Jinko Solar to supply 39 MW for US Projects

The module manufacturer Jinko Solar Holding Co., Ltd. has announced that it will supply high-efficiency modules with a total capacity of 39 MW for three solar projects in the United States. The projects are being developed by the engineering company AMEC.

The planned solar farms will be located in Marion County, Indiana. It is expected that the projects will be completed during the fourth quarter of 2013. The power will be generated using Jinko Solar’s 300 W modules, each with 72 cells. According to the company, these projects will be the largest solar farms in Indiana.

AMEC’s Vice President Tom Dodson commented: "We are pleased to have the opportunity to work with Jinko Solar. Their leading technology and excellent service in the US made them the ideal choice during the supplier selection process." Jinko Solar’s US General Manager Nigel Cockroft emphasizes AMEC’s  "outstanding reputation as one of the leading EPC service providers in the solar industry". According to Cockroft, the Indiana projects are one of Jinko Solar‘s largest deployments in the US market to date.
