CHANGZHOU, China, July 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Trina Solar Limited (NYSE:TSL) ("Trina Solar" or "the Company"), a global leader in photovoltaic modules, solutions and services, announced today that it has recently supplied 7 MW of photovoltaic modules to Ikaros Solar, a leading company dedicated to the installation of green solar energy systems, for an agricultural project in the UK.

Large-scale solar systems will be installed at Goose Willow Farm in the town of Abingdon in the UK, with the capacity to generate 7 MW using a total of 24,000 Trina Solar modules with power outputs of 290 Wp and 295 Wp.
