Yingli delivers its N-Type bifacial modules to PV power station in Oman

1 1Yingli Energy (China) has delivered 117MW of its PANDA N-type bifacial high-efficiency modules to Oman's largest bifacial PV power station in the Middle East, the Ibri-2 project

The project is invested and developed by ACWA Power, and POWERCHINA Huadong Engineering Corporation Ltd has been contracted as an EPC of the project.

The electricity generated by the project will be purchased by the Oman Power and Water Procurement Company (OPWP). With a total installed capacity of 575 MW, the Ibri-2 project will be the largest PV power station to use bifacial modules in the Middle East.

In recent years, N-type technology has become very competitive on the market due to its high efficiency and reliability and has also been favoured by major project developers. Oman has a tropical desert climate with a temperature of more than 40°C for more than half a year.

The N-type product has a low-temperature coefficient which increases power generation in high-temperature areas. N-type modules’ bifacial power generation characteristics are more advantageous and about 10% higher than those of P-type products, which can reduce the cost of electricity better.

Yingli started the R&D and production of its Panda N-type high-efficiency bifacial cells and modules in 2009. After more than ten years of development, the conversion efficiency of the Panda cell has reached 24.5% and is the world’s first product to be certified by CGC, UL, and TUV Rheinland. In 2020, Yingli's “Electrical Parameters Testing Method of Bifacial Power Generation Photovoltaic Modules” was successfully published, filling the gap in the domestic testing standards for bifacial power generation modules.
