JSW USA Accuses Nucor, U.S. Steel, and Cleveland-Cliffs Of Group Boycott In Suit, Vows To End Their Illegal Cartel and Vindicate Rights of Steel Buyers and Steelworkers



HOUSTON, June 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — JSW Steel (USA) Inc. and JSW USA Steel Ohio, Inc. today announce the filing of a federal court lawsuit in the Southern District of Texas against three of the largest domestic steel companies, Nucor Corp., United States Steel Corp., and Cleveland-Cliffs, Inc., including its recent acquisition, AK Steel Holding Corp.  The lawsuit alleges that the defendant companies conspired to boycott and refused to supply plaintiffs with a critical feedstock (domestic semi-finished steel slab) beginning in 2018 and continuing until today. The plaintiffs allege that defendants’ cartel cost them hundreds of millions of dollars in lost profits, increased their expenses and caused them other damages, and also led to higher prices and significant harm to U.S. steel buyers and significantly fewer jobs for U.S. steelworkers. 

Parth Jindal, JSW Steel (USA) Board member, said that the defendants have long been the dominant U.S. steel companies and used and continue to use anticompetitive tactics against smaller producers like JSW to succeed at all costs.  He said, “We bought into the U.S. market a few years ago and made significant progress in improving our facilities and performance.  In 2018, we announced our intention to make substantial investments to further expand and upgrade our facilities. These companies derailed those plans, and so we file this suit today to respond assertively.  As we allege, they stated repeatedly that they could make semi-finished steel slab in the quantities and quality to meet our needs and that they were willing to sell it to us, but when we tried to get them to move forward, they dragged things out and made excuses.  We are now convinced that it was all for show and that, in reality, they never intended to make or sell steel slab to us.”

Board member John Hritz added, “We would have had a state-of-the art facility in Baytown, Texas up and running by now that would have literally set the standard for green steel production in this country and the world.  The project would have resulted in hundreds of good, secure jobs for the next few decades.  It would have resulted in billions of dollars in economic benefit in the state of Texas alone.  Our costs of production would have plummetted and our production would have increased dramatically, meaning U.S. customers would have had more environmentally sound steel products at much better prices. These defendants, who account for more than two-thirds of all U.S. steel production, would have faced stiffer competition.  That’s what they were afraid of, apparently, and we are convinced that is why they took the steps alleged in the Complaint.”  Group boycotts are illegal, Mr. Hritz explained, because they erode competition, raise consumer prices, and disadvantage law-abiding businesses like JSW that seek to compete on a level playing field.  “JSW, U.S. steel buyers, and steelworkers all bore the brunt of the defendants’ actions,” said Mr. Hritz.  “And who benefited?  Defendants.  They repeatedly announced record profits over the last few years.  We will not sit by and let their conduct stand.”

The plaintiffs’ Complaint is based upon the federal antitrust laws and Texas state laws as well.  It seeks treble damages, which are automatic under the federal antitrust laws, compensatory and exemplary damages, and attorneys’ fees and costs.  The plaintiffs are represented in the case by the law firm of Baker Botts L.L.P.

Solis-Wechselrichter versorgt erste CO2-neutrale BIPV-Tankstelle von Sinopec



NINGBO, China, 18. Juni 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Die erste klimaneutrale Tankstelle mit BIPV (gebäudeintegrierter Photovoltaik) des Energie-Großkonzerns Sinopec hat den Betrieb an der Liuhua-Tankstelle in Baise, Guangxi, China, aufgenommen.  Solis hatte im Juli 2020 eine eingehende Untersuchung mit Sinopec durchgeführt, um den leistungsstarken 255kW-Wechselrichter zu einem integralen Bestandteil des Projekts zu machen. Das Projekt gilt als Durchbruch für Sinopec bei der Anwendung der dezentralisierten Solarstromerzeugung und als erste CO2-neutrale Tankstelle, die von Sinopec in Guangxi gebaut und betrieben wird.

Eine BIPV-Lösung von LONGi ist ein integraler Bestandteil der Planung vor Baubeginn. Die Lösung bietet Vorteile wie integriertes Design/integrierte Konstruktion, ein geringes Strukturgewicht und reduzierten Materialeinsatz und verlängert die Lebensdauer der Tankstellenüberdachung von 5 bis 10 auf 25 Jahre, was der Lebensdauer des Solarstromerzeugungsmoduls entspricht.

Die jährliche Stromerzeugung dieses Projekts wird voraussichtlich bei 91.000 Kilowattstunden liegen. Mehr als 10.000 Kilowattstunden überschüssiger Strom werden in das Netz eingespeist, genug, um den jährlichen Strombedarf von 12,5 Haushalten zu decken.

Das Projekt wird 81,5 Tonnen CO2-Emissionen pro Jahr reduzieren, was ausreicht, um etwa 76 Tonnen CO2-Emissionen der Tankstelle pro Jahr auszugleichen, was die Tankstelle selbst CO2-neutral macht.

Für Solis wird der 110V-Wechselrichter als Flaggschiff-Produkt mit 380V Niederspannung (passend für das chinesische Stromnetz) für C&I überall „grüne Gebäude” unterstützen.

Neben dem maximalen Wirkungsgrad von bis zu 98,7 % verfügt der Wechselrichter über eine hohe Leistungsdichte von 100 PPT/MW. Die Erlöse aus der Stromerzeugung pro MW sind um rund 3,5 % höher. Die DC-seitige Konfiguration unterstützt bis zu 150 % Überdimensionierung und das wirtschaftliche und flexible Systemdesign erklärt die Beliebtheit des Wechselrichters bei den Kunden.

Funktionen wie ein AC-Überspannungsschutz vom Typ 1 (optional) und ein Brandschutzschalter (optional) reduzieren auch die Brandgefahr auf der DC-Seite. Die Überspannungs-Lastreduzierung und die Leckstrom-Unterdrückungstechnologie reduzieren Probleme der Abschaltung unter Überspannungsbedingungen und der Auslösung unter Kriechstrombedingungen und erhöhen die Sicherheit.

Sinopec baut 160  Photovoltaik-Kraftwerke in ganz China und plant im Rahmen seines „Fünfjahresplans” den Bau von 7000 dezentralen Solarkraftwerken.  Durch die Entwicklung von unterschiedlichen Modi der CO2-Neutralisierung wie kohlenstoffneutrale Wälder und Tankstellen wird Solis Sinopec dabei unterstützen, umweltfreundliche und saubere Tankstellen zu bauen.

600W+ PV industry chain crucial in helping achieve carbon goals, says Trina Solar head



CHANGZHOU, China, June 18, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — The high power 600W+ PV industry will play a critical role in helping China achieve its goals of achieving a CO2 emissions peak by 2030 and carbon neutrality by 2060, says Gao Jifan, honorary president of the China Photovoltaic Industry Association.

Gao, who is also chairman of Trina Solar, made the remarks in an address at the SNEC Expo in Shanghai, in early June.

“The key to accomplishing the goal of carbon neutrality lies in giving precedence to wind and PV power, while minimizing or even eradicating thermal power,” Gao said in his address at the expo, the world’s most influential and international solar trade fair.

Gao talked of market trends and the latest technological achievements and the way to carbon neutrality, and said new-energy industries are more important than ever before.

Renowned experts, academics, business leaders, heads of government and industry associations and other senior figures gathered to exchange views and share their experience and insight.

Talking of the historic opportunities for the PV industry Gao set out his vision for its growth.

“Industry coordination with mutual innovation and shared benefits will create a new, customer-centric industry ecosystem that will help achieve carbon neutrality,” he said.

The vision was already being realized, he said. Last year Trina Solar unveiled its 600W Vertex module series and strongly advocated deep end-to-end supply chain integration and innovation. The company led dozens of other companies to jointly found the 600W+ PV Open Innovation Ecological Alliance, which has taken the lead in promoting the high-quality growth of the 600W+ PV industry, Gao said.

The 600W+ PV industry chain drives technological innovation and harnesses the strengths of each segment while coordinating the supply chain, he said. It also promotes standardization and wards off potential risks from excessive overlapping investment in same-class technology as the industry is upgraded, he said.

The alliance now has 78 companies as members, covering the whole supply chain, including silicon wafers, cells, system integration processes and certification bodies. The aim is to restructure the supply chain into a new and complete ecosystem, Gao said,

“This opens new avenues for reducing LCOE and pushes the industry faster toward carbon neutrality both in China and worldwide.”

Trina Solar says it expects more rapid growth based on 600W+ advanced technology. Gao reiterated his vision, saying: “As the world leading PV and smart energy IoT total solutions provider, Trina Solar has now moved into the 3.0 age. Trina Solar is resolute in its mission of solar for all and will continue to do all it can to push for the creation of a new-energy, carbon-free world.”

About Trina Solar 

Founded in 1997, Trina Solar is the world leading PV and smart energy total solution provider. The company engages in PV products R&D, manufacture and sales; PV projects development, EPC, O&M; smart micro-grid and multi-energy complementary systems development and sales, as well as energy cloud-platform operation. In 2018, Trina Solar launched Energy IoT brand, established the Trina Energy IoT Industrial Development Alliance together with leading enterprises and research institutes in China and around the world, and founded the New Energy IoT Industrial Innovation Center. With these actions, Trina Solar is committed to working with its partners to build the energy IoT ecosystem and develop an innovation platform to explore New Energy IoT, as it strives to be a leader in global intelligent energy.
