JinkoSolar Holding Co. Ltd. says it has been selected to work with engineering, procurement and construction partner Solea Renewables to deliver a PV installation for a chrome mine in South Africa's Limpopo province.
According to JinkoSolar, the installation will be the first off-grid utility-scale photovoltaic system in South Africa. The 1 MW plant will produce approximately 1.8 GWh of electricity annually and will effectively reduce the mine's daytime diesel dependency for the next 20 to 30 years. Â
The fully integrated turnkey PV system – designed, engineered and constructed by Solea Renewables – will use 4,170 polycrystalline modules from JinkoSolar.
