JA Solar bags 8MW UK order

Chinese PV manufacturer JA Solar will supply 7.8MW of its modules to British Solar Renewables (BSR) for use at a plant in southwest England.

Shipments of the JAM6R 270W P-Type modules in a 60-cell format are expected to be completed during the first quarter of 2014.

JA Solar said the latest order follows a shipment of 30MW modules to four ground-mounted projects of the UK-based developer in 2013.

Following its purchase of Ardenham Energy last year, BSR also installs financed or self-funded commercial roof-mounted PV and renewable heat projects, as well as having six large arrays under construction in the UK.
