The first batch of Trina Solar 210mm cells and Vertex modules for the North American market have been produced at the company’s Vietnam production facility.
Trina Solar broke ground on its Thai Nguyen plant in December, and completed construction in five months. The factory has a capacity for 3 GW of cells and 4.5 GW of 210 modules. On May 15, the facility manufactured the first batch of 210mm Vertex 550W modules. Plans for Vertex 400W and 670W module production are now in the works for the plant, which can boost the annual capacity to an equivalent of 3.5 GW of 210 cells and 5 GW of 210 modules, respectively.
The fully automated plant represents one of the first overseas factories that manufactures 210 cells and 550 W modules.
Currently, Trina Solar runs multiple 210 Vertex cell and module factories in China and Vietnam. Altogether, they are expected to produce more than 50 GW of modules by the end of 2021.
