Trina Solar Limited announced that the photovoltaic manufacturer is providing 258MW monocrystalline PERC double glass modules to the private solar PV project in Vietnam. The power station, located in Phan Rang-Thap Cham, capital of Ninh Thuan Province, has received investment from leading Vietnamese investment firm Trung Nam Group. Construction is scheduled to be completed by June 30, 2019.
During the signing ceremony, an executive from Trung Nam Group said, "Given that it is the group's first PV power plant investment, Trung Nam was very careful in selecting a leader in technologies, products and raw materials as its supplier partner."
Yin Rongfang, vice president and head of global sales and marketing at Trina Solar, said, "We are honored to partner with Trung Nam in the integrated renewable power generation project that set new benchmarks in the industry in Vietnam, marking one further step in Trina Solar's commitment to emerging markets. With a deep understanding of the Vietnamese market, we have built a 1GW solar cell production facility in the country, in addition to several new projects under development."
He added that Trina Solar-branded products will become increasingly available in Vietnam, helping boost the company's sales in the APAC region.
Mr. Yin indicated that as a leading global module manufacturer, Trina Solar has built a strong overseas sales and operations team with products sold to over 100 countries and regions across the world. By the end of 2017, the company's accumulated shipments totaled 32GW, ranking the firm the first among module manufacturers worldwide.
Mr. Yin said, "In addition to the continuous growth in Europe, among other traditional markets, our products have been gaining momentum and increasing popularity in the Middle East, Latin America and APAC since the beginning of the year. With the continuing success in emerging markets, our orderbook has far exceeded expectations."
