Key Takeaways

  • China’s JinkoSolar will supply its modules for an Australian solar project being developed by Chinese-Australian project developer Maoneng Group
  • JinkoSolar has been contracted by EPC company Decmil Australia to provide its HC Cheetah series modules for the project
  • Power generated by this plant on completion will be supplied to the University of New South Wales (UNSW), a world-leader in solar energy research, and AGL Energy for a period of 15 years
  • The New South Wales located plant is the ‘largest solar farm to have commenced construction in Australia this year’, and will also have large-scale battery storage array

JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. has been selected as the module supplier for Maoneng Group’s 255 MW Sunraysia Solar Farm. The project is coming up in New South Wales, Australia near Balranald for which the Chinese-Australian Developer Maoneng Group achieved financial closure in October 2018 (see Financial Closure For 255 MW Australian PV Project).

Selected by the project’s EPC contractor Decmil Australia Pty Ltd., JinkoSolar will be shipping its HC Cheetah series products to be used for the Sunraysia Solar Farm expected to be the ‘largest solar farm to have commenced construction in Australia this year’. JinkoSolar said the project will also have a large-scale battery storage array.

Power generated by this plant on completion will be supplied to the University of New South Wales (UNSW), a world-leader in solar energy research, and AGL Energy for a period of 15 years. For AGL, the project will act as one of the critical resource that will help fill the gap that will be created once it decides to replace its aging coal-fired Liddell power plant.

Maoneng’s Group Executive Director Morris Zhou said that his company will work with JinkoSolar for more future pipeline projects in Australia where it has a solar development pipeline of 500 MW, and also in Southeast Asia.
