JinkoSolar to supply 50 MW of N-type TOPCon modules to REEPRO; Risen launches metal silicon & polysilicon projects; China Shuifa to build 120 MW PV project; JA Solar Group Standard released
JinkoSolar signs first 50 MW order of N-type TOPCon modules: Solar module manufacturer JinkoSolar announced that it has signed its first 50 MW order for its latest Tiger Neo N-type TOPCon modules with Vietnam EPC company, REEPRO Service and Manufacturing Company Limited. The first batch of the 50 MW of Tiger Neo 72HC N-type modules, which will be installed on the C&I rooftops, will arrive in Vietnam by the end of July 2022. At the TaiyangNews Virtual Intersolar Munich Review Conference held last month, JinkoSolar talked about a rooftop variant of N-type Tiger Neo module which it launched for the European market at Intersolar Europe 2022 (see Roberto Murgioni, JinkoSolar:A Rooftop Variant of Tiger Neo from the world’s largest TOPCon Producer)
Risen’s metal silicon & polysilicon projects launched: The 200,000-ton metal silicon and 150,000-ton high-purity polysilicon production lines built by Chinese solar panel maker Risen Energy’s subsidiary, Risen Energy (Baotou) Silicon Industry, has been officially launched, local media reports said. The construction will begin this month and the project is expected to be completed by June 2024. Spread across 2,500 mu, the project will be built in phases – the initial one will be for 100,000 tons of metal silicon and 50,000 tons of high-purity polysilicon. The later phase will be for 100,000 tons of metal silicon and 100,000 tons of high-purity polysilicon. Earlier this month, Risen said that it is planning Ningxia Xuning New Energy’s equity transfer (see China PV News Snippets)
China Shuifa Singyes Energy signs 120 MW PV deal: BIPV system developer and EPC, China Shuifa Singyes Energy Holding Limited, and the Dali County Government plan to develop a 120 MW photovoltaic project, locally. Once the project is completed, the annual power generation capacity can reach 150 million kWh, and the annual carbon dioxide emission can be reduced by 35,000 tons, the company said.
JA Solar drafted Group Standard released: Solar PV Panel Manufacturer JA Solar had drafted a Group Standard called Crystalline Silicon Photovoltaic Cell Electrode Peel Strength Test Method. This was officially released by Zhongguancun Materials Testing Technology Alliance (CSTM), and will be implemented by September this year. This Group Standard specifies the terms and definitions, equipment, sample, and environmental requirements, test methods, data processing and test reports of crystalline silicon photovoltaic cell electrode peel strength test methods. The Group Standard also guides in the fabrication and testing process of crystalline silicon solar cells.
