Chinese solar module manufacturer JinkoSolar Holding has delivered 95MW of monocrystalline solar panels to Vena Energy Australia for the Tailem Bend Solar Project in Adelaide.

With a capacity to generate 200,000MWh of renewable energy per year, Tailem Bend Solar Project has the ability to meet the electricity needs of 40,000 homes in the region.

ROA general manager Anita Li said: “We are honoured to have been chosen by Vena Energy Australia to supply solar panels for this project.

“JinkoSolar’s panels generate competitively priced energy, offer high levels of reliability and are proven to generate power consistently over the long-term.

“Supported by our industry-leading technology and quality, the panels installed at the Tailem Bend Solar Project are expected to generate power efficiently for a quarter-century or more.”

As one of the first large-scale solar projects to begin generating power in South Australia, the solar facility was connected to the grid earlier this year. JinkoSolar’s Cheetah technology and half-cell module configuration will also provide a significant boost in power generation.

Vena Energy Australia is an independent power producer with shareholders including Global Infrastructure Partners (GIP) and China Investment Corporation (CIC).

Vena Energy managing director Anil Nangia said: “JinkoSolar’s technology, performance, and reliability made them the ideal partner for this project.

“Their mature and proven technologies were developed with grid parity in mind and can be reliably integrated into their GW-level manufacturing capabilities. We look forward to deepening our relationship with JinkoSolar and working with them on more projects in the future.”
