Leading ‘Silicon Module Super League’ (SMSL) member JinkoSolar has supplied 3,700 ‘Eagle’ multicrystalline modules to the first 1MW utility-scale PV power plant in Armenia.
JinkoSolar said that the opening ceremony took place in November in the city of Talin in collaboration with Staubli, Enerparc and Sungrow and project developer, Arpi Solar. The plant has a PPA for 25 years.
The opening ceremony was well-attended by various leaders in Armenia, including the Prime Minister Mr. Karen Karapetyan, Minister of Territorial Administration and Development Mr. Davit Loqyan, Deputy Minister of Energy Infrastructures and Natural Resources Mr. Hayk Harutyunyan, Deputy Ambassador of German Federal Republic to Armenia Mr. Klaus Wendelberger, and General Secretary of the Energy Charter Secretariat Mr. Urban Rusnák.
"Talin-1 is at the moment the largest solar power plant in Armenia and can cover the energy demands of almost 400 families. With this we launch a procession of massive solar power plants in Armenia." the General Director of Arpi Solar company Mr. Hayk Chobanyan said, "We will start working on another larger power plant of 55 MW capacity in Masrik (Gegharkunik region) very soon. Such interest in solar energy can significantly improve the Armenian energy sector."
In mid-2017, the Armenia Ministry of Energy Infrastructure and Natural Resources announced that it has pre-qualified 10 companies for a 55MW solar tender.

Understanding bifacial’s true potential: technology innovation and technical bankability of bifacial
The deployment of bifacial PV technology is growing rapidly. It has proven to be the most effective solution to reduce levelised energy costs (LCOE) and increase the Investment Rate of Return (IRR) of PV systems, offering substantially improved energy yield compared to the use of standard mono-facial modules. Even though the concept is not new, it has been a niche technology for many years with uncertainties in predicting performance and optimizing installations. Today, bifacial technology is becoming mainstream, with capacity available at the multi-gigawatt scale and with corresponding global deployment of project pipelines. Join this webinar, presented by Andrea Viaro, as he discusses the award-winning Swan bifacial module with transparent backsheet from DuPont, its features, benefits and differences vs. standard glass-glass modules. Jinko Solar’s new bifacial technology innovations will also be highlighted, specifically covering profitability in deployment at utility-scale PV power plants. Andrea will be joined by Dr.Lars Podlowski who will give a comprehensive introduction to all aspects of bifacial PV technology, with a special focus on benefits and risks industry buyers and investors should pay attention to.
