Yingli Energy (China) a wholly owned subsidiary of Yingli Green Energy Holding Company Ltd. has completed a 50 megawatt (MW) “Top Runner” project in Datong City, Shanxi Province, China and connected it to the grid by the end of June 2016.

The project is located in the coal-mining subsidence areas in Datong, Shanxi Province, which is the first National Advanced PV Technology Demonstration Base. Yingli Energy (China) was selected to develop and construct the project in July last year.

 The project utilized Yingli’s TwinMAX 60 Cell bifacial series module that integrates company’s PANDA (n-type monocrystalline solar cell) technology. According to the company its modules offer efficiency of up to 18.8%.

The project is expected to generate over 80 GWh of electricity per year, which is enough to power approximately 37 thousand typical households and equivalents to offsetting over 50 thousand tonnes of carbon emission annually.

We are honored to complete the 50 MW ‘Top Runner’ project and utilize our TwinMAX bifacial series module in the project, which required a high standard for power output and quality,” said Liansheng Miao, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Yingli. “This demonstrates the strong competitiveness of our products and we strive to continue our commitment to the development of advanced PV products with the mission of making solar energy affordable and accessible for everyone.”
