JinkoSolar Honored as Top Performer in Every Test by DNV GL
Shanghai, June 12, 2017 -- JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. ("JinkoSolar" or the "Company") (NYSE:JKS), a global leader in the photovoltaic (“PV”) industry, today announced that in PV Module Reliability Scorecard Report 2017 published by Det Norske Veritas & Germanischer Lloyd (DNV GL), JinkoSolar was honored as the “Top Performer” in every test due to its outstanding module reliability.
DNV GL, the world’s largest resource of independent energy experts and certification body, released PV Module Reliability Scorecard Report 2017. This PV module reliability test attracted 22 module manufactures from 10 countries/ areas to participate. It consists of five parts - thermal cycling test, damp heat test, humidity-freeze test, dynamic mechanical load test and PID test. According to the results of each test, better-performing modules would be honored as “Top Performer”. JinkoSolar is one of few manufacturers who were listed among theTop Performers in every test.
“While a 25-year performance warranty is standard in the industry, most PV module models, with a specific Bill of Materials, have actually been in use for less than a few years.” Said DNV GL’s Jenya Meydbray, Vice President, and the study’s lead author, “Since 2012, the DNV GL Product Qualification Program and the PV Module Reliability Scorecard’s findings have become a critical resource to an industry looking to better understand risk in a commercially reasonable timeframe.”
We are honored to have got excellent results in DNV GL's assessment and recognized by international authorities.” JinkoSolar’s Vice President Dany Qian said: “JinkoSolar has been aiming to promote the qualities of its products all the time. We will constantly improve our products and strive for excellence.”
