CHANGZHOU, China, Aug. 25, 2023/PRNewswire/ -- Trina Solar has once again expanded its international presence with the production of 210mm monocrystalline silicon wafers in Vietnam. The first wafers rolled off the production line at the factory in the city of Thai Nguyen, 80 kilometers north of Hanoi, on August 23. The factory will be able to produce 6.5 GW of wafers per year. With this new capability, Trina Solar will have greater flexibility in delivering its products around the world.
The green light for production was given on July 31, and the first 12-inch monocrystalline silicon rod rolled off the assembly line on August 4, heralding the production of the first wafers.
In addition to the new factory's 6.5 GW wafer production capacity, it has a cell capacity of 4 GW and a module capacity of 5 GW. Silicon wafer factory includes single crystal extraction, square silicon rod processing, silicon cutting and processing. The wafers produced are used primarily in cell and module production at Trina Solar's facilities in Vietnam and Thailand, including Trina Solar's supply to the US market.
The Vertex modules that Trina produces outside of China help meet the growing global demand for PV modules with high power, high efficiency, high reliability, high energy efficiency, and low LCOE. The Vietnam factory's production of silicon wafers and rods will ensure a steady supply of materials for the company's other module production sites abroad.
Committed to becoming a world leader in smart solar power solutions, Trina Solar is fulfilling its mission of "solar power for all" by not only making products more competitive but also creating job opportunities. Thai Nguyen Wafer Factory employs 700 resident people.
The company is also committed to the principles and practices of sustainable development, building a cohesive industrial ecosystem both at home and abroad. With the production of 210mm i-TOPCon n-type cells in Qinghai province starting in early August, Trina Solar integrated the entire process of the Qinghai factory and is accelerating the formation of an n-type integrated industrial design. In the n-type era, Trina Solar leads the industry with exceptional products in a collaborative ecosystem that spans the entire industry chain.
