JinkoSolar, one of the worlds’ top solar panel makers, along with state-run business Jinchuan Group are going to create a 200 megawatt (MW) photovoltaic solar farm in the Gansu province of China.
Located in the city of Jinchang, the new PV farm, which will be one of the largest independently run plants in Asia, will help support three other thermal power plants in the area.
The 2 RMB billion project will be on-line by June, 2013.

“We are very pleased to cooperate with Jinchuan Group, a reputed SOE with international competitiveness. We are confident that our cooperation will aid in the development of a green future for the region and a sustainable return on our investment,” he said.
