Jinko Solar also claims that this is also one of the most advanced smart factories, with the hardware, software, big data, and IT infrastructure needed to maintain the high digitalized level of operation and management.

Once it is up and running, the Jianshan Phase II plant will have a production capacity of around 11GW of solar cells and 15GW of modules. This will help the company to meet the strong and ever-growing demand for its n-type Tiger Neo panels. This capacity will come online in Q4 2022. Moving to a more advanced n-type Topcon technology results in improved performance and power density, enabling more installed capacity and higher production in a given space as well as longer life and lower LCOE.

According to Jinko Solar, Tiger Neo panels that adopt the Topcon technology can increase the annual yield by 3% to 6% compared to PERC panels, while reducing LCOE by 3.8% to 7.4%. In fact, following JinkoSolar, other Tier 1 players like Trina and JA Solar are also moving to Topcon, an enhanced version of PERC, reaching volume production in the second half of 2022.

Dany Qian, Vice President of Jinko Solar stated “N-type Topcon process would further expand its economic advantage and market penetration with enhanced performance, power, and yield.”

Recently, Jinko Solar also announced that its overseas plant in Malaysia is powered completely by renewable energy. That makes it the first overseas plant to be 100% renewable-powered.
