November 10 (SeeNews) - Chinese solar power products maker JA Solar Holdings Co Ltd (NASDAQ:JASO) said today it has concluded a 92.5-MW shipment of modules for a 132.5-MW solar photovoltaic (PV) project in the Philippines.

The development is located in Cadiz City, Negros Occidental province, and is the largest PV project in the country, JA Solar said in a press statement, without disclosing the name of the scheme or its developer. It was reported in June that local real estate firm Gregorio Araneta Inc was initiating construction of a 100-MW solar farm in Cadiz City.

"The module shipments for the solar project in Cadiz City mark JA Solar's first entry into the Philippine market, demonstrating our resolution and confidence in building a presence in emerging markets,” said Jian Xie, president of JA Solar.

The Chinese company noted it has supplied 92.5 MW of its JAP6-72 310W modules, including an initial on-site installment of more than 30 MW.
