Trina Solar has set what looks to be a new world record for electricity produced by a multicrystalline solar PV module. A 156 x 156 millimeter, 60-cell module produced a peak 274 Watts of electrical power in laboratory testing, a result confirmed by TUV Rhineland.

The cell was manufactured using Trina’s new ‘Honey’ technology platform. The new ‘Honey’ modules are made up of 60 newly developed six-inch deep blue cells. Making use of improved back sheets, ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) cell encapsulation, string ribbon and coating glass, the new modules’ power output ranges between 245W and 260W and deliver a module conversion efficiency of up to 15.9%, according to the company.

A subsidiary of Changzhou Trina Solar Energy Co. Ltd. NYSE-listed Trina Solar (TSL) is a vertically integrated solar PV company that does everything from producing polysilicon ingots and wafers on through to manufacturing mono- and multi-crystalline silicon PV cells and modules.

Trina’s also improved the durability of its new modules, which have a “mechanical strength and ability to withstand high wind and large snow loads of 2400 and 5400 Pa respectively.” They come with a 25-year linear power warranty, a 10-year product warranty and guaranteed positive power tolerance of 0/+3%.

“We are very pleased to demonstrate our technology leadership with this new world record,” commented Jifan Gao, Trina Solar chairman and CEO. “This technological innovation will allow our customers to improve overall system costs and returns on investment.”
