Order Focus: ENN Solar Energy to supply thin-film modules for CECEP’s utility-scale plant


ENN Solar Energy has won the bid to supply 5.7m2 tandem-junction silicon thin-film modules for a utility-scale photovoltaic power plant. Once complete, the project will be the largest thin-film photovoltaic project in China, and one of the largest in the world to utilize tandem-junction silicon thin-film technology.

The project is sponsored by the China Energy Conservation and Environmental Protection Group (CECEP), which plans to build a 5MW PV power plant in Inner Mongolia, China.

“We are very excited about having the opportunity to participate in this project, and it is an important first step for the collaboration between ENN and CECEP,” said Hongqiu Cai, CEO of ENN Solar Energy.

ENN recently achieved 9.2% stabilized aperture efficiency in its Applied SunFab thin-film production line. “ENN has demonstrated invaluable leadership in the drive to optimize the SunFab production line,” said Kirk Hasserjian, vice president and general manager of Applied Materials’ SunFab division. “Pairing the 5.7m2 SunFab modules with the integrated power station solutions enables a significant advantage for their customers who install large-scale projects and require solutions.”
