JA Solar to Supply 96 MW of Modules to China Power Investment for Projects in China's Qinghai Province
The two projects are located in Gonghe County in Qinghai's Hainan Autonomous Prefecture, and have a capacity of 320 MW and 200 MW, respectively.
SHANGHAI, China, Sept. 10, 2013 -- JA Solar Holdings Co.,
manufacturers of high-performance solar power products, today announced that
it will supply 96 MW of solar modules to CPI Huanghe Hydropower Development
Co., Ltd., a wholly-owned subsidiary of China Power Investment Corporation
("CPI"), for use on two solar projects in China's Qinghai Province. Delivery
of the modules has already commenced and will be completed later this month.
The two projects are located in Gonghe County in Qinghai's Hainan Autonomous
Prefecture, and have a capacity of 320 MW and 200 MW, respectively. The 320
MW project is a hybrid hydro-solar power station that will work in
conjunction with the existing Longyangxia Hydro Power Station to increase
and smooth energy generation. Upon completion, the hybrid hydro-solar power
station will become the largest of its kind in the world.
The extreme temperatures in the region mean it is among the world's most
challenging environments for solar installations. The projects are expected
to commence commercial operations by October this year.
"These projects are the latest product of our successful partnership with
CPI and a big win for JA Solar as we look to take advantage of increased
installation activity in China," said Mr. Baofang Jin, executive chairman
and CEO of JA Solar. "Due to the harsh environment, quality was a key
criterion for the projects, and the fact that JA Solar was selected from a
wide pool of potential suppliers demonstrates the superior reliability and
durability of our modules. We expect the quality of our modules to continue
to be a significant advantage as we look to expand our footprint across key
