Trina Solar has shipped 30MW of its 210mm Vertex 670W modules to a fishery PV project in northern China.
The project, with a total installed capacity of 70MW, is located in Cangzhou’s Nandagang industrial park and will be exclusively equipped with Vertex 670W modules and fixed tilts. In setting up the project to service the local fisheries industry and maximize its efficiency, the owner, Concord New Energy, required modules combining high energy yield and reliability and, after careful evaluation, opted for Vertex.
Concord New Energy has previously selected Trina Vertex modules for a 112MW project in Dachaidan, Qinghai province.
Vertex modules are built to withstand harsh environmental conditions, including desert, uninhabited land, high altitude, strong winds, sand and significant extremes of temperature.
In an era of full grid parity, Vertex modules are an LCOE leader. According to a study conducted by Fraunhofer ISE in Germany, when fixed tilts are used, Vertex mono-facial 670W modules can reduce LCOE by up to 7.4%.
Once completed, the Nandagang fishery project will focus on underwater fish and shrimp breeding with photovoltaic cells installed above the water, simultaneously benefiting the local economy and ecosystem development.
