Trina Solar Limited, a global leader in photovoltaic modules, solutions, and services, today announced it has supplied 6.9 MW of Trinasmart PV modules to Anesco's ground mounted solar farm in the UK that was commissioned in March 2015.
The installation incorporates patented Trinasmart technology, a complete solution that includes power optimisation to increase system performance by up to 20 per cent together with monitoring built into the module junction box. Trinasmart allows monitoring and controlling of the PV array at the module level rather than at inverter level compared to traditional modules. It can also be monitored and controlled in real time with a smart mobile device or PC. Furthermore, in cases of emergencies such as electrical failure and fire emergency, the modules can be totally deactivated with a single click to eliminate high voltages and secure the safety of the firefighters. Trinasmart is fully covered by Trina Solar's 10-year product warranty and 25-year linear performance warranty.
"Once again Anesco is leading the way in technological advances. This installation - on this scale - is an important milestone and underlines our commitment to pushing the boundaries of solar energy production," said by Adrian Pike, CEO of Anesco. "Our collaboration with Trina Solar demonstrates what can be achieved when likeminded organisations on a global scale work collaboratively to solve problems and create real opportunities within the electricity market."
"Trina Solar has built its business on providing high-quality innovative products and value-added services such as Trinasmart to the market, and on maintaining a position as a prudent and reliable partner," said by Ben Hill, president for Europe and Africa at Trina Solar. "As the market leader in the UK, it is hugely satisfying to be working alongside an organisation with the reputation of Anesco to deliver the largest optimised solar farm in Europe. It is this kind of innovation which keeps both our organisations ahead of the game which is vital in the fast changing solar PV sector."
