JA Solar Holdings Co. Ltd has revealed that it has supplied 100MW of modules to the first large-scale solar farm in Pakistan. The 500-acre solar farm is located within the Quaid-e-Azam Solar Park in Bahawalpur, Pakistan. Energy demand in the country has increased nearly eight per cent annually, resulting in about 6GW energy deficit.

The solar park aims to address the country's energy shortage and is a key project of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, an under-construction development program for energy and infrastructure projects to connect China to southern Pakistan and develop a new gateway for trade.

Punjab, the province in which the project is located, enjoys some of the highest solar irradiance in the world. With roughly 3,000 hours of sunlight each year, the region is highly suitable for PV power generation. This project is located in an arid region where temperatures reach up to 50°C during the summer. The extremely hot and dry climate demands the highest quality solar modules.

JA Solar supplied its modules under the supervision of PV Lab Germany GmbH, an authoritative third-party accredited laboratory that sets strict standards for raw material selection, manufacturing processes and quality inspection. JA Solar proved its reliability, high conversion efficiency and high power output by passing strict testing and shipping product on time. Tests included Electroluminescence Inspection and the 3xIEC Standard Thresher Test.
