Chinese photovoltaic (PV) manufacturer JinkoSolar has delivered its 300MW solar panels for a high-voltage demonstration plant in Qinghai province, China.
As part of the deal, JinkoSolar supplied its Tiger solar PV panels that have been designed to generate more output in real-world conditions such as partial shading and elevated temperatures.
JinkoSolar CEO Kangping Chen said: “As a top global module supplier, we are constantly innovating and improving the quality products and I am proud to have the opportunity to demonstrate their effectiveness by installing them for the first time on a ground-mounted utility project.
“Our Tiger panels are some of our most sought-after products due to their application of unique tiling ribbon technology, which removes any gaps between the cells, improving reliability and efficiency.”
In another development, JinkoSolar has delivered 950MW of its Cheetah 72-cell solar modules to PV plant developer X-ELIO.
The 950MW solar modules will be deployed by X-ELIO across two PV facilities located in Spain and Mexico.
Approximately 575MW of solar panels will be installed at 12 projects in Spain, including Ciudad Real, Badajoz, Albacete, Murcia, Almería, Sevilla, Cartagena, Valencia and Segovia. More than 375MW modules will also be installed at two projects in Veracruz and Navojoa, Mexico.
Chen added: “We are very pleased to have gained the trust and confidence of X-ELIO, one of the most professional and experienced developers and investors in the PV industry.
“Supplying their large-scale pipeline projects in Spain and Mexico with our ultra-high efficiency PERC Mono modules has allowed us to significantly expand our share of the Spanish and Mexican PV markets this year.”
