BEIJING--1 Oct--PRNewswire/InfoQuest

JA Solar Holdings Co., Ltd., a world-leading manufacturer of high-performance photovoltaic products, announced that it had supplied all solar modules for Bangladesh's first large-scale solar power plant with an installed capacity of 28 MW.

The project is located in Teknaf and was successfully connected to the utility grid in September 2018. Given the frequent blackouts in the region, the construction of the solar power plant will help alleviate power shortages as the power generated from the plant can meet 80% of the electricity demand in the area. Meanwhile, the solar plant is expected to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 20,000 tons per year when compared with the diesel power plant of the same scale. The Bangladeshi government intends to generate 2,000 MW of electricity through solar power by 2021. This project is the first step for the government to implement its new energy plan, and is of great significance in the development of new energy in the country.

The project is near the largest river in the region, and is within 1km of the coast. Year-round hot, humid and windy climate as well as saline and alkaline soil result in stringent requirements for solar module performance. JA Solar's solar modules have passed rigorous long-term reliability and environmental adaptability tests, and have excellent resistance to PID attenuation, salt spray corrosion and wind pressure, and can maintain high-efficiency stable power output on a long-term basis. The project was constructed by Technaf Solartech Energy Limited (TSEL), a subsidiary of Joules Power. Nuher Latif Khan, Managing Director of TSEL, said, "JA Solar's modules have distinct advantages in electricity generation, and the electricity output generated from the solar power plant has gone far beyond our expectations."

Mr. Baofang Jin, President and CEO of JA Solar, said, "JA Solar will continue to focus on technological innovation and product quality improvement to meet the diverse needs of our global customer base and promote the development of renewable energy globally."
