CHANGZHOU, China, October 31, 2018 / PRNewswire / – Trina Solar Limited (“Trina Solar” or “company”), a leading provider of integrated solutions for solar energy, today announced the successful delivery of photovoltaic modules with a total capacity of 17 MW for Europe’s largest floating solar power plant.
The project “O’MEGA 1” is implemented by the leading French independent producer of energy from renewable sources Akuo Energy with the observance of specific restrictions stipulated by the French tender CRE4.1. It should be noted that it was the Trina Solar modules with a low carbon footprint that allowed the contractor to win the tender. After commissioning, the power plant, located in Piölenk municipality (Vaucluse department), will generate 100% of the energy needed to meet the needs of more than 4,700 households. The station, which occupies an area of 17 hectares, will reduce harmful emissions by approximately 11,100 tons of CO2 per year.
More than 46,000 Trina Solar TSM-DEG14.20 (II) single crystal PERC modules with a double glass coating in the version with a small carbon footprint form the basis of the O’MEGA 1 project. The DUOMAX M Plus module exhibits high output characteristics for solar utility farms. The advanced performance and energy efficiency of the DUOMAX M Plus model, which has the industry’s highest rating of 1500 V UL / IEC, guarantee maximum energy production in the most difficult environmental conditions. The robust, sealed design of two layers of high-quality solar glass protects solar cells from moisture throughout the life of the module, preventing energy losses due to PID (power reduction under the influence of negative voltage).
Akuo Energy President and Co-Founder Eric Scotto commented: “The O’MEGA 1 project will be the first for Akuo Energy: the first floating power plant in France; the first time the group provides access to project funding to individuals; and in general, the first a precedent for obtaining bank financing for a floating solar farm. Through this socially significant project we declare ourselves as a global player in the transition to alternative energy sources, and we hope to make this station an example to follow. We are proud the opportunity to join the ranks of outstanding authorities in the industry, making this project indicative and inspiring. “
