Key Takeaways

  • JinkoSolar has secured a module supply deal for subsidy-free 300 MW Talasol Solar Project in Spain
  • Chosen by EPC contractor METKA EGN, JinkoSolar will supply its ultra-high efficiency Cheetah modules for the plant
  • Another Chinese module supplier Risen Energy is also supplying 148 MW of half-cut cell high efficiency monocrystalline modules to a large-scale project in Ukraine, after it was chosen by EPC firm PowerChina Guizhou Engineering Co., Ltd

JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. will supply its ultra-high efficiency Cheetah modules for the subsidy free 300 MW Talasol Solar Project in Spain. EPC contractor METKA EGN chose JinkoSolar modules to be used for the plant coming up within the municipality of Talaván, Cáceres in Spain. Financial terms were not disclosed.

In June 2019, JinkoSolar achieved 24.38% top conversion efficiency for its Cheetah solar cells, which was confirmed by the Chinese Academy of Sciences (see 24.38% Efficiency For JinkoSolar’s Cheetah Cells).

The 300 MW Talasol Solar Project is owned by Israel’s Ellomay Capital that sold a 49% stake to GSE 3 UK Limited and Fond-ICO Infraestructuras II FICC. Financial closure was achieved soon after (see Ellomay Financial Closure For 300 MW Talasol Project).

The Talasol project will create a benchmark in Europe in terms of competitively-priced and subsidy-free solar power. It is also one of the largest utility scale projects ever built in Europe and JinkoSolar is very proud to be a part of such a milestone,” said Frank Niendorf, General Manager of JinkoSolar Europe.

Risen modules for Ukraine project

Fellow Chinese module company Risen Energy has announced supplying half-cut cell high-efficiency monocrystalline modules to a 148 MW large-scale project in another European country, Ukraine.

The projects EPC contractor PowerChina Guizhou Engineering Co., Ltd. chose Risen Energy’s modules. Risen said it will supply 375 W half-cut cell monocrystalline and 380 W high-efficiency modules in September 2019 for the plant to be commercially operational by the end of 2019.

While Risen Energy has not identified the solar plant, it is likely to be the 148 MW Progressovka Solar Project being developed by Scatec Solar which started construction in June 2019 (see Scatec Solar Breaks Ground On 148 MW PV Project).

Risen Energy claims it will supply close to 1 GW of solar modules to various projects in Ukraine by the end of 2019. In February 2019, Risen signed a module supply agreement with DTEK Renewables for a 240 MW solar project in Dnipropetrovsk region (see Risen Modules For 240 MW Ukraine PV Project).
