Trina Solar Expands: 15.5GW Vietnam Solar Complex
- Trina Solar has commissioned a 15.5 GW solar manufacturing complex in Vietnam, with 210mm monocrystalline wafers, 6.5 GW wafer capacity & 4-5 GW module capacity. This marks a big step forward in Trina Solar's international manufacturing expansion, ensuring a steady supply of materials worldwide.
Trina Solar, a Chinese solar major, has commissioned a 15.5 GW solar manufacturing complex in Vietnam. It includes a 6.5 GW wafer capacity, 4 GW cell manufacturing capacity and 5 GW module capacity. The facility will produce 210mm monocrystalline silicon wafers with the first wafers rolling off the production line on August 23. The silicon wafer factory also includes monocrystalline extraction, square processing of silicon rods, cutting and processing of silicon. This complex will ensure a steady supply of materials for other module production sites the company has overseas. This marks a step forward for Trina Solar's international manufacturing expansion as it increases its flexibility to deliver products worldwide.
