China-based photovoltaic products manufacturer JA Solar has completed the delivery of all solar modules required for Bangladesh’s first large-scale solar power plant.

Located in Teknaf, the 28MW power plant was successfully connected to the utility grid last month to help lower the frequent blackouts and power shortages in the region.

“The new solar power plant is capable of addressing 80% of the electricity demand in the area.”

JA Solar president and CEO Baofang Jin said: “JA Solar will continue to focus on technological innovation and product quality improvement to meet the diverse needs of our global customer base and promote the development of renewable energy globally.”

The new solar power plant is capable of addressing 80% of the electricity demand in the area.

Additionally, the project is expected to bring down carbon emission levels by 20,000t per year when compared with a same scale diesel power plant.

The government of Bangladesh has set a target to generate 2,000MW of electricity through solar power by 2021, and the solar plant is the first step towards achieving it.

The Chinese firm claims that its solar modules have been put through tough long-term reliability and environmental adaptability tests.

In addition, the modules have demonstrated resistance to PID attenuation, salt spray corrosion and are able to maintain stable power output on a long-term basis.

The solar power project was constructed by Technaf Solartech Energy (TSEL), a subsidiary of Joules Power.

TSEL managing director Nuher Latif Khan said: “JA Solar’s modules have distinct advantages in electricity generation, and the electricity output generated from the solar power plant has gone far beyond our expectations.”
