CHINA: JinkoSolar Holding Co. Ltd announced that its solar PV modules have passed TUV Nord's Dust & Sand Certification Test.
TUV Nord's certification indicates that JinkoSolar's modules are suitable for installation in desert regions, where a shortage of rain and constant sandstorm scan cause solar PV plants to operate inefficiently.
TUV-Nord's Dust and Sand Certification Test simulates the typical erosion effect of heavy desert sandstorm situation. This endurance testing is critical to determine the reliability and longevity of solar PV panels in real world conditions along their lifetime.
"The considerable increase in the number of PV installations in desert regions makes it essential to develop solar modules that can withstand the strong impact of high-velocity sand and avoid the accumulation of dust on the surface of the modules. We pride ourselves on passing the rigorous testing procedures and our ability to produce solar PV panels that reliably deliver the best performance in real world conditions," said Kangping Chen, JinkoSolar's CEO.
