Leading ‘Silicon Module Super League’ (SMSL) member Trina Solar exceeded PV module shipment guidance in the second quarter of 2016, partially driven by increased shipments to China. China became the largest contributor with external shipments growing 150.1% sequentially and 118.7% year-over-year. Quarterly module shipments were the second highest on record.
Struggling ‘Silicon Module Super League’ (SMSL) member Yingli Green Energy has reported better than guided module shipments in the second quarter of 2016, due to strong sales in China. However, due to the significant decline in downstream project development in China in the second half of the year, Yingli Green guided shipments could halve in the third quarter.
