A 320MW hybrid hydro-solar power station in China's Qinghai Province will be partially supplied modules from JA Solar in September.
Two mega-sized projects are being built by CPI Huanghe Hydropower Development Co, a wholly-owned subsidiary of China Power Investment Corporation that includes what is claimed to be the world’s largest hybrid hydro-solar power station.
The two projects were said to be located in Gonghe County in Qinghai's Hainan Autonomous Prefecture, and have a capacity of 320MW and 200MW, respectively.
“These projects are the latest product of our successful partnership with CPI and a big win for JA Solar as we look to take advantage of increased installation activity in China,” said Baofang Jin, executive chairman and CEO of JA Solar. “Due to the harsh environment, quality was a key criterion for the projects, and the fact that JA Solar was selected from a wide pool of potential suppliers demonstrates the superior reliability and durability of our modules. We expect the quality of our modules to continue to be a significant advantage as we look to expand our footprint across key markets.”
The PV plants are designed to increase and smooth energy generation from the existing hydro electric plants.
JA Solar is supplying 96MW of modules for the projects, which are both expected to be completed by October.
