JinkoSolar completes key UAE supply order
Modules to be used for research on renewable energy in Ras al-Khaimah
China's JinkoSolar Holding has completed the supply of solar photovoltaic (PV) modules to CSEM-UAE, an independent, non-profit Swiss-UAE joint venture company for applied research.
The modules will be used for CSEM's Solar Outdoor Laboratory, an R&D and innovation center for renewable energy in Ras al-Khaimah, said the company in a statement.
The facility has been built to develop and test competitive solar energy solutions for the GCC market and has been operating since September.
JinkoSolar CEO Kangping Chen said: "As an emerging market, the GCC region with its substantial population serves as the ideal location to set examples for future solar projects. As one of the global leaders in the solar PV industry, we look forward to demonstrating the application of renewable energy technology in the Middle East region."
Hamid Kayal, the chief executive officer of CSEM-UAE said, "We are excited about co-operating with JinkoSolar. As one of the global leaders in this industry, JinkoSolar will help and demonstrate the off grid applications of solar power with completive cost per kWh."
"The UAE's government is committed to providing and developing clean energy. This project is going to be one of the best proofs of concept, demonstration and educational sites in the region," he stated,
