JinkoSolar Holding's modules have successfully passed ammonia corrosion testing, which was performed by TÜV Rheinland at its Solar Energy Assessment Centre in Cologne, Germany. The testing inspected the resistance to ammonia on JinkoSolar’s six poly- or monosilicon PV modules using relative power measurements, insulation testing and visual inspections. The testing confirms that all six JinkoSolar modules will receive ammonia corrosion certification.
The company noted that high amounts of ammonia can be found in agricultural areas, such as livestock farms, which can damage the functionality of PV installations. In order to pass TÜV Rheinland’s testing, the modules had to stay within the maximum allowed power degradation of 5% along with meeting the minimum requirements for the insulation and wet leakage tests while sporting no major visual defects.
“Our goal is to manufacture PV modules of the highest quality,” said Kangping Chen, CEO of JinkoSolar. “Resistance to ammonia is a critical component of this goal. This certification represents another assurance for our customers that JinkoSolar modules have been held up to a variety of rigorous tests in harsh elements around the world. JinkoSolar takes great pride in providing premium quality products to our global customers.”
