Trina Solar Ltd has established the Trina Solar Centre For Excellence to ensure a high level of quality assurance and precision testing of its photovoltaic modules.

The centre is located at Trina Solar's headquarters in Changzhou, and covers approximately 7,200 square meters of indoor and outdoor testing space. It supports a comprehensive range of tests including product certification processes, material reliability tests for module products, highly accelerated stress tests and material evaluation and research.

The testing equipment includes a top-of-the-range impulse simulator, steady state simulator and state-of-the-art silicon material testing equipment. The centre also houses chambers which can assess the effects of damp heat, thermal cycle, humidity freeze, thermal shock and UV exposure, to ensure the capability of Trina Solar's modules to withstand prolonged exposure in extreme climate conditions. Equipment and testing procedures accord with the rigorous standards of UL1703, IEC61215 and IEC61730.

The operational features and scale of the centre enable Trina Solar to continuously perform in-house quality assessments which include a highly accelerated stress test to evaluate modules and material performance after certifications are received from independent product certification organisations.

"The launch of the Centre For Excellence reflects our commitment to producing the highest quality solar modules while ensuring excellent product performance over their lifetime," said Jifan Gao, Trina Solar's chairman and CEO. "With the operation of a world-class testing centre by our highly talented engineers, we can further accelerate the testing and the qualification of Trina Solar's modules and bring the latest solar technology and enhancements to our customers."
