Chinese solar products manufacturer JA Solar Holdings has provided Mono PERC modules for the Ashalim 250MW solar project in Israel.
Located in the Negev Desert, the project is reported to be part of a 250MW pipeline of assets that combine solar thermal energy and photovoltaic (PV) energy.
It will be jointly developed by French electric utility company Electricite de France (EDF ) and Israeli renewable energy company Clal Sun , and is being built by procurement and construction (EPC) services provider Belectric.
Upon completion, the facility is expected to reduce contamination levels and promote local renewable energy development in Israel.
JA Solar vice-president Cao Bo said: “We are pleased to partner with global giants such as EDF, Clal Sun and BELECTRIC to develop the solar market in Israel.
“JA Solar has the largest market share in Israel. We believe this cooperation demonstrates our value proposition and track record of technical innovation with high-performance solar modules.
“We sincerely look forward to working with these industry giants to collaborate on new business opportunities globally and serving our global partners and customers by providing the highest-quality solar products and services.”
