Installed with 12556 pieces of Trina Solar 210 Vertex dual-glass modules, the 60 MW floating solar photovoltaic system on Tengeh Reservoir in Singapore has been recently connected into the grid, and is now in full commercial operation，becoming a global showcase of excellent performance and high reliability proven in this largest floating solar pv system in Singapore. The construction of this project was commenced in June 2020.
This project is expected to be in commercial operation for more than 25 years, and it marks a significant milestone in Singapore's renewable energy development. The floating solar PV system will generate 77,259,302/Kwh each year and will offset about 57,776.66 tons of carbon emissions annually – this makes Singapore one of the few countries in the world to achieve 100% green waterworks.
Based on Singapore's climate conditions and its strict environment protection policies, in order to maximize energy generation, minimize environmental and water quality impact, every component of the system was carefully designed and selected by the project owner and the EPC company. Trina Solar's 210 Vertex dual glass module is a perfect fit for this floating project with its high power generation and reliability in Singapore, hot and humid climate.
Trina Solar's 210 Vertex modules are manufactured based on 210mm big size silicon wafer and have leading advantages as the high power capacity, high efficiency, high reliability and high power generation. Installed with Trina Solar's 210 Vertex modules, the system can save the numbers of panels needed and, in the meantime, keep power generation increased. Thus, it will save the water surface. Fully certified on reliability, Trina Solar's 210 Vertex modules can also save construction cost of 0.04-0.07 CNY per watt, compared with 166 modules.
Floating PV system has very strict requirements on components' functionality, safety and reliability in the water environment. The owner of this project in Singapore significantly values Trina Solar 210 Vertex modules' bifacial and dual-glass design, highly reliable brand and world's renowned product quality assurance, all of which ensure the system durable enough to fulfil a service lifespan of 30 years.
"The application of Trina Solar's 210 Vertex modules in Singapore's floating project has been a successful showcase," commented Zhao Lei, project leader from Trina Solar China region,"after Singapore project, more and more country markets show confidence and recognition of the quality of Trina Solar's 210 Vertex modules, our brand has earned its wider reputation overseas."
Carried with the mission of Solar Energy For All, Trina Solar's 210 Vertex modules will continue to play a significant part in reaching carbon-zero future home and abroad.
