PV module shipments hit 15,915 MW, slightly more than the figure recently posted by domestic rival JA Solar, to lift Trina to number three worldwide, behind Chinese peers Longi and Jinko.

More than 70% of the company’s revenue last year was generated outside China, with the EU accounting for 21% of income, the USA 20% and Japan 4%. In 2020, Trina launched its large size Vertex PV module series, based on 210mm wafers, with the products pushing typical panel power output to 600 W or more.

A Trina spokesperson told pv magazine last year’s impressive performance was due to “Trina’s continuous technical upgrade[s], popularization of [the] 210mm-based Vertex module, deep internationalization, and [the] support of business partners, which all help the company achieve sustainable increase[s], even in [the] hard time of 2020.”.
