JA Solar supplies modules for the world’s largest floating solar power plant in China

The largest floating solar power plant in China was connected in May 2017, and has the capacity to provide most of the light and air conditioning to a nearby city. The mono double-glass modules used in the project were all manufactured by JA Solar.

JA Solar has announced that it has supplied modules for the world’s largest floating solar power plant. The 40 MW floating PV solar system is installed in a former flooded coal mining region in Huainan City, Anhui province, China. The largest floating solar power plant in China was connected in May 2017, and has the capacity to provide most of the light and air conditioning to a nearby city. The mono double-glass modules used in the project were all manufactured by JA Solar.

JA Solar notes that its modules are ideal for this type of project. The modules have passed long-term reliability and environmental endurance tests. The anti-PID performance and resistance against corrosion guarantee performance despite the humidity inherent in a floating array. Moreover, the 12-year warranty on materials and workmanship and the 30-year linear power warranty for the double-glass modules ensure that customers will enjoy a steady financial return said the company in a statment.

Floating PV is an exciting new emerging market, with the potential for rapid growth. Demand is expanding for floating PV, especially on islands, because the cost of water surface is generally lower than the cost of land. In addition, the evaporative cooling effect of water helps to reduce module temperature, which promotes module efficiency and prevents degradation.

JA Solar Chairman and CEO Baofang Jin said: “We are excited by the opportunity to contribute to such a prominent project. JA will continue its efforts to develop, innovative and improve product technology, which will enable us to participate in similar pioneering solar projects.”
