JinkoSolar Secures Over 10.7 GW in Orders for 2019 with Cheetah Enabling Next-generation Cell Design
Shanghai, May 13, 2019-JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. (“JinkoSolar” or the “Company”) (NYSE: JKS), a reputable and one of the largest solar module manufacturers in the world, today announced that it has already secured over 10.7 GW in orders for 2019.
The signing of several large supply agreements in Vietnam, Mexico, Spain and a number of other markets has allowed JinkoSolar to secure in record time over 10.7 GW in orders for 2019. Overseas orders with fixed terms and conditions account for the vast majority of the secured orders. Installations in China are expected to pick up during the second half of 2019. This record-high 10.7GW order book consists primarily of high efficiency products like Cheetah, which highlights a clear trend taking place in global markets with demand shifting towards high-efficiency products.
The significant increase in the Company’s orders is a direct result of JinkoSolar’s long-term commitment towards developing partnerships with customers across the globe and growing demand for highly-efficient modules, including its flagship Cheetah which was launched last year and the latest Swan bifacial modules which are commercialized in 2019.
Jinkosolar’s Cheetah Solar Panel based on 158.75mm monocrystalline solar cell provides one of the industry’s most competitive solution and set the industry pace for an era of large size monocrystalline cell with a shape of full square. Meanwhile, by leveraging the new capabilities of Cheetah in generation, Jinkosolar Swan bifacial module delivers 5-25% more power over its flagship Cheetah module to reach 420-500 watt gained from the rear side.
Mr. Gener Miao, Chief Marketing Officer of JinkoSolar, commented “Leveraging our large geographic footprint, we were able to rapidly benefit from the accelerating shift towards high-efficiency mono panels and secure over 10.7GW orders for 2019 in record time. With grid parity approaching, we find ourselves in a very strong position in an otherwise highly competitive industry. Our strategic foresight to expand into high efficient product markets at an early stage is paying off. Jinko will continue to support our customers and partners with over 15GW capacity of industry leading facility.”
