One of the leading solar module makers JinkoSolar Holding announced that according to media reports, Hanwha Q Cells this week filed actions against Jinko in the US ITC, US District Court of Delaware, and Germany’s regional Düsseldorf court.

The company further added that the actions follow the rapid growth of solar energy in the US and German markets where Jinko has been successful.

“Based on Jinko’s preliminary analysis of Hanwha’s complaints and the asserted patents, the company believes that the complaints are without technical or legal merit. Jinko, therefore, categorically refutes Hanwha’s allegations,” the company said.

Jinko further said that “it is working closely with its legal counsel and technical advisors to vigorously defend against the claims made by Hanwha. The company is considering all legal avenues available, including petitioning for the invalidity of Hanwha’s alleged patents.”

“Jinko looks forward to prevailing in court. Jinko fully respects intellectual property rights and encourages healthy competition, but it will take legal action to defend itself, its clients, and its partners,” the company added.

However, the company does not expect any disruption to its normal operations arising from this matter. It has been allocating substantial resources to R&D over many years, and has broken world records for cell efficiency.

Meanwhile, Jinko claimed that it will strive to maintain its market leadership in solar module supply to the US and EU markets, providing its customers with high quality products and timely delivery.
