Trina Solar and Low Carbon Ltd. Sign Gigawatt Multi-year Supply Framework Agreement

  • Next-generation solar PV modules destined for projects in the Netherlands and UK

Trina Solar Co., Ltd. a leading global PV and smart energy total solution provider, recently signed a multi-year framework agreement with the global renewable energy company Low Carbon Ltd. The framework agreement spans three years and comprises the supply of at least 1GW of Trina Solar PV modules for multiple Low Carbon projects throughout Europe. This agreement enables Trina and Low Carbon to continue to accelerate the deployment of renewable energy at scale, and will further strengthen Trina Solar’s leading position in the clean energy landscape in the region.

Setting up a framework agreement with Trina Solar provides planning security for project pipelines and will help accelerate the contracting process for future orders, with Low Carbon already securing 1GW of production volume covering its near-term project build-out plans.

For the first project deliveries to the Netherlands and the UK, Low Carbon selected next-generation Trina Solar Vertex modules. Recently launched, the Vertex N TSM-NEG19RC.20 modules are equipped with 210mm n-type i-TOPCon cell technology. This Vertex N series reaches a maximum power output of 605W, 40W higher than conventional n-type modules in the market. In addition, this dual-glass module increases bifaciality to 80% and delivers higher efficiency, lower degradation, and better energy yield for lower LCOE. The Vertex N module is highly compatible with trackers, offering more feasibility to utility-scale projects in the most complex of terrains.

On the other hand, the Vertex 670W+ series boasts an even bigger power footprint, with a maximum efficiency of 21.6%. Fitted with monocrystalline 210mm cells, the selected modules have a bifacial design and improved performance in lower light areas, making them a versatile option for Low Carbon’s upcoming projects.

Justin Thesiger, Director of Operations & Asset Management at Low Carbon, said, “The agreement with Trina Solar marks an important milestone for Low Carbon as we grow our international renewable energy portfolio. Their high bankability and ability to commit to high up-front delivery volumes made Trina Solar a natural choice.”
