Chinese firm JA Solar has announced more agreements to supply its high-efficiency PV modules to British Solar Renewables to build UK solar projects. The firm will supply 7.8MW of its high-efficiency full square mono PV modules to renewables projects developer British Solar Renewables to build a solar farm in the southwest of the UK.

This latest cooperation follows JA Solar’s shipping 30MW of PV modules to four British Solar Renewables ground-mounted projects in 2013.

JA Solar said its ability to deliver high-efficiency solar products against tight deadlines was a key factor to the company winning the PV project. Shipments of the JAM6R 270W P-Type PV modules in a 60-cell format are expected to be completed during the first quarter of 2014.

Baofang Jin, executive chairman and CEO of JA Solar, said he expects the company to perform strongly in the UK solar market this year.

“We have built a strong partner base in the UK both in the residential and utility scale segments, and have seen growing demand for our high-efficiency products,” Jin said. “Going into 2014, we are positioned to perform strongly in the fast-growing UK market.”

Alastair Mounsey, UK manager at JA Solar, said of its latest PV project with British Solar Renewables: “Maximising returns on renewable investments requires not only lower sourcing costs, but also maximum lifetime yield. We’re confident the superior power output of our 270W modules, allied with their high durability, will ultimately generate higher returns for British Solar Renewables over the lifetime of this project.”

British Solar Renewables CEO Angus MacDonald, added: “British Solar Renewables strives to be best in class in our PV build process and so demands premium products from the most reliable suppliers. We are delighted to once again be cooperating with JA Solar, who have consistently demonstrated their technology and product-quality leadership.”

JA Solar will be exhibiting its 270W full square mono PV modules at Ecobuild London from 4 to 6 March. The company will also introduce its next generation 60-cell format RECIUM and PERCIUM high-efficiency cells and PV modules at the event.
