The reason that ZNShine was able to stand out among many local competitors 
during the bidding is owing to its high-quality products, customized local 
services, as well as ZNShine's newly developed graphene-coating (nano 
technology) solar modules. Graphene-coating technology has self-cleaning 
property. According to the contract ,10% of the shipment will be 
graphene-coating solar panel and all deliveries will be made by October.

"Thanks to our winning of the BHEL project, we can introduce our 
graphene-coating modules to the global market. It is what we are most proud 
of," said Qian Li, Marketing Director at ZNShine Solar. "The Indian PV market 
there has been growing rapidly in recent years, we are targeting its potential 
and huge demand. As of June, our total shipments to India have reached to 
approximately 1GW, making ZNShine one of this market's major suppliers of PV 
modules. We are also planning to build with our local partner an integrated 
production line there that includes silicon wafer, cells and modules."

The graphene module is considered to be very important for India as the country 
suffers from dust storms, which may result in the burden of cleaning and 
maintenance at power plants with high labor costs. Nowadays, PV modules require 
manual work to clean the surface, this may cause PV cell crack or residual 
water stains on the module surface. ZNShine Solar's self-cleaning graphene 
modules will make the cleaning much easier while reducing the operational 
costs. In addition, graphene-coating modules maximize the light transmittance 
(94.3%), which increase the power output by 0.5% to 1%.

In addition to BHEL, ZNShine Solar has built long term relationship with a 
range of renowned companies in India, some deals will also include graphene 
self-cleaning modules.
