JinkoSolar has supplied PV modules to a major PV power plant project in Vietnam totalling 351MW, supporting the strong growth momentum seen by the company in Asia-Pacific region in 2018.
Leading ‘Solar Module Super League’ (SMSL) member, JinkoSolar has supplied PV modules to a major PV power plant project in Vietnam totalling 351MW, supporting the strong growth momentum seen by the company in Asia-Pacific region in 2018.
The SMSL said that it had already supplied the 351MW module order to Power Construction Corporation of China, which had installed the modules at the Hồng Phong solar PV plant in Vietnam, said to be one of the largest PV projects in the APAC region to date. JinkoSolar did not say what module type(s) were used in the project.
Located in Hồng Phong, Bình Thuận Province, Phase 1A and 1B of the Project were recently integrated into the national grid and will generate an estimated annual supply of 520 million kWh of electricity from solar energy, saving 175,000 tons of standard coal and reducing carbon dioxide emissions by 439,000 tons annually.
Vietnam is potentially facing an electricity shortfall in the next few years, due to economic growth and has been switching to solar energy to meet demand as hydro-electric capacity expansions are limited.
JinkoSolar has guided its PV module shipments in 2019 to be in the range of 14 to 15GW.
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.
