JinkoSolar, a global solar photovoltaic company based in China, announced that it has supplied 5 MW of solar modules to TSK Electronica y Electricidad, S.A., for use in the Shagaya Renewables Park Solar PV Power Plant, the first integrated renewable project located in Kuwait
Kuwait’s Ministry Of Energy and Water owns this 10 MW Solar PV project made up of 5MW of thin film and 5 MW of PV modules. The project is expected to be completed by September 2016 and will generate over 9624 MWh of clean energy annually.
“We are pleased to join another successful project in a new emerging market with TSK, “commented Mr. Gener Miao, Vice President Global Sales and Marketing of JinkoSolar, “The Arab states of the Persian Gulf market is growing very fast. The Kuwaiti government is targeting to have solar energy account for 15% of total energy consumption by 2030, which is not an individual case there. We will leverage our industry-leading position and expertise to meet the growing needs of the region.”
