JinkoSolar secured the order from POWERCHINA Huadong Engineering, for the solar project, which is expected to become one of the largest solar power projects in Southeast Asia when completed.

The Dau Tieng solar project is located in Tay Ninh, southwest Vietnam and is being developed by Vietnam’s Xuan Cau and Thailand’s B.Grimm Power Public. POWERCHINA Huadong holds the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract for the project.

JinkoSolar global sales and marketing vice president Gener Miao said: “We stood out from our competition during the selection process by POWERCHINA Huadong as a result of our excellent products, high-quality services and strong brand recognition.

“With the reduction of solar costs, the competitiveness of solar energy is increasing, we look forward to working closely again with POWERCHINA to participate in more outstanding solar energy projects globally.”

In June, JinkoSolar signed a three year agreement with sPower to supply 1.43GW of its PV modules.

JinkoSolar claims to have supplied more than 800MW, comprising 2.5 million solar panels for sPower’s solar projects.

JinkoSolar had earlier achieved 23.95% efficiency for its P-type monocrystalline cell. This has been verified by the Photovoltaic and Wind Power Systems Quality Test Center at the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS).

The company employs 12,000 people across its 8 production facilities globally, 15 overseasubsidiaries in Japan, Singapore, India, Turkey, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, US, Canada,Mexico, Brazil, Chile, Australia and United Arab Emirates.
