CHANGZHOU, China, Sept. 3 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ — Trina Solar Limited (TSL; “Trina Solar” or the “Company”), a leading integrated manufacturer of solar photovoltaic products from the production of ingots, wafers and cells to the assembly of PV modules, today announced that it has launched the “Trina Solar Center For Excellence” to ensure a high level of quality assurance and precision testing of its PV modules.

The Center For Excellence, located at Trina Solar’s headquarters in Changzhou, covers an area of approximately 7,200 square meters of indoor and outdoor testing space. The Center For Excellence supports a comprehensive range of tests including product certification processes, material reliability tests for module products, highly accelerated stress tests and material evaluation and research.

The Center is equipped with advanced testing equipment and is comparable to recognized world-class independent testing centers. Its advanced testing equipment includes a top-of-the-range impulse simulator, steady state simulator and state-of-the-art silicon material testing equipment. The center also houses chambers which can assess the effects of damp heat, thermal cycle, humidity freeze, thermal shock and UV exposure, to ensure the capability of Trina Solar’s modules to withstand prolonged exposure in extreme climate conditions. Equipment and testing procedures accord with the rigorous standards of UL1703, IEC61215 and IEC61730.

The operational features and scale of the Center allow Trina Solar to continuously perform in-house quality assessments which include a Highly Accelerated Stress Test (HAST) to evaluate modules and material performance after certifications are received from independent product certification organizations.

“The launch of the Center For Excellence reflects our commitment to producing the highest quality solar modules while ensuring excellent product performance over their lifetime,” said Jifan Gao, Trina Solar’s Chairman and CEO. “With the operation of a world-class testing center by our highly talented engineers, we can further accelerate the testing and the qualification of Trina Solar’s modules and bring the latest solar technology and enhancements to our customers.”
