Solar manufacturer Trina Solar has launched a new Vertex S+ rooftop PV module series using n-type i-TOPCon cells.

The company is offering two versions of the panel, including a monofacial module with a white backsheet and a bifacial module with a transparent backsheet. The monofacial module boasts up to 445Wp and reaches 22.3% efficiency, while the bifacial module features a front-side power of 435Wp at 21.8% efficiency.

By using the n-type i-TOPCon cells, the module can generate about 10% extra energy over 30 years compared to its p-type peers. Trina Solar added that n-type cells have a 50% lower initial degradation and an 11% lower annual power attenuation. Therefore, the product will have a higher energy yield over the module’s lifetime and improved reliability.

Both versions feature a surface area of just under two square meters and a black aluminium frame weighing 21.1kg. When it comes to installation, the products allow a variety of mounting methods, including short-side and long-side clamping, crossed beam, shared rail and slide-in mounting.

Trina Solar has started producing the new products in its Suqian factory. It provides a 25-year product warranty and a 30-year performance warranty.

Astronergy has introduced its latest module product series, ASTRO N7 and ASTRO N7s, both of which utilise rectangular wafers. ASTRO N7, based on the 210mm*182mm wafer, is specifically tailored for utility-scale systems. It features dimensions of 2382mm*1134mm and a 66-cell layout design that effectively lowers Voc and increases string size. This design feature significantly reduces tracker and cable costs, leading to a reduction in LCOE by 0.44% to 4.37% compared to 182mm-wafer TOPCon modules. Furthermore, ASTRO N7 incorporates advanced cell and module technologies such as laser-induced firing, super multi-busbar, light-redirecting film, and double-layer coating glass to enhance module power output and reliability. Join us to explore the latest advances in module technology and how they can improve module performance and learn about the economic advantage of rectangular-wafer modules and their benefits at a system level.
