Module manufacturer JA Solar has partnered with UAE-based developer AMEA Power to supply modules to a 560MW solar PV project in Egypt.
The partnership extends the collaboration of both companies to provide an integrated solution for the gigawatt-scale solar and wind projects AMEA is working on in Egypt.
Among them is Egypt’s “largest” single PV project, once completed, with a capacity of 560MW which will be developed, owned and operated by AMEA Power.
This project is financed by the International Finance Corporation, Japan International Cooperation Agency and the Dutch Entrepreneurial Development Bank from which it received US$1.1 billion for the development of the 1GW renewables portfolio.
JA Solar will provide its DeepBlue 3.0 Pro modules – which uses the company’s proprietary Gapless Flexible Interconnection technology – for the Kom Ombo Abydos project, which started construction earlier in January and is expected to be completed within 19 months.
