Trina to promote Vertex modules In Australia: As Trina Solar gears up to participate in this month’s All Energy Australia online conference, the Chinese solar module manufacturer is all set to promote its high-power, high efficiency Vertex series modules in Australia, as well as its TrinaTracker. Trina Solar has a 670 W module that it is now working to be listed by Australia’s Clean Energy Council – a body that maintains a database of solar PV modules that comply with Australian standards. Bifacial modules coupled with trackers are very popular among those developing utility-scale projects. The company has just launched a training centre in Sydney to help industry professionals learn how to install trackers and be certified.
JinkoSolar obtains product carbon footprint verification from TUV Rheinland: JinkoSolar Holding announced that it has been granted the carbon footprint verification for its Tiger (163 mm cell based) and Tiger Pro (182 mm cell based) series of modules from German testing organization TUV Rheinland. This assessment is conducted by evaluating the overall environmental impact of these two series of modules through “cradle to grave” all life cycle stages – from raw material processing through to product production, transportation, waste management and final disposal. At the TaiyangNews virtual conference held last year, JinkoSolar had spoken in detail about its 182mm cell based modules (see JinkoSolar – Leo YU – TaiyangNews Virtual Conference on High Efficiency Solar Technologies)
HongYuan New Material 10 GW slicing project’s Phase III begins operation: Phase III of the 10 GW monocrystalline supporting slicing project of Hongyuan New Materials, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Shangji Automation, has begun operation, according to Photovoltaic Network News. This phase, which focuses on the slicing capacity of large size wafers such as 182 mm and 210 mm, saw the completion of the slicing process of its first 210 mm monocrystalline square bar. Last year, the second phase of a 8 GW mono silicon ingot pulling project of Hongyuan New Materials was ignited and put into production (see China PV News Snippets: CSI, Hongyuan, DeLi Glassware, Trina)
Risen 2021 3rd quarter report released: Announcing its third-quarter 2021 report, Chinese solar PV module producer Risen Energy stated the group’s revenue from the beginning of the year to the end of the reporting period was RMB 12.9 billion ($2.02 billion), up 19.93% year-on-year. Net profit attributable to shareholders of the listed company was RMB 354 million ($55.45 million), a decrease of 45.33% year-on-year.
Seraphim’s 4 GW production line put into operation: Solar products manufacturer Seraphim announced that the company’s 4 GW automated production line has been officially put into production. The project, located in the Economic Development Zone of Yingshang County, covers an area of about 350 mu, with a total investment of RMB 1.36 billion ($0.21 billion). Last year, Seraphim had launched a new solar module product calling it S4 half-cell series (see Seraphim Launches New Half-Cell Solar Modules)
