JinkoSolar has secured a 23MW module order for the Westland Solar Farm in Fresno County, California.
Engineering, procurement and construction firm Swinerton Builders and the finance firm Clenera completed the order, which will be shipped in the fourth quarter of 2013.
“Swinerton is excited to be working with the Westlands Solar Farm ownership and our leading technology partners, including Jinko Solar,” said George Hershman, division manager, Swinerton Renewable Energy.
“Having recently completed a similar 20MW single axis tracker project in PG&E territory, Swinerton looks forward to delivering another successful solar project in the Central Valley,” said Hershman.
Swinerton will use Jinko’s 300W 72 cells high-efficiency modules. Power from the Westlands project will be sold to the utility Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E).
“We are very excited to work with Swinerton Builders on this large scale project in Northern California,” said Nigel Cockroft, JinkoSolar's US general manager.
“JinkoSolar is committed to providing excellent service and product to the US Solar Market through partnership with industry leaders such as Swinerton Builders,” he added.
