The Chinese solar modules major Trina Solar Ltd is looking for partners in India. The company would like to partner with an Indian entity that has a pipeline of projects with it, Dr Haiyan Sun, Vice President, Asia Pacific/Middle East Area/Africa Area, Trina said.
Dr Sun was here as a speaker at ‘REaction 2012’ a conference of the renewable energy industry. Asked to comment on industry rumours that Trina might take the place of BP in the erstwhile Tata BP Solar, Dr Sun merely said that Trina was talking to many companies. Trina finds India to be a good and growing market for its product—mono and poly crystalline silicon modules.
The company is among the largest solar module manufacturers in the world, with a capacity to produce modules worth 2,400 MW, in China. He said that in India, Trina would be in a position to commit 17 per cent module efficiency. One MW of modules would produce around 1.7 million units of electricity, but of course, this would vary depending upon the location and design of the plant.
