BEIJING, June 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- JA Solar Holdings Co., Ltd. (Nasdaq: JASO) ("JA Solar" or the "Company"), one of the world's largest manufacturers of high-performance solar power products, today announced that it established a presence in Brazil with the launch of its subsidiary JA Solar Brazil Ltda ("JA Solar Brazil").


JA Solar has operated in Brazil since 2015 and seen significant growth in the Distributed Generation (DG) market, which requires local support for customers' planning, logistics and international trade operations. With the establishment of JA Solar Brazil, the Company can provide customers with timely logistics support and customized services, further capturing incremental business opportunities in the region. In addition, the Brazil office will focus on consolidating partnerships with local and international energy companies, including Engie, Multi Aquecimento, Faro Energy and Enel.

The JA Solar Brazil office is expected to start operating in early July.

The Latin American market is an emerging market with strong growth potential in the coming years, and JA Solar is actively working to expand its presence in the region. In March 2017, the Company established its subsidiary JA Solar Mexico SA de CV ("JA Solar Mexico"), starting its geographic expansion into Latin America. Since then, the Company has worked on a number of utility-scale projects and collaborated with local distributors in Mexico.

Mr. Baofang Jin, Chairman and CEO of JA Solar, commented, "The launch of JA Solar Brazil will enhance our ability to serve our customers, strengthen our strategic partnerships in the region, and further increase brand awareness in Brazil as well as in the Latin American market. Our high-performance solar modules are well-recognized in the industry. We look forward to leveraging our strong reputation to introduce more high-quality products to our Latin American customers, which will help them to optimize their return on investment."

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
