Trina Solar supplies 61MW of solar PV modules for Green Tower project in Brandenburg
High product quality, delivery capacity, and flexibility are key success factors
MUNICH, 16 January 2013 – Trina Solar Limited (NYSE:TSL) (“Trina Solar” or “the Company”), a global leader in photovoltaic modules, solutions and services, has supplied PV modules totaling 61MW for the Green Tower project in the German federal state of Brandenburg. More than 252,000 multi-crystalline Trina Solar modules, each with an average output of more than 240Wp, have been installed on the former Preschen airfield in Jocksdorf, Brandenburg. Following a land conversion process, the compound was developed into a giant solar farm with rows of modules extending for more than a kilometre. The PV park that now covers the former military field has been fully commissioned and is considered to be one of the most efficient plants in the world. It provides clean solar power covering the annual energy needs of approximately 17,000 households.
“Selecting Trina Solar as our main module provider was a very good choice”, said Alfred Behrens, CEO at AB Unternehmensberatung & Beteiligungsgesellschaft mbH, who initiated the project. “Because construction advanced well ahead of schedule, we ordered an additional 5.5MW of modules, which Trina Solar was able to provide and deliver to the site in just three days. Delivery capacity like that is hard to beat. And in terms of product quality, Trina Solar is top-class.”
“We are glad to have contributed to the success of this solar farm as the main module provider”, said Ben Hill, Head of Europe at Trina Solar. “Their decision to work with Trina Solar clearly endorses our corporate strategy and priorities: high quality and adherence to schedules, and being flexible when parameters change – these are the ingredients you need to make large-scale projects like this successful.”
