JA Solar supplies PV modules for 250MW solar project in Israel

CTBR Staff Writer Published 12 February 2018

Chinese photovoltaic (PV) module-maker JA Solar has completed the delivery of modules for 250MW Ashalim solar project in Israel.

The solar plant is located in the Negev Desert and is part of a 250MW pipeline of solar assets that combine solar thermal energy and photovoltaic energy.

It is being developed by French electric utility Electricite De France (EDF) and Israeli renewable energy company Clal Sun. JA Solar is supplying its Mono Passivated Emitter Rear Cell (PERC) modules for the project.

Currently, the project is being build by Belectric, an installer of solar power plants and providers of EPC and O&M services.

The solar project is expected to promote local renewable energy development significantly.

JA Solar vice president Cao Bo said: "We are pleased to partner with global giants such as EDF, Clal Sun and BELECTRIC to develop the solar market in Israel. JA Solar has the largest market share in Israel. We believe this cooperation demonstrates our value proposition and track record of technical innovation with high-performance solar modules.”

Recently, the company partnered with Hungary-based PV distributor Manitu Solar to expand its presence in Eastern European markets. As per the partnership agreement, Manitu Solar will distribute JA Solar’s PV modules in the region.

Founded in 2010, Manitu Solar is involved in delivering Tier-1 solar products. It claims to have developed an extensive distribution network with over 300 local downstream enterprises.
