Leading ‘Solar Module Super League (SMSL) member, JinkoSolar said it expected the U.S. International Trade Commission Investigation into Q CELLS solar cell patent IP case (patent 215) to be dismissed in the next few weeks.

JinkoSolar said in a statement that in September 2019, the Administrative Law Judge (“ALJ”) in U.S. International Trade Commission Investigation No. 337-TA-1151 had interpreted the meaning and scope of the patent claims and would motion for summary determination granted.  The hearing was therefore stayed indefinitely, JinkoSolar said.

Kangping Chen, CEO of JinkoSolar stated; “From the beginning, we have said that Hanwha Q CELLS' complaints were without technical or legal merit, and were only meant to slow us down. We are very pleased with today's order, which validates our position. JinkoSolar believes healthy, fair competition is good for customers and we look forward to continuing to do what we do best: selling innovative, high-powered solar modules to our customers.”

Q CELLS had also sued REC Group and LONGi Solar with cases on hold in the US, Germany and Australia.
