SHANGHAI, March 30 /PRNewswire/ -- JA Solar Holdings Co., Ltd. (Nasdaq: JASO) ("JA Solar" or "JA"), one of the world's largest manufacturers of high-performance solar power products, today announced that its salt mist resistance PV modules passed the Double Standard IEC 61701 Salt Mist Corrosion Test (Severity Level 6) conducted by TUV Nord. JA Solar PV modules is the first in the industry to pass the test and JA will highlight this enhanced reliability at upcoming trade shows, such as Intersolar Beijing and the SNEC PV Power Expo in Shanghai.
Solar modules located in coastal areas are at greater risk of performance degradation and shorter lifespan due to the effect of salt mist, which can obscure glass and corrode components such as frames and junction boxes. JA Solar's line of modules is ruggedized to withstand harsh coastal weather and minimize power loss. In the TUV Nord testing, JA modules demonstrated power loss of less than 2%.
TUV Nord conducted the IEC 61701 Salt Mist Corrosion Test, Severity Level 6 on JA modules. This test is the most stringent in the industry, and features eight cycles of tests within 56 days. The Double Standard Class 6 test is twice as difficult, because it extends the duration to 112 days.
Mr. Jian Xie, President of JA Solar, commented, "The reliability, power output and lifespan of solar PV modules are sometimes challenged by the severe weather conditions in coastal areas. Achieving certification in this test again demonstrates the durability and high quality of JA Solar products. We take pride in our record of success in meeting the needs of our customers through continuous product innovation."
