    Trina Solar to open 5-GW module factory in Texas

    September 12, 2023 - SeeNews Renewables


      September 12 (Renewables Now) - China’s Trina Solar Co Ltd (SHA:688599) on Monday laid out plans for the construction of a 5-GW photovoltaic (PV) module factory in Texas, entailing an investment of over USD 200 million (EUR 186.1m).

      The proposed investment includes both the property and the required equipment.

      Under the plan, the company will produce its Vertex modules at the new manufacturing base, using 210-mm large size wafers and polysilicon sourced from the US and Europe. The factory will be located in the city of Wilmer in Dallas County and will cover an area of more than one million square feet. It is expected to kick off operations next year and employ 1,500 people.

      “Trina’s goal in building this facility is to begin to create an ecosystem of American manufacturing that can serve the burgeoning US solar market,” said Steven Zhu, president of Trina Solar US.

      Trina Solar, which has shipped more than 150 GW of PV modules globally, is on the list of Chinese companies which the US Department of Commerce fined last month for circumventing import duties. The manufacturers were found to be conducting minor processing of their China-made PV components in Cambodia, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam before shipping them to the US in order to bypass the tariffs.
