Further, the said solar power plant will be having a capacity of 110 MW and located in Kansai, Japan.

The company had entered the Japanese market in 2011, and since then it has gained a strong footprint in the local PV market with its mono and multi solar products.

Commenting on securing the project, Jin Baofang, chairman of the board of directors and CEO of JA Solar, said that “as a country with a mature PV industry, Japanese customers have higher requirements for the quality and efficiency of solar products. Over the past nine years, JA Solar’s products have maintained high recognition in the Japanese market, thanks to their superior quality and performance.”

“Looking forward, we will continue to develop high-efficiency PV technologies to provide our global customers with better products,” added Baofang.

Moreover, this solar project is expected to connect to the grid by March 2022 and will generate 150 million kWh of electricity once operational. Also, it is likely to trim carbon dioxide emissions by 50,000 tons per year.

Meanwhile, the company’s total shipment of PV modules to Japan exceeded 4 GW and taking up over 10 per cent of the market share by the end of 2019.

Recently, the company has announced that Thailand’s 12.5 MW floating solar power plant, which utilised its high-efficiency PERC modules, was successfully connected to the grid. As the first large-scale floating photovoltaic power plant in Thailand, the completion of the project is of great significance to the development of local renewable energy.

The plant is constructed in an industrial reservoir, and its generated electricity is delivered to the customer’s manufacturing base via underground cables. The plant will become a solar park opening to the general public and visitors with a focus on promoting the development of local renewable energy after entering operation.
