JinkoSolar Top Performer

JinkoSolar, one of the largest module manufacturers in the world, has announced that it was ranked as a top performer for the 5th consecutive year in the 2019 PV Module Reliability Scorecard, published by PVEL in partnership with DNV GL.

The PV Module Reliability Scorecard ranks PV modules and manufacturers using independent test data and is considered one of the most comprehensive publicly available comparison of PV module reliability test results.

As part of PVEL’s PQP (Product Quality Program) report, the results presented in the 2019 Scorecard were independently tested in the past 18 months. The top performers selected were modules that exhibited less than 2% degradation for the entirety of the test sequence. Being recognized as a top performer demonstrates a manufacturer’s commitment to product quality.

Kangping Chen, CEO of JinkoSolar, said, “I am extremely proud that JinkoSolar has once again been recognized with this award. It is a great compliment to the groundbreaking work we do and allows us to stand out as the preferred brand for customers, investors, and banks. Our R&D team is committed to revolutionising the industry using technological innovation and continues to set new industry benchmarks in these rigorous test regimes for quality checks. We believe that only reliable and highly efficient products will meet the global demand from our customers and generate value for our shareholders.”

In May, the Chinese manufacture received the Intersolar Award 2019 for its Swan bifacial module having DuPont’s transparent backsheet, under the category of ‘Photovoltaics’ (PV). The company won this award as the Jury found the features of it’s Swan bifacial module more significant and efficient.

Recently, the company announced that the maximum conversion efficiency of its cheetah size cells and N-type cells reached 24.38% and 24.58%, respectively, during testing conducted by the Chinese Academy of Sciences in March 2019. Additionally, the company has also revealed that the power generated by its 72 version high-efficiency monocrystalline module reached 469.3W during testing conducted by TÜV Rheinland, a respected third-party institution, in May 2019.
