February 12 (Renewables Now) - Chinese solar products maker JA Solar Holdings Co Ltd (NASDAQ:JASO) on Sunday said it has delivered 35 MW of photovoltaic (PV) modules for a portion of a 250-MW project in Israel.
The mono PERC modules are powering a solar plant within the 250-MW Ashalim park in the Negev desert, which will combine concentrating solar power (CSP) and PV technology. Once completed, the entire complex is expected to supply 2% of Israel’s electricity demand.
The companies behind the scheme are EDF EN Israel Ltd, the local unit of French group EDF Energies Nouvelles (EDF EN), and Israeli renewable energy project developer Clal Sun Ltd. JA Solar has been selected as equipment supplier for the 250-MW project, which it says will be the largest utility-scale power generation facility in Israel using its mono PERC technology.
The 35-MW solar plant was put on stream in December 2017. Germany’s Belectric Solar & Battery GmbH served as the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor.
