JA Solar Holdings Co., Ltd. announced that it will supply 7.8MW of its high-efficiency full square mono solar modules to British Solar Renewables, a U.K.-based developer of large-scale renewable projects, for use on a 7.8MW solar farm in the south-western United Kingdom. Shipments of the JAM6R 270W P-Type modules in a 60-cell format are expected to be completed during the first quarter of 2014.
"JA Solar's ability to deliver high-efficiency solar products against tight deadlines was a key factor in us winning this project," said Mr. Baofang Jin, executive chairman and CEO of JA Solar. "We have built a strong partner base in the U.K., both in the residential and utility scale segments, and have seen growing demand for our high-efficiency products. Going into 2014, we are positioned to perform strongly in the fast-growing U.K. market."
British Solar Renewables CEO Angus MacDonald added, "British Solar Renewables strives to be best in class in our PV build process and so demands premium products from the most reliable suppliers. We are delighted to once again be cooperating with JA Solar, who have consistently demonstrated their technology and product-quality leadership."
Alastair Mounsey, UK manager at JA Solar, commented, "Maximizing returns on renewable investments requires not only lower sourcing costs but also maximum lifetime yield. We're confident the superior power output of our 270W modules, allied with their high durability, will ultimately generate higher returns for British Solar Renewables over the lifetime of this project."
This latest cooperation follows JA Solar's shipment of 30MW of modules to four British Solar Renewables ground-mounted projects in 2013. JA Solar will be exhibiting its 270W full square mono solar modules at Ecobuild London from March 4-6, where it will also introduce its next generation 60-cell format RECIUM and PERCIUM high-efficiency cells and modules.
