Chinese company Jetion Solar has supplied PV modules to a 50MW project in Minbu, northern Myanmar, said to be the first such large-scale project in the country.

The under-construction Minbu Solar Park will use Jetion Solar JT PAg polycrystalline solar modules, with China Triumph International Engineering (CTIEC) providing EPC services, and SMA supplying its inverters

The project covers an area of 81 hectares and is expected to be connected to the grid in June 2019. The annual power generation is expected to be 87 million kWh, which can power the equivalent of 20,000 Myanmar families.

“In the northern part of Myanmar where the PV project is located, the performance and stability of solar modules in extreme high-temperature conditions are very important,” said Zhao Honglei, senior vice president of Jetion Solar. “In the future, Jetion Solar will keep driving Myanmar energy structure reform with our expertise in photovoltaic R&D, production and EPC services, as well as our global service network and experience.”

Jetion Solar claims to have an annual production capacity of 2GW of cells and 2.5GW of modules.
