Silicon Module Super League (SMSL) member JinkoSolar will supply 255MW of its HC Cheetah series solar modules to Decmil Australia for the Sunraysia Solar Farm project in New South Wales developed by Australian-Chinese firm Maoneng Group.

The Sunraysia Solar Farm is expected to be the largest solar farm to have commenced construction in Australia this year and it will also include a large-scale battery storage system.

Maoneng has a development pipeline of 500MW of solar farms within Australia and sells energy and large-scale generation certificates (LGCs) to Australian businesses and governments through a combination of medium and long-term contracts. It reached financial close for the Sunraysia Solar Farm in October 2018.

The project forms part of AGL Energy's plan to replace the Liddell coal-fired generator. This project has 15-year power purchase agreements (PPAs) with UNSW Sydney and AGL. It is expected to generate around 400 construction jobs in Balranald.

“JinkoSolar has demonstrated professionalism as a tier one global manufacturer. We look forward to the cooperation with JinkoSolar not only on this Sunraysia Solar Farm over the next 14 months, but also on future pipeline projects in Australia and the greater South East Asia region,” said Morris Zhou, group executive director of Maoneng.
