Hanwha Q Cells early this week filed actions against Jinko in the US ITC, US District Court of Delaware, and Germany’s regional Düsseldorf court. However, the Chinese solar manufacturing giant JinkoSolar has rejected the allegations made by Hanwa Q Cells and termed it baseless.
JinkoSolar said it believes that the complaints are without technical or legal merit, therefore it categorically refutes Hanwha’s allegations.
The company is working closely with its legal counsel and technical advisors to vigorously defend against the claims made by Hanwha. Jinko is also considering all legal avenues available, including petitioning for the invalidity of Hanwha’s alleged patents.
JinkoSolar looks forward to prevailing in court. Jinko fully respects intellectual property rights and encourages healthy competition, but it will take legal action to defend itself, its clients, and its partners said the company in a statement.
JinkoSolar in a statement said that it does not expect any disruption to its normal operations arising from this matter. JinkoSolar has been allocating substantial resources to R&D over many years, and has broken world records for cell efficiency.
