JinkoSolar Becomes First Chinese PV Manufacturer to Receive IEC61345 Certification from TUV Rheinland

SHANGHAI, May 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. ("JinkoSolar" or the "Company") (JKS), a global leader in the PV industry, today announced that its modules have received IEC61345 certification from TUV Rheinland.

IEC61345 certification employs stricter testing criteria compared to IEC61215 certification, which currently serves as the industry standard UV test. It is mainly used to test modules' UV resistance under ultraviolet b ("UVB", 280nm~320nm), which requires exposure to exceed 7.5KWh/m2 on the top side and 0.75KWh/m2 on the reverse side. To meet these stringent standards, exposed modules on the top side should be over 137.8KWh/m2 under UVA+UVB (280nm~400nm).

"I'm proud that JinkoSolar is the first Chinese PV manufacturer to receive IEC61345 certification, which further demonstrates our technology strength and leading position in the industry," commented Mr. Kangping Chen, Chief Executive Officer of JinkoSolar. "We have always been committed to providing our clients with the highest quality and most reliable products while being at the forefront of solar technology."
