JinkoSolar has announced that it has been awarded a contract for 200MW of its flagship Tiger Neo modules by the China General Nuclear Power Group. The modules will be deployed at a CGN project in Inner Mongolia, aimed at leveraging solar PV to aid ecological recovery in the desert and Gobi regions.
The contract involves the supply of JinkoSolar’s latest n-type TOPCon based Tiger Neo modules, which have an average efficiency of up to 24%. In addition to delivering 15-20W more power than traditional modules of the same size, data released by CGN indicates that among major considerations behind the selection of Tiger Neo were the product’s lower temperature and degradation, the combination of which significantly enhances productivity in real world conditions.
“With more than 100GW of solar power systems around the world using our high-performance technology, we at JinkoSolar have both the experience and expertise to deliver reliable, cost-competitive solar power to serve the world’s growing energy demand, including domestically in China,”commented company VP Dany Qian. “China’s gigantic solar base programs open a market for n-type products, since they perfectly meet the demand of such projects in terms of developers’ technical specifications and economic KPIs. We are delighted to have this opportunity to partner with CGN to accelerate China’s transition to a robust clean energy economy, while at the same time playing a part in the ecological recovery of desert areas.”
