JA Solar’s Module Shipments to India Reach 1GW; Strengthens Regional Position

JA Solar Holdings Co., Ltd., one of the world’s largest manufacturers of high-performance solar power products, has announced that the company’s cumulative module shipments to India reached the milestone of 1GW of capacity. The 1GW of modules shipped to India represents electricity generation capacity of approximately 1.7billion kWh, which can reduce carbon emissions by 1.47 million tonnes annually. The company’s shipments to India in 2016 represent a significant market share in the region. JA Solar also believes that it held its leading market share position in the first quarter of 2017.

Over the past two years, JA Solar has expanded quickly in the Indian market by establishing strategic partnerships with local developers, EPC companies, independent power producers, and other important partners. The company believes that the excellent quality and high reliability of its modules is driving market acceptance by its partners and customers. It achieves this quality by leveraging its advanced production lines and extensive R&D laboratories. For instance, it is the first company in the world to apply double-printing technology to all cell manufacturing lines. JA Solar also achieved 100% mass-production of PID-resistant cells and double-85 anti-PID for all modules. In addition, its best-in-class components enable its modules to pass long-term reliability and environmental endurance tests. Its modules deliver outstanding performance in the various harsh environments that characterise the India market.

“India is emerging as one of the largest PV markets in the world, and JA Solar is well-positioned to continue to capture market share in the region. We remain focused on driving the R&D innovation that improves our products, which results in reliable modules and professional service to clients,” said Mr Baofang Jin, Chairman and CEO.

JA Solar is a world-leading manufacturer of silicon wafers, cells and modules used in solar PV systems. By the end of 2017, its production capacity for each of these categories is expected to reach 3 GW, 7 GW and 6 GW respectively. Since its founding, JA Solar has cumulative shipments of over 20 GW. The company does business in more than 92 countries around the world.

Enel Starts Construction Of Australia’s Largest Solar PV Project

The Bungala Solar One facility is part of the Bungala Solar PV Project and will have an installed capacity of 137.7 MW out of a total of more than 275 MW for the whole project, that will be able to produce 570 GWh per year. The facility will cover an area of approximately 300 hectares and will consist of about 420,000 polycrystalline PV modules mounted on single-axis tracker structures which will follow the Sun’s path from east to west; increasing the amount of energy produced by the plant, compared to PV modules with fixed structures. The overall Bungala Solar PV project is expected to become fully operational in early 2019.
