PVTIME - JA Solar ("the Company"), a leading manufacturer of high-performance photovoltaic products, announced that the Thailand's 12.5MW floating power plant, which utilized 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 on an industrial reservoir, and its
generated electricity is delivered to 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.
Compared with traditional PV power plants, the floating PV power
plants are capable to effectively increase power generation efficiency
and prevent degradation by decreasing the usage of land, boosting the
unobstructed sunlight exposure, and lowering module and cable
temperatures. JA Solar's high-efficiency PERC bifacial double-glass
modules have passed rigorous long-term reliability and environmental
adaptability tests by proving its excellent resistance to PID
attenuation, salt corrosion, and wind load. Additionally, these modules
are able to maintain high-efficiency performance and stable power
output, providing a strong guarantee for optimizing the power generation
capacity of the system.
Jin Baofang, Chairman of the Board of Directors and CEO of JA Solar,
commented, "JA Solar will continue to focus on technological innovation
and product quality while meeting the diverse needs of our global
customers and promoting the development of renewable energy on a global
