November 18th, 2015 by  

One of the largest Chinese module manufacturers, JA Solar, announced that it has completed delivery of 92.5 MW solar PV modules in mid-October to be installed at the Philippines largest solar PV power project. 

The 132.5 MW project is being built in Cadiz City, in the Negros Occidental province of the Philippines, 92.5 MW of which will be equipped with JA Solar’s JAP6-72 310 W modules, including an initial on-site instalment of over 30 MW.

Negros Occidental has been described in local newspapers as the solar capital of the Philippines, consisting of 12 solar projects with an aggregate capacity of 580.5 MW. All projects are believed to have secured all the necessary approvals, and at time of writing, 45 MW projects have been installed in the province. The 132.5 MW is in its construction phase, however details on the projects progress and completion are currently not available.

Philippines is one of the rapidly emerging solar markets of South-east Asia, with several projects under construction. Recently, German firm Conergy has announced deal to construct two solar projects totalling 62 MW in Negros Occidental to further strengthen its presence as a market leader of solar engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) in Philippines.
