Key Takeaways

  • JinkoSolar says it has secure three separate solar module supply contracts in Cambodia
  • It will ship modules for a 60 MW and a 30 MW project in Krakor district of Pursat province while another 60 MW project will be located in Kampong Chhang region
  • The Chinese company will be supplying its Cheetah solar panels for the unidentified projects

JinkoSolar Co. Ltd. has secured three separate module supply contracts in Cambodia representing an aggregate value of 150 MW. All of these relate to its high efficiency Cheetah solar panels. The vertically integrated modules manufacturer claims 20% average module efficiency for its Cheetah solar panel series, emphasizing it generate higher power production and greater reliability in regions of high heat and humidity like Cambodia.

The Chinese company shared that two of the three ground mounted projects will have 60 MW and 30 MW capacity and will be located in Krakor district of Pursat province. The remaining 60 MW will come up in Kampong Chhnang region. JinkoSolar did not reveal the project or the developers, nor does it mention by when the shipments need to be delivered.

In Kampong Chhnang province, the Asian Development Bank (ADB) is supporting a 100 MW solar power park out of which 60 MW was tendered and attracted the lowest power purchase tariff of $0.03877 per kWh for a solar project in Southeast Asia back in September 2019. It was won by Prime Road Alternative Company Limited (see SE Asia’s ‘Lowest’ Solar Bid Of $0.0387/kWh In Cambodia).

Cambodia expects its electricity demand to increase from 1.5 GW today to 2.3 GW by 2020.

JinkoSolar previously supplied its Eagle crystalline modules for another 60 MW solar power projects in Kompong Speu province of Cambodia in October 2018 to local developer SchneiTec Group (see JinkoSolar Modules For 60 MW Cambodian PV Plant).  

By December 31, 2019, JinkoSolar claims to have secured 10 GW worth of orders for its Cheetah panels since the time it was officially launched in May 2018.
