1177 MW Sweihan solar project wins MESIA award

Sweihan solar project

JinkoSolar announced that its 1177 MW Sweihan project, co-developed by JinkoSolar, Marubeni, and the Abu Dhabi Electricity and Water Authority (ADEWA), was named the large scale solar project of the year by the Middle East Solar Industry Association (MESIA).

The award further demonstrates the significance of the Sweihan project. The winning project was selected by a panel of nine judges from across the industry who assessed the impact and innovativeness of large scale solar projects in the Middle East.

Once complete, the 1177 MW Sweihan project will be the world’s largest PV power plant. JinkoSolar has supplied solar modules that will assist in controlling the electricity generation cost. JinkoSolar modules allowed for the maximization of electricity output and decreased balance of system costs.

Xiande Li, chairman of JinkoSolar, said: “Fueled by the success of this project, we will continue to produce cutting-edge high efficiency modules to fulfill our vision of optimizing the world’s energy infrastructure with clean solar power.”
