Trina Solar meets desert challenges with smart PV and energy storage solutions

By Trina Solar

The 100MW Ulan Buh Desert Management, Energy Storage, and PV Project powered by Trina Solar’s Vertex modules

Trina Solar will take part in the 2024 edition of the World Future Energy Summit (WFES) in Abu Dhabi, showcasing its range of smart PV and energy storage solutions to combat the challenges presented by a desert environment.

Among projects already delivered is Saudi Arabia’s Jubail 3A desalination plant,  the country’s first such large-scale facility to use PV as a supplementary power source, with Trina Solar’s Vertex N 700W modules powering the entire 45.5MW installed capacity. The project, which is now operational, is designed to cover 20% of the water plant’s daily energy usage while reducing annual carbon emissions by 60,000 tonnes.

Other highlights include Uzbekistan’s Navoi power station, critical to the growth of the country’s PV industry, where TrinaTracker, the project’s exclusive tracker provider, assisted in the building of the plant, supplying 2,618 sets of its unique Vanguard-2P trackers. The annual power generated supplies 31,000 local households and reduces annual carbon dioxide emissions by 150,000 tonnes.

Also of note is the 100MW Ulan Buh desert management, energy storage and PV project located in Alxa League, Inner Mongolia, home to the world’s fourth largest desert. Trina Vertex series modules were used throughout the project, ensuring a stable supply of electricity in the region. An additional 30MW/60MWh energy storage system, with a single-system capacity of more than 5MWh, has also significantly improved the power system’s regulating capability, flexibility and stability.
