Construction Starts on JinkoSolar’s New 11GW N-Type Factory

  • JinkoSolar has held a traditional ground-breaking ceremony to start the construction of its latest n-type solar cell and module production plant in Jianshan, Haining city.  
  • JinkoSolar will produce 11GW of n-type cell with average efficiency of 25%, which could be the world’s first 10GW-scale factory to mass produce solar cell of above 25% efficiency.
  • The new smart factory has the most advanced hardware, software, big data, and IT infrastructure needed to maintain high digitalized level of operation and management.

Once it is up and running, the Jianshan Phase II plant will have a production capacity of around 11GW of solar cell and 15GW of modules – This will help the company to meet the strong and ever-growing demand of its n-type Tiger Neo panels. This capacity will come online in Q4 2022.

Moving to a more advanced n-type Topcon technology results in improved performance and power density, enabling more installed capacity and higher production in given space as well as longer life and lower LCOE. According to JinkoSolar, Tiger Neo panels that adopt the Topcon technology can increase the annual yield by 3% to 6% compared to PERC panels, while reducing LCOE by 3.8% to 7.4%.

Dany Qian, VP of JinkoSolar said “N-type Topcon process would further expand its economic advantage and market penetration with enhanced performance, power, and yield.”

Green Building Africa promotes the need for net carbon zero buildings and cities in Africa. We are fiercely independent and encourage outlying thinkers to contribute to the #netcarbonzero movement. Climate change is upon us and now is the time to react in a more diverse and broader approach to sustainability in the built environment. We challenge architects, property developers, urban planners, renewable energy professionals and green building specialists. We also challenge the funding houses and regulators and the role they play in facilitating investment into green projects. Lastly, we explore and investigate new technology and real-time data to speed up the journey in realising a net carbon zero environment for our children.
