JA Solar Ships 100MWp of PV Modules to Solarcentury in 2014

ja-solar-logoLast year was a good one for JA Solar in the United Kingdom as the company delivered more than 100MWp of PV modules to Solarcentury.

Solarcentury, a leading UK solar developer and EPC, used the modules mainly in its ground-mounted solar projects and large commercial rooftops in the UK.

Approximately 49MWp of the JA Solar – headquartered in Shanghai, China – proprietary Full Square mono 275Wp modules will be deployed for the Southwick solar farm. Once connected to the grid in March 2015, the farm will become one of the largest solar farms ever built in the UK.

“The UK market remains very successful for JA Solar and we have seen continued growth year after year,” says JA Solar Chairman and CEO Baofang Jin “We are very proud of our relationship with Solarcentury, a leading developer of large-scale solar around the world and well respected for its high quality construction and operations. We can confidently say our product is in good hands.”

Frans van den Heuvel, CEO of Solarcentury, said, “It is important for us to co-operate with financially robust and reliable companies like JA Solar to ensure the success of our solar farm projects, particularly for our major sites and projects. We are pleased to be working with JA Solar for our UK builds; increasing the UK’s solar energy capacity also improves energy independence and reduces reliance on foreign imports.”

Jin added, “Despite an impending renewables obligation (RO) limit to individual PV sites over 5MWp, we are still optimistic about the UK market in 2015. The UK PV industry is extremely dynamic with strong fundamentals. We see the market maturing at a fast rate, and any gradual shift of focus towards rooftop solar also lends well to our strategy for higher powered products.”
