  • Th said n-type cells will be used to produce new generation Vertex N modules.
  • The power outcome will certainly be up to 605 W with efficiency reaching 22.4%.

Leading company that delves into r & d of PV items, EPC and O&M, Trina Solar has rolled 210 mm n-type i-TOPCon cells off the production line in its 8 GW capacity factory in Suqian, Jiangsu province.

Th claimed n-type cells will be used to produce new generation Vertex N modules. The power outcome will certainly be up to 605 W with efficiency getting to 22.4%. The firm claims that the full-scale production will certainly ensure shipment while improving competitiveness as well as developing better value for customers.

The establishment of the 8 GW 210mm n-type i-TOPCon cell manufacturing facility in Suqian spreads to close to 70,000 square meters. The building and construction of the center began in July last year. The production devices was set up at November-end. By December 30, 2022, the factory was up and running and also completely operational. Trina Solar preserves that advanced innovation is being utilized on the production line including for quality assurance.

The production line, mostly utilized for creating 210 mm n-type i-TOPCon cells, used for the newly launched Vertex N 605W modules, capitalises on the cutting-edge cell size as well as low-voltage, making the Vertex N 605 W modules a good suitable for 104-meter-long trackers. Besides, there is no waste of space involved

6 to 12 even more modules can be attached on the trackers instead of the standard n-type 72-cell as well as 78-cell modules. The Vertex N 605W modules are thus suitable with trackers. They additionally aid reduce BOS expenses.

p-type vs n-type, approaching trends in n-type

The commercialisation of n-type cells began last year and also they are an appealing development as p-type PERC nears efficiency limits. Trina Solar set sights on developing n-type cell technology 7 years earlier. In 2016, the company built utility-scale n-type empirical base in Menghe, Jiangsu province. Furthermore, it likewise supplied a total of 500MW i-TOPCon modules for 2 leading jogger projects in Tongchuan, Shaanxi province, and also Changzhi, Shanxi province, in 2019. In 2021, continuing on the spree, it developed a pilot line of 500 MW n-type i-TOPCon modules based upon the 210 mm product technology system. This year, the module capacity of Trina Solar's 210 mm n-type innovation is expected to get to 30 GW.

In the p-type location, 210 mm innovation leads the worldwide application of 600 W+ modules ending up being an industry-wide international trend. In the new n-type era, 210mm innovation as well as n-type innovation will work together to make the most of the advantages of the four keys that open reduced LCOE, specifically high power, high efficiency, high energy return as well as high reliability.

Trina Solar has actually continued existence in the highest group confirming its continuous high performance degree in making capacity, technology advancement, product deliveries as well as financial standing and also its placement amongst the industry leaders in each of the locations. Trina Solar has maintained its AAA standing for the 3rd consecutive quarter in the PV ModuleTech bankability positions released by PV Tech for Q4 2022.
