JA Solar announces exclusive supply offer for 3.1 GW hybrid project in China
- Solar Module Super League (SMSL) member JA Solar is to provide every one of the PV modules to a 3.1 GW wind-solar-storage hybrid project in the Chinese city of Ulanqab, Inner Mongolia.
The 3.1 GW project, which JA Solar stated was the initial renewable plant in China to be integrated with a GWh-scale energy storage system, will consist of 2.8 GW of wind power, 300MW of solar PV and also 1,760 MWh of energy storage.
The first phase of the project, with a total amount of 500MW for wind and solar PV, has actually currently been connected to the grid. For the 90MW PV portion of the project, JA Solar supplied all the modules.
JA Solar has provided its DeepBlue 3.0 modules to the project, which it said included a "variety of cost-saving as well as profit-increasing modern technologies that work in lowering the levelised price of power (LCOE)". The modules have actually likewise just recently been shipped to a large roof solar project in Vietnam.
The modules have gotten TÜV Rheinland's 'Energy Yield Simulation AQM Award' (Monofacial Mono Group) and also TÜV Nord's 'Outdoor Yield Performance Awards' (High-efficiency PERC Module Group).
According to half-yearly information from an energy yield examination carried out by JA Solar and TÜV Nord, DeepBlue 3.0's energy yield performance rated in the top rate of PERC modules in the PV market, JA Solar said in a media release.
By the end of 2021, cumulative international shipments of DeepBlue 3.0 had actually gone beyond 12GW, covering 86 nations, JA Solar stated.
"Moving on, JA Solar will keep focus on innovation study and item development, thereby remaining to supply clients with top quality products that add to the growth of the PV market and also the building of a low-carbon society," stated JA Solar vice head of state Li Dong.
In February, JA Solar revealed plans to aggressively increase its production capacity, introducing a brand-new RMB3.5 billion (US$ 552 million) investment program for brand-new facilities.
