JA Solar Supplies Modules for Malaysia's First Bifacial-Plus-Trackers Project

PVTIME - JA Solar recently announced that it supplied 43.8MW bifacial double-glass modules for the Malaysia's first solar project that combines bifacial double-glass modules with trackers. The project is expected to generate 74 million kWh of electricity per year once entering operation.

Invested by Halpro Engineering, a joint venture between a German
developer, EPC Greencells Group and their local partner Majulia, the
project belongs to Malaysia's second
round Large-Scale Solar (LSS) program. Combining high-efficiency
bifacial cell technology with strong double-glass structure, the
bifacial double-glass module has the power of generating electricity
from its backside, with power rating can reach more than 70% of that of
the front side. The module is capable to effectively improve the returns
of investments by enhancing  its power generation capacity, low
irradiation performance and PID resist performance, even under harsh
circumstances (such as desert, seaside,
etc.) and extreme weather conditions (including high temperature, high
humidity, etc.). Combining the high-efficiency module with the trackers,
the project is expected to get even higher energy yield and more
returns for the investor.

Jin Baofang, Chairman of the Board of Directors and CEO of JA Solar, said, "Having established a manufacturing base in Malaysia
in 2015 and supplied modules for several large-scale projects in the
local market, JA Solar has been actively increasing its presence in
promoting new technologies to help local customers reduce LCOE and raise
customers' returns. In the future, JA Solar will continue to promote
the application of advanced technologies to push the development of the
photovoltaic market in Malaysia and all other Southeast Asia countries."
