JinkoSolar Holding Co. Ltd. has announced its solar PV modules have passed TUV Nord's Dust and Sand Certification test. The certification indicates that the company's modules are suitable for installation in desert regions, where conditions can inflict considerable wear and tear on PV systems.
TUV Nord's Dust and Sand Certification test simulates the typical erosion effect of heavy desert sandstorms. JinkoSolar considers certification of its products for such extreme environments important for the company's future success.
‘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,’ says JinkoSolar CEO Kangping Chen.
