Yingli Signs 146 MW EPC Contract with Jenner Renewables for 12 PV Plants in Chile

Boading, China and Madrid, Spain - Yingli Green Energy Holding Company Limited, one of the world's leading solar panel manufacturers, announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Yingli Green Energy Europe has signed an agreement with Jenner Renewables to provide Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) services for 12 ground-mounted PV plants in Chile, with the total capacity of 146 MW.

According to the agreement, the project is divided in 2 phases: Cluster 1 includes 4 PV plants and the construction began allready in February 2018 with expected operation by June 2018; Cluster 2, including 8 PV plants, will begin by the completion of Cluster 1. As the EPC contractor and exclusive solar panel supplier for the project, Yingli will supply its multicrystalline modules type YL325P-35B. Upon completion, each PV plant is anticipated to avoid 20.8 tons of CO2 per year.

"We are proud to partner with Jenner Renewables on such a significant project, which is the largest EPC project that Yingli undertook independently. In addition to focusing on our historical customers, such as EPC contractors and project developers, we are also seeking opportunities in some specific countries or cooperation with some specific partners to provide EPC services, which we believe could bring higher added value to our high quality products and therefore increase our service level," commented Mr. Liansheng Miao, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Yingli.
