SHANGHAI, CHINA: JinkoSolar Holding Co. Ltd announced that its modules have successfully passed an ammonia corrosion test. Conducted by international research firm TUV Rheinland at its Solar Energy Assessment Center in Cologne, Germany, the ammonia test results indicate that all six JinkoSolar modules tested should receive ammonia corrosion certification.
High amounts of ammonia in agricultural areas such as livestock farms can be detrimental to the functionality of PV installations. The ammonia corrosion test examined the resistance to ammonia of six types of JinkoSolar poly or mono-silicon PV modules using the following measurement criteria: relative power measurements, insulation testing and visual inspections. In order to pass, the maximum permissible power degradation of 5 percent must not be exceeded, the minimum requirements for insulation test and wet leakage test must be met and no major visual defects must be detected. All criteria were fulfilled.
"Our goal is to manufacture PV modules of the highest quality," said Kangping Chen, CEO of JinkoSolar. "Resistance to ammonia is a critical component of this goal. This certification represents another assurance for our customers that JinkoSolar modules have been held up to a variety of rigorous tests in harsh elements around the world. JinkoSolar takes great pride in providing premium quality products to our global customers."
Ulrike Therhaag, director of TUV Rheinland Greater China said: "We are pleased to work with JinkoSolar to successfully implement the test. The outcome demonstrates the premium quality of the company's modules and its superior resistance to corrosion."
