JinkoSolar has announced that it has delivered to X-ELIO, a leading company dedicated to the development, construction and operation of photovoltaic plants, 950 MW of its ultra-high efficiency Cheetah 72 cells solar modules to be installed at different projects across Spain and Mexico.

Out of the 950 MW to be installed, 575 MW of the PV panels will be used in 12 project sites namely in Spain including Ciudad Real, Badajoz, Albacete, Murcia, Almería, Sevilla, Cartagena, Valencia and Segovia, and over 375 MW will be deployed in two different project locations in Mexico, with 118 MW and 257 MW destined for Veracruz and Navojoa, respectively.

“We are very pleased to have gained the trust and confidence of X-ELIO, one of the most professional and experienced developers and investors in the PV industry,” said Kangping Chen, CEO of JinkoSolar.

“Supplying their large-scale pipeline projects in Spain and Mexico with our ultra-high efficiency PERC Mono modules has allowed us to significantly expand our share of the Spanish and Mexican PV markets this year. It has always been our mission to be recognized as the most reliable global module supplier which is driven by our commitment to delivering high-quality products and exceptional customer service. It is this commitment that allows us to develop deep and long-lasting relationships with respected partners such as X-ELIO.”

In September, the firm had reported that it has signed a module supply contract with EPC contractor METKA EGN, for 300 MW of company’s ultra-high efficiency Cheetah modules to be installed at a large-scale ‘Talasol’ solar power plant in the municipality of Talaván, Cáceres, Spain.

The firms’ mono wafer production capacity is expected to expand to 18 GW once phase Ⅱ of the capacity expansion is complete. The full production of the additional 5 GW of production capacity is expected to begin during the second quarter of 2020.
