During Intersolar, the German project developer and EPC service provider MaxSolar and Trina Solar, a leading global provider of smart energy systems, signed a contract for the further purchase of solar modules with a total capacity of 100 MW. The total volume of the contracts now amounts to 400 MW for 2023 alone, with the modules securing part of the realisation of MaxSolar's photovoltaic project pipeline in Germany and Austria for the second half of 2023
"As in previous years, Maxsolar is again relying on bifacial Vertex modules from Trina, which have already proven their worth in many projects," emphasises Christian Stang, Head of Procurement at MaxSolar.
Dr Philip Comberg, Board Member Maxsolar, said: "Jifan Gao and I have known each other for almost 20 years and I am very pleased that we were able to deepen the long-term cooperation between MaxSolar and Trina Solar with the conclusion of another supply contract at our personal meeting today."
"It was a particular pleasure for me that a personal meeting with Jifan Gao, the founder of Trina Solar, took place in the course of the trade fair in Munich. We are convinced that with Trina Solar we have a strong partner at our side. As an EPC and general contractor, we always want to offer the best quality in components and execution," says Christoph Strasser, CEO of MaxSolar GmbH.
Trina Solar already started deliveries for the 125MW project in Bundorf last year. Christoph Strasser emphasises that the project management in Bundorf is outstanding due to the reliable and cooperative collaboration as well as the strong personal commitment of the key account managers. Once completed, the Bundorf solar park will include more than 250,000 bifacial Vertex photovoltaic modules. These PV modules are designed to offer the lowest long-term cost of energy by increasing the output power and energy yield of the solar park. With a maximum output of more than 570W and high efficiency, the Vertex modules offer an ideal solution for optimised large-scale power plants in Germany. The double glass technology promotes the high reliability of the bifacial modules even under harsh weather conditions. Their design minimises back shading and thus avoids negative effects on performance.
Gonzalo de la Viña, President EMEA at Trina Solar, commented, "MaxSolar and Trina Solar have enjoyed a long and highly successful partnership. Over the years, both companies have grown very strongly together. It is very impressive that MaxSolar's annual volume has increased more than tenfold in the last five years - a development that we at Trina Solar are particularly pleased about. We will continue to drive the energy transition in Germany and Europe together in the future.
