  • Module provider Trina Solar is to supply 187.5 MW of its double-glass Duomax modules to energy EnBW for the Weesow-Willmersdorf solar farm near Germany's funding, Berlin.

The project is supposedly Germany's largest to day and the initial large-scale PV nuclear power plant to be built without rewards through the EEG, Germany's lawful framework for supporting renewables.

The initial 18,000 of the modules have actually currently been provided to the site, which is located 26km to the north-east of Berlin. In overall the order will see 465,000 modules released by November this year, with completion of the predicted targeted by the end of 2020.

EnBW stated the project was set to prove solar can be successful without the requirement for feed-in tolls following steep expense decreases over the past decade.

" Large-scale PV projects like this one are required to additional breakthrough the improvement of energy systems. The Weesow-Willmersdorf Solar Park is a turning point in this regard", claimed Thorsten Jörß, head of solar project growth at EnBW as well as managing supervisor of the Weesow-Willmersdorf Solar Park. "We are strongly convinced that solar energy is competitive."

The dual-glass structure of Trina's Duomax series of modules is declared to supply far better resistance to ageing, even in rough conditions.

Gonzalo de la Viña, head of European module organisation at Trina Solar, claimed: "We are particularly pleased that EnBW has actually chosen Trina Solar's tested dual glass modern technology for this front runner project. Given that its introduction in 2013, this modern technology has matured continually.

" Systems with incredibly lengthy lifetimes will normally take advantage of the resilience of dual-glass modules as well as our prolonged efficiency guarantee. Overall, we are also seeing a clear fad on the market towards the use of dual-glass modules, specifically for large, independently funded plants. The crucial elements here are effectiveness, reliability and also leading efficiency ensured over three years."
