JA Solar to supply modules for Egypt’s largest solar farm

JA Solar said it has joined a consortium to offer integrated solutions for gigawatt-scale wind and solar portfolios of renewable energy developer AMEA Power. In the partnership, JA Solar will supply its DeepBlue 3.0 Pro modules to a 560 MW project in Egypt, which is going to be the largest single-site solar farm in the country.

Apart from JA Solar, the consortium also includes China Energy Engineering Group, China Energy International Group, and Zhejiang Thermal Power Construction.

The project, called the Kom Ombo Abydos project, started construction in early January 2023 and is expected to be completed within 19 months.

The Kom Ombo Abydos PV project is developed, owned, and operated by AMEA Power, one of the largest developers in the UAE. Upon completion, the project will provide clean electricity to nearly one million Egyptian residents.

The DeepBlue 3.0 Pro modules used in the project are incorporated with JA Solar’s Gapless Flexible Interconnection (GFI) technology. With a module conversion efficiency of 21.7%, the series boasts “high conversion efficiency, excellent power generation capacity, and high reliability”, said JA Solar in a statement.

DeepBlue 3.0 Pro is a balance of quality, efficiency, and cost, offering customers the optimal levelized cost of energy (LCOE) and ensuring constant high power output over the life cycle of the PV plant.

Currently, fossil fuel dominates Egypt’s energy system with up to 90% in energy consumption. However, the country has made ambitious plans to increase the electricity supply from renewable energy to 42% by 2035.

Yang Aiqing, Rotating President of JA Solar, said, “it is an honor for JA Solar to participate in the construction of the Kom Ombo Abydos project to make PV energy affordable and accessible to local residents.”
