Adding to its US$1 billion, five-year financing deal with JinkoSolar, China Development Bank (CDB) has signed a US$58 million loan agreement with the module manufacturer to fund PV power plant projects in China.

Xiande Li, Chairman of JinkoSolar, said: "Securing long-term and stable source of capital, within this agreement, will reinforce our competitive status and already [leading] position in the Chinese market.”

The previously placed US$1 billion financing deal with CDB was said at the time to support JinkoSolar in expanding busines overseas including PV project development and EPC activities as well as support potential merger and acquisition strategies.

More recently, JinkoSolar secured US$128 million bond in China, said to be used for used for capital expenditure and working capital purposes.

The collapse into bankruptcy of Suntech Wuxi, the main operating arm of Suntech Power Holdings has sent shockwaves through Chinese banking and led to tighter credit risk assessments across the PV supply chain in China.

    Signs earlier in the year of the global industry entering a growth phase have now been confirmed beyond any doubt. Almost all the big-name suppliers have now announced some form of manufacturing capacity expansion, a trend that analysts agree will only gather pace as long as the levels of demand predicted over the next few years turn out to be correct.

  • Manufacturing The Solar Future: The 2014 Production Annual

    Although the past few years have proved extremely testing for PV equipment manufacturers, falling module prices have driven solar end-market demand to previously unseen levels. That demand is now starting to be felt by manufacturers, to the extent that leading companies are starting to talk about serious capacity expansions later this year and into 2015. This means that the next 12 months will be a critical period if companies throughout the supply chain are to take full advantage of the PV industry’s next growth phase.
