Trina Solar announced it has passed through the product certification test conducted by PV Evolution Labs (“PVEL”), and was rated as a top performer in the Module Reliability Score Card Report 2017 issued by DNV GL.
DNV GL PVEL Product Qualification Program (PQP) is an integrated one incorporating module reliability and power generation performance tests. As the typical destructive test, this certification test comprises 2-4x IEC thermal cycling test, damp heat test, UV irradiation test, dynamic mechanical load test, humidity-freeze test, PID attenuation and hot spot test, etc.
PVEL test is much more rigorous than some basic tests such as IEC and UL tests in terms of both test conditions and sequence, thus it continues a huge challenge for product reliability.
DNV GL test is extremely authoritative in the industry. Trina Solar has been taking an active part in the DNV GL test since 2014. In this portfolio of tests, most modules from Trina Solar have successfully passed the tests on product reliability based on their power attenuation rates which are all less than 3%.
Trina Solar conducts rigorous quality control and more than 175 individual laboratory tests to ensure a high level of QA. Since PV module is an investment-oriented product with a long life cycle up to 25 years, the choice of a reliable company becomes necessary.
Trina Solar’s being rated as a top module manufacturer after passing through all tightened PVEL tests with excellent results.
“The result demonstrates the high reliability and quality of our products, meanwhile, it enhances our products’ market competitiveness and help us earn clients trust,” said Zhou Wei, Quality VP of Trina Solar “looking into the further, we will continue to research and develop new products to meet customer’s demand according to different applied scenario. We aim to lead the PV industry to benefit all humanity.”
