CADIZ CITY, Philippines--10 Nov--PRNewswire/InfoQuest

JA Solar Holdings Co., Ltd. (Nasdaq: JASO) ("JA Solar"), one of the world's largest manufacturers of high-performance solar power products, today announced that it completed a 92.5 MW shipment of modules in mid-October to be used in the largest solar photovoltaic (PV) power project ever built in the Philippines.

Located in Cadiz City of the Negros Occidental province, the facility is designed for a total capacity of 132.5MW, 92.5MW of which will be equipped with JA Solar's JAP6-72 310W modules, including an initial on-site installment of over 30MW. The Negros Occidental province is located near the equator and the facility is located approximately 3 km from the coastline. Maximum wind speeds at the facility have been clocked at 56 meters/second (125 mph). The strong winds, combined with humid and salty air conditions require superior performance solar modules resistant to potential induced degradation (PID), salt spray corrosion and wind pressure.

As the first manufacturer worldwide to have started mass production of 100% PID-resistant cells, JA Solar produces modules with industry-leading PID-resistance. In early August 2014, JA Solar announced that its high-efficiency polycrystalline RIECIUM module passed the 500-hour PID test administered by TUV SUD. The tests were conducted under extreme conditions of 85 degrees Celsius, 85% relative humidity and 1,000 volts of system voltage bias.

In March of this year, JA Solar's salt mist resistance PV modules passed the Double Standard IEC 61701 Salt Mist Corrosion Test (Severity Level 6) conducted by TUV NORD. Following 112 days of testing, JA modules demonstrated a power loss of less than 2%. In terms of its load performance, JA Solar's JAP6 modules are able to perform under high wind loads (2400Pa) and snow loads (5400Pa), ensuring long-term stability and power output efficiency.

Mr. Jian Xie, President of JA Solar, commented, "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. The superior PID-resistance, performance and reliability of JA Solar's modules ensure efficient and reliable power output in the hot and humid conditions of the Philippines."
