The PV and smart energy total solutions provider Trina Solar has been ranked second worldwide in its shipments of 8GW modules in the first quarter of 2022, according to financial statements of leading module manufacturers and several authoritative organizations.
This is consistent with findings by PV InfoLink, an authoritative PV analysis agency, and PV-Tech, a PV media outlet, which ranked global module shipments last year and had Trina Solar in second spot. Trina Solar said that it expects to hold its ranking by shipping modules totaling 43GW this year.
Shipments of 210 PV modules rose sharply last year, to 26GW, media reports say, and of these shipments Trina Solar contributed 16GW, putting it in first place.
By March cumulative shipments of 210 modules had soared to surpass 35GW shipments. With the PV industry leaping into the 600W+ era, industry chain collaboration has become smoother, inverters and trackers are fully compatible with 210 modules, 600W+ ecology is more mature, and the production capacity and shipment of 210 high power modules will continue to rise.
Trina Solar has won recognition for its product reliability and brand bankability many times. Trina Solar has been named Top Performer, as certified by PVEL, the leading independent PV test laboratory, for seven consecutive years.
Trina Solar has also scored 100 percent in the BNEF Bankability Survey, ranked as the top bankable module supplier for six consecutive years, and rated as a tier 1 manufacturer of BNEF PV modules in the fourth quarter last year.
