Trina Solar Limited has recently supplied 7MW of photovoltaic modules to Ikaros Solar, a leading company dedicated to the installation of green solar energy systems, for an agricultural project in the UK.
A large-scale solar system will be installed at Goose Willow Farm in the town of Abingdon in the UK, with the capacity to generate 7.02MW using a total of 24,000 Trina Solar modules with power outputs of 290Wp and 295Wp.
Mr Yves Devis, Group CEO of Ikaros Solar, said: "Trina Solar panels offer excellent efficiency, performance, and quality standards, and the company provides a wide range of solutions and services. Ikaros Solar is glad to begin this new collaboration with Trina Solar with this large project in the UK, and we hope this will be the first of many projects.”
Trina Solar's multicrystalline PC14 series modules were chosen because they are especially adapted to large scale projects, as well as for their 15.2 per cent efficiency, ability to generate up to 295W, and high performance under low light conditions. Furthermore, this Trina Solar module is able to bear snow loads of up to 5,400Pa and wind loads of up to 2,400Pa. All of Trina Solar's panels come with a 10-year workmanship warranty and a 25-year linear power output warranty.
Mr Ben Hill, President of Trina Solar Europe, said: “This first collaboration with Ikaros Solar is very important to us and we are looking forward for the continuation of our fruitful partnership. The proven quality of our products positions us as one of our customers’ brands of choice because we are internationally recognized for our track record in product quality and reliability.”
