PV distributor Menlo Electric has supplied Lithuania’s Ignitis Group with Jinko Solar modules for a Polish PV farm.
Menlo Electric’s mission is to facilitate energy transition by improving access to top-quality components. The distributor is one of the top three distributors of Jinko Solar and Risen Energy modules in Europe and the official distributor of JA Solar panels and Sungrow, SolarEdge and FoxESS inverters and batteries.
The first phase of the project utilised more than 30,000 Tiger Pro bifacial modules with 540 Wp power each from a world-leading Tier 1 manufacturer, Jinko Solar. This module fulfilled the demanding technical and project requirements such as efficiency, capacity and degradation rate. The installation completed in this phase will generate sufficient electricity to power 6,000 households with clean, solar energy.
The first phase of the project shall start commercial production in the second quarter of 2023, while the follow-up shall go live in the first quarter of 2024.
“It was important for the Ignitis Renewables project team, based on the results of the tender procedure, to select a company with an extensive experience in the industry, as Ignitis Group collaborates only with the most trustworthy professionals with an extensive experience in the renewables market,” said Paulius Kalmantas, communication partner from Ignitis.
Guaranteeing a quick delivery time was critical for the success of the project. It took approximately only 2 months from an indicative offer to the final deliveries.
“The contract for 17 megawatts (MW) meant assuring timely deliveries of more than 30,000 panels. In these times of disrupted supply chains in the photovoltaic industry, it required a lot of effort, but I am glad that the final result satisfied Ignitis. We will be happy to work with Ignitis again in the future,” commented Wojciech Borsucki, Sales Director North Poland, who led the project from Menlo Electric’s side.
