SHANGHAI, Jan. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- JA Solar has announced that it has delivered over 100MWp of PV modules to Solarcentury, a leading UK solar developer and EPC, in 2014. The modules were mainly used in Solarcentury's ground-mounted solar projects and large commercial rooftops in the UK.
Approximately 49MWp of JA Solar's 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.
Mr. Baofang Jin, chairman and CEO of JA Solar, commented, "The UK market remains very successful for JA Solar and we have seen continued growth year after year. 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."
"Despite an impending renewables obligation (RO) limit to individual PV sites over 5MWp, we are still optimistic about the UK market in 2015," Mr. Jin added. "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."
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."
Solarcentury is one of the most respected solar companies in the world. Founded in 1998, we have been around since the early days of the solar industry and have been part of the evolution that has made PV the attractive investment it is today. We have put solar on a greater variety of sites than any other company in the industry, and have won multiple awards for product innovation.
