JinkoSolar has supplied PV modules to the India solar park in Maharashtra state

China solar modules totalling more than 25MW are being used to power the first private solar park in India. China PV module manufacturer JinkoSolar has supplied 25.8MW of high-efficient modules to the India solar park in Maharashtra state, which is the first of its kind in the BRIC country.

Located in Mandrup Village, Solapur District of Maharashtra state, the India solar project has been led by India firm Enrich Energy Pvt on a turnkey basis, which develops large-scale private solar parks. The news of JinkoSolar's PV modules being used to power the India solar park, builds on the company taking a key role in boosting PV power across the BRIC countries this year. In February, the China solar module manufacturer signed a three-year deal to deliver its PV panels for 600MW of China solar projects.

Ankit Kanchal, Enrich Energy Pvt commercial director, said of the China solar company's technology: "JinkoSolar's high-efficient polycrystalline modules were used in our first private PV solar park as they will help us to minimise the use of land and maximise the amount of reliable, emission-free solar power generated per dollar invested - which is one of our priorities. This is the first project of its kind in Maharashtra State."

High solar performer

JinkoSolar said its PV modules are ranked as one of the best in the world and have been recognised by PHOTON Lab test results, which has made them ideal for the India solar park.

Arturo Herrero, chief marketing officer of JinkoSolar, said: "Enrich Energy is one of our key strategic partners in India and we appreciate their efforts to pioneer the model of turnkey solutions for medium and large-scale solar investors.

"I believe JinkoSolar's industry-leading technology, reliable contractual execution and excellent local service is key to develop this partnership. Besides, the high efficiency and performance of our products is ideal for this project, since our solar module has been ranked as one of the best PV modules for outdoor use, which is repeatedly recognised by PHOTON Lab test results. We are honoured to have the opportunity to help to meet Enrich Energy's renewable energy goals."
