.

“This year is the market rearing stage for DUOMAX twin and this number will continue to rise steadily. We are seeing more orders flowing in across the globe,” said Yin Rongfang, VP of Trina Solar, head of global sales & marketing.

The new module combines high-efficiency PERC mono-crystalline bifacial power technology and dual glass technology.

Moreover, Trina Solar says that electricity generated from the module’s backside creates up to 25% more energy in a wide variety of environments, so it is particularly effective in areas with high diffuse reflection, as in the case of the Goldman project.
