A 116-MW solar power plant in Terengganu on the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia recently announced operations, becoming the country's largest single-axis tracking PV project. Spanning an area of roughly 600 hectares, the solar plant will generate 220 million kWh of clean energy and power 200,000 local households annually. Meanwhile, it will reduce standard coal consumption by 80,000 tons and carbon emissions by 200,000 yearly.
Contracted by China's PowerChina Huadong Engineering Corporation Limited (Huadong Engineering), this solar plant selects JA Solar as the sole solar module supplier. It utilizes JA Solar's DeepBlue 3.0 bifacial double-glass modules, whose cumulative shipments worldwide have reached over 24 GW within two years since its launch in 2020.
Malaysia is one of the most successful oversea markets for JA Solar. The company has supplied high-efficiency modules for multiple renowned projects, including Malaysia's first floating PV power plant, bifacial-plus-trackers project, etc. Last year, the company's local PV market share exceeded 50%.
JA Solar continues to expand its footprint worldwide through constant technical research and innovation. Built upon its DeepBlue 3.0, JA Solar launched its first n-type PV module DeepBlue 4.0 X in May this year, with higher conversion efficiency, power output and reliability.
The company has also established a close partnership with Huadong Engineering in recent years. The accumulated capacity scale realized by the alliance has achieved more than 2 GW.
