JA Solar ships 35 MW of PV modules to Israel


Overall, the Chinese photovoltaic manufacturer is supplying modules to five plants in Israel, three of which are located in the Arava Desert, and two in the Negev Desert. While the Arava Power Company owns the plants, Siemens is acting as EPC contractor.

Overall, JA Solar has been contracted to supply 122,936 of its polycrystalline modules. While delivery began in January, the last of the modules are scheduled to be shipped this May.

"This deal marks an important milestone for JA Solar in Israel, which has a strong tradition of seeking alternative energy sources," stated JA Solar CEO, Baofang Jin. He added, "We will continue to expand our footprint in the Middle East."
