Chinese solar manufacturer JinkoSolar has provided 1.1 million modules to solar developer Move On Energy’s 650MW solar park in Germany.

Located in the district of Leipzig, eastern Germany, the Witznitz Energy Park – which is currently the largest operational solar park in Europe – recently powered 605MW capacity with the remaining 45MW to be installed and connected by Summer.

For this project, JinkoSolar provided its tunnel oxide passivated contact (TOPCon) Tiger Neo modules, while Move On Energy built the project in a former opencast coal mine. A 15-year power purchase agreement (PPA) was secured last year with oil giant Shell Energy Europe.

Earlier this year, the company unveiled a new TOPCon Tiger Neo line – dubbed “Neo Green” – which it claims is produced using renewable energy.

Frank Niendorf, general manager of JinkoSolar Europe, said: “The Witznitz Solar Park, has already become a benchmark for renewable energy as one of the largest projects ever built in Germany and Europe using TOPCon modules.”

With the shipment of 650MW modules to Move On Energy’s PV plant in Germany, JinkoSolar continues to increase its shipments globally with a strong start in the first quarter of 2024. In the first three months of the year, the company shipped nearly 20GW of modules, a 6GW increase from the same period in 2022.

For the whole of 2023, the Chinese manufacturer shipped 78.5GW of solar modules and ended up as the top module supplier in 2023.

Last month, the Chinese solar manufacturer company supplied 100MW of its Tiger Neo modules to another European company, the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) firm Nyox Srl.

Astronergy has introduced its latest module product series, ASTRO N7 and ASTRO N7s, both of which utilise rectangular wafers. ASTRO N7, based on the 210mm*182mm wafer, is specifically tailored for utility-scale systems. It features dimensions of 2382mm*1134mm and a 66-cell layout design that effectively lowers Voc and increases string size. This design feature significantly reduces tracker and cable costs, leading to a reduction in LCOE by 0.44% to 4.37% compared to 182mm-wafer TOPCon modules. Furthermore, ASTRO N7 incorporates advanced cell and module technologies such as laser-induced firing, super multi-busbar, light-redirecting film, and double-layer coating glass to enhance module power output and reliability. Join us to explore the latest advances in module technology and how they can improve module performance and learn about the economic advantage of rectangular-wafer modules and their benefits at a system level.
