JinkoSolar supplies 304kW modules to solar plant in South Africa

By Editor


Greentech Lead Asia: JinkoSolar has supplied 304kW of high-efficient solar PV modules to one of the largest roof-mounted PV Solar plants in South Africa.

Located in Johannesburg, South Africa, the project was developed by Soventix a German company that has been globally active in the development, construction and operation of solar power plants since 2010.

The project involves the provision of over 1,200 high-efficient photovoltaic JinkoSolar modules and will produce approximately 443,840 kWh of electricity per year and save emission by nearly 72 tons of CO2 annually.

For Jinko Solar and other Chinese solar makers, South Africa is a key market especially in the wake of anti-dumping rules from Western countries.

Arturo Herrero, chief marketing officer of JinkoSolar, said, “South Africa is one of our key markets where we have already achieved around 300 MW in contracts with our partners for the 1st and 2nd rounds of the public tenders and we expect to strengthen our position from current and future opportunities in the coming 3rd round of public tenders.”

JinkoSolar has product operations in Jiangxi and Zhejiang Provinces in China and sales and marketing offices in Shanghai and Beijing, China; Munich, Germany; Bologna, Italy; Zug, Switzerland; San Francisco, the United States; Queensland, Australia; Ontario, Canada; Singapore; Tokyo, Japan and Cape Town, South Africa.

JinkoSolar has built a vertically integrated solar product value chain with an integrated annual capacity of approximately 1.2 GW each for silicon ingots and wafers, solar PV cells and solar PV modules as of December 31, 2012.
