January 13 (Renewables Now) - Jolywood Suzhou Sunwatt Co Ltd (SHE:300393) on Monday said it has supplied N-type bifacial solar modules for a 105-MW solar power plant in Oman under a contract with Japan-based Marubeni Corporation (TYO:8002).

The solar park, expected to be commissioned at the end of the month, is the first photovoltaic (PV) project in Oman and the biggest single-unit solar park using N-type bifacial modules in the world, according to the statement.

The modules' low-temperature coefficient means that they generate less heat and can withstand the desert's temperature fluctuations. Jolywood's panels also have higher anti-LeTID performance, minimising the amount of phototermic decay, which is an issue in locations with high temperatures. In addition, the modules' design reduces the impact of dust storms which are frequent in the area, Jolywood says.
