JA Solar Supplies Modules for the Largest PERC Bifacial Double-glass Solar Power Plant in South Korea
BEIJING, July 12, 2019 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/--

JA Solar Co., Ltd, a world-leading manufacturer of high-performance 
photovoltaic products, announced that it supplied all modules for the largest 
PERC bifacial double-glass solar power plant in South Korea. The project will 
significantly promote the application of PERC bifacial double-glass modules and 
the development of renewable energy in the South Korean market.

In December 2018, JA Solar became one of the first PV companies to obtain 
product certification from Korea Standards Association (KS) for its PERC 
bifacial double-glass module. The certification validates that JA Solar's 
products meet the national standards in South Korea, enhancing the company's 
competitiveness and brand recognition in the local market. JA Solar's PERC 
bifacial double-glass modules can further increase energy yield for the PV 
system and effectively drive down LCOE, providing customers in South Korea who 
focus on land cost reductions with more access to high-efficiency solar energy 

The project, located in Gangjin Gun, South Korea, includes two 2.4 MW power 
plants that were built in two phases. The first phase has been completed and 
successfully connected to the grid. The power plants use JA Solar's bifacial 
double-glass modules, which incorporate high-efficiency PERC bifacial cell 
technology and a double-glass module structure with a bifaciality factor of 70% 
and higher. The JA Solar bifacial double-glass modules have greater power 
generation capacity, better low-radiation performance and PID resistance 
performance. Additionally, they can be widely used in harsh environments (such 
as deserts, seaside, etc.) and under extreme weather conditions (including high 
temperature, high humidity, etc.). TUV Rheinland, an authoritative testing 
institution, has verified that the energy yield of JA Solar's PERC bifacial 
double-glass module is 10.5% higher than that of conventional mono modules, 
which can effectively guarantee the reliability of the power plant system and 
the return on investment for customers.

Mr. Jin Baofang, President and CEO of JA Solar, said, "The South Korean market 
is very interested in high-efficiency solar modules. To meet our customers' 
growing demand, JA Solar will continue to focus on the R&D and production of 
high-performance PV modules. Our branch office in South Korea is also committed 
to providing excellent service to meet local customer needs, further expanding 
our presence, and contributing to the development of solar industry in the
