Trina Solar: Partnership for Development of thin-film solar modules
Toledo, Ohio - Xunlight Corporation ("Xunlight"), an industry leader in the design, development and manufacture of flexible and lightweight thin-film silicon solar modules, announced today that it has completed a 220 KW demonstration project utilizing its flexible solar panels, in partnership with Trina Solar Limited (NYSE: TSL) ("Trina Solar"), a leading vertically integrated manufacturer of solar photovoltaic (PV) products.
In this project, Xunlight, through its subsidiary in Kunshan, China, supplied Trina Solar with approximately 220 KW of the Company's lightweight and flexible thin film silicon solar modules. These modules were assembled in Xunlight's Kunshan facility using triple-junction thin film solar cells manufactured in its 25 MW roll-to-roll solar cell production line in Toledo, Ohio. A total of 750 Xunlight XR36 291 Watt modules were supplied to Trina Solar's System Engineering Service Team to apply on carports and bicycle shelters under the "Golden Sun" demonstration project. This is Xunlight's first major project in China.
"Working with a Tier 1 solar company of Trina Solar's stature in our very first project in China has been a rewarding experience," said Dr. Xunming Deng, Xunlight President and CEO. "Our team is very impressed with Trina Solar's quality control system."
"Flexible solar module has its advantages in the application of specific light structure environment. As part of the open testing platform of the China State Key Lab for PV Science & Technology at Trina Solar, we are applying and testing various types of solar technology. The cooperation with Xunlight is mutually beneficial," said Dr. Haiyan Sun, Head of Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa Region with Trina Solar.
