China’s JA Solar announced on Tuesday that it will supply its high-efficiency solar photovoltaic (PV) modules for the 560-megawatt (MW) Abydos Solar PV [Photovoltaic] independent Power Project (IPP) in Egypt.

UAE-based AMEA Power is the developer, owner, and operator of Kom Ombo Abydos, which is slated to become Egypt’s largest single PV project upon completion.

Construction of the project commenced in early January 2023 and is expected to be completed within 19 months, JA Solar said in a statement.

The company said it has entered into a partnership with AMEA Power and will join hands with a consortium consisting of China Energy Engineering Group, China Energy International Group, and Zhejiang Thermal Power Construction to provide an integrated solution for the AMEA’s wind and photovoltaics (PV) energy projects.

JA Solar will supply all DeepBlue 3.0 Pro high-efficiency modules for the project, the statement added.
