Trina Solar Limited today announced the introduction of new products at this year's Intersolar Exhibition in Munich, Germany, which will be held from June 8 to 10, 2011. These include the Company's new monocrystalline module with Comax technology and its Trinamount mounting hardware solution.
Renowned core technology combined with new "Comax" cell
The new monocrystalline module TSM-DC/DA01A was designed to endorse Trina Solar's philosophy of "More Power, Less Space". It is composed of 72 newly developed 5-inch "Comax" cells and is expected to provide an effective solution for residential and small commercial systems. The cell is nearly fully squared which gives approximately four percent more surface area compared to a standard cell. This, combined with enhanced technology, means that it is expected to produce up to 10 watts more than the Company's standard monocrystalline product.
Trinamount I, II & III – One principle, many different roof types
In addition, under the newly created "Solutions" product series, Trina Solar is developing products that expand upon current PV module offerings to include other system-related components. By combining the Company's high performing modules with the innovative Trinamount mounting solutions, overall system costs are expected to be considerably reduced, increasing the pricing competitiveness of solar energy compared to traditional energy sources.
Trinamount hardware will be compatible with a wide variety of roof types. Trinamount I is designed for tile roofs and is compatible with Trina Solar's TSM-PC/PA05 module. Trinamount II is designed for pitched roofs, and comes with mounting hardware for composition shingle, standing seam, corrugated and trapezoidal metal. Trinamount III is designed for use on flat roofs, especially designed for commercial PV systems. Trina Solar expects to distribute the Trinamount solution in the United States, the United Kingdom and Australia by the end of the third quarter of 2011. All solutions follow the common goal of reducing system costs through an innovative approach to PV mounting methodologies.
"We are pleased to have the opportunity to showcase our two new premium products at the Intersolar Exhibition," said Mr. Jifan Gao, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Trina Solar. "To further elevate our position as the industry's leading brand, we will continue to focus our efforts on delivering innovative market-driven products to bring the best value to our customers."
