Trina Solar Launches Vertex S+ Series for Rooftop Solar Revolutionat Solar Show Africa 2023


Trina Solar , a global PV and smart energy total solution provider has launched their latest innovation, the Vertex S+ 445W+ n type dual-glass modules at the 2023 Solar Show Africa held in Johannesburg.

 Trina Solar manufactures, designs and deploys smart tracking systems that integrate smart tracking and monitoring solutions, while providing best-in-class services that go from project optimization consultancy to installation, commissioning, O&M and after sales services.

Gonzalo de la Vina, President EMEA, Trina Solar commented: “We are proud to introduce Trina Solar’s latest innovation, the Vertex S+ series, which is set to revolutionize solar systems on roofs. Our n type i-TOPCon module portfolio and the Vertex S+ series represent a significant advancement in solar technology, providing customers with high-performance and reliable solutions that meet their specific needs.”

 The Vertex S+ is available in two specifications. The monofacial NEG9R.28 comes with a white rear encapsulant for maximum output power, boasting up to 445W+ and reaching 22.3% efficiency. In contrast, the transparent NEG9RC.27 is the preferred option for high-end aesthetic applications, for example on residential rooftops where but the grids between cells would disappear optically.

 The new modules are specifically designed for rooftop PV systems, offering a combination of durability, performance, aesthetics, and peace of mind. That makes them an ideal choice for customers who prioritize both performance and appearance. With a 30-year power warranty, the Vertex S+ series is a reliable and durable solution for residential and commercial rooftop installations.

The company also showcased their latest innovations and featured an array of innovative products and solutions, including the Vertex N 605W+ and 695W+ modules, designed for commercial and industrial (C&I) and utility-scale projects, respectively.

 These modules are part of Trina Solar’s n type module portfolio, which is built on the 210mm product technology platform and n type i-TOPCon cell technology, resulting in superior performance and durability.

Trina Solar team presented at the event their utility scale ground-mounted solar solutions. The intelligent and innovative solution was comprised of the company’s newly optimized Vanguard 1P, the SuperTrack Smart Tracking Algorithm and Trina Smart Cloud Monitoring and Control system.

Trina Solar’s new generation of rooftop modules have been designed to provide maximum power output from limited space, trouble-free installation and operations over decades. This product line represents a significant advancement for PV arrays installed on both residential and commercial buildings and is expected to generate significant value for installers and system owners. The Vertex S+ series has already entered mass production, further accelerating the adoption of solar energy around the world.

“We are excited to showcase this ground-breaking product line at Solar Show Africa, the premier gathering of innovative minds from across the continent and around the world”, added de la Vina.

Trina Solar has ramped up its brand new, vertically integrated n type factory securing supply of n type i-TOPCon cells for modules of all sizes. The new Vertex S+ generation has already started rolling off its fully automated production lines.

Vertex S+ is the first rooftop module on the market to feature a robust dual-glass structure with light weight, replacing the plastic backsheet with a second layer of glass. As such, dual-glass designs are highly reliable and a perfect protection over decades, making this module structure extremely resistant to salt spray, acids, and alkalis..

PV systems built with Vertex S+  comes with an ultra-long 30-year performance warranty. Mechanical integrity is guaranteed for a full 25 years, rather than the 15-year industry standard. These extended warranties are proof of Trina Solar’s trust in its dual-glass technology and long-term performance of n type cells..

Trina Solar’s participation at the Solar Show Africa underscores the company’s dedication to providing innovative and high-quality solar solutions to customers across the globe. With their latest product portfolio and continued commitment to research and development, Trina Solar is poised to lead the way in the transition towards a net zero future.
