Jolywood Sunwatt Co. Ltd., a supplier of solar back sheet and N-type bifacial solar cells, has been named the exclusive bifacial module supplier for the single-unit N-type solar power station in Oman, Middle East.
Jolywood has delivered 105 MW ac of solar power to the Marubeni Corporation's latest power station using its revolutionary N-type high efficiency bifacial solar cells and modules from June 2019. The power station will be connected to the grid in the end of January 2020.
With an innovative structure and high production quality, Jolywood's bifacial components offer superior energy efficiency, higher power generation and enhanced durability and reliability - all of which are uniquely suited for a solar power station in the energy-rich but highly unpredictable climates of the Middle East.
Due to its unique geography and extreme weather, the average operating temperature of solar components in the Middle East typically ranges between 50ºC - 70ºC, which is more than double the usual test standards of 25ºC. Through a low-temperature coefficient, the bifacial components generate less heat and can withstand the fluctuating temperatures of the desert.
The company's bifacial components also have higher anti-LeTID performance to minimise the amount of photothermic decay, a common issue faced by solar suppliers in locations with high operating temperatures.
In addition, the company's bifacial components have high-efficiency rear-surface passivation. With over 80% efficiency, the elements have enhanced energy conversion and can fully leverage Oman's energy-rich environment.
Simultaneously, the components are designed to withstand frequent dust storms in the area. The symmetrical structure, stability and flexibility of the design reduces the risk of cracks and damage, and bifacial technology has a larger surface area for a broader range of applications. The improved weak illumination response also allows for better power generation under low-lit conditions.
The project comes off the back of the successful grid connection of the Zonnepark Rilland in the Netherlands where Jolywood supplied over 11.75 MW of solar power.
