The installation of floating PV power plants ensures full utilization of idle water resources to provide green electricity while reducing water evaporation and protecting water resources, which is of great importance in water-deficient areas. With its capacity of 10.705MW, the Tel Yitzhak Reservoir floating PV power plant is completely installed with JA Solar DeepBlue 3.0 PV modules.

This product series has been well-received and widely recognized by global markets since its release in 2020, and its cumulative shipments had reached 24GW by the end of June 2022. In 2021, DeepBlue 3.0 became one of the first PV modules to obtain the KS high durability/eco-friendly certification in South Korea, thanks to its steady performance in high temperatures, high humidity, wet leakages, and mechanical load performance tests.

With its rich solar irradiance resources, the PV market in the Middle East and North Africaregion has been developing rapidly. In the GW-scale Israeli PV market, through cooperation with leading distributors and developers including S’energy and Ralco Energy, JA Solar has gained wide recognition with its outstanding product quality and service system, proven by its  market share of around 40% in local market in 2021.
