Trina Solar is set to supply 30MW of photovoltaic (PV) modules to Gestamp Solar for two projects located in South Africa’s Northern Cape Province, in the towns of Prieska and De Aar.
The company’s multicrystalline PC05 series modules were selected because of their 15 per cent efficiency, ability to generate up to 245W and high performance under low light conditions. It is also able to bear snow loads of up to 5,400Pa and wind loads of up to 2,400Pa.
The large-scale solar systems will have the capacity to generate 20MW and 10MW respectively. Under the agreement, deliveries will be made in the third quarter.
