Solar back sheet supplier Jolywood Sunwatt Co has been named the exclusive bifacial module supplier for the world's largest single-unit N-type solar power station in Oman.
Chinese firm Jolywood has delivered 105MW of solar power to the Marubeni Corporation's latest plant.
The plant, which will be connected to the grid at the end of the month, is Oman's first photovoltaic project and supersedes the world's former largest N-type bifacial solar power station at China's National Power and Flood Control Base.
"We are honored our groundbreaking N-type bifacial solar modules will be used for this world-leading project," said JianWei Lin, chairman of Jolywood Group.
"This is the result of a decade of pioneering spirit in the green energy industry, as well as our relentless dedication to R&D and innovation to give the world high quality, high efficiency, and low LCOE N-type technology."
Through a low-temperature coefficient, Jolywood's bifacial components generate less heat and can withstand the fluctuating temperatures of the desert.
Units 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.
With over 80% efficiency, Jolywood's elements have enhanced energy conversion to 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 light conditions.
The project comes off the back of the successful grid connection of the Zonnepark Rilland in the Netherlands - Europe's biggest N-bifacial solar power plant - where Jolywood supplied over 11.75MW of solar power.
"Looking forward, Jolywood will continue its ambition to bring renewable energy to the world as part of China's Belt and Road initiative and is expected to hold over 55% market share on N-type solar cells by 2027." said Alfred Liu, oversea head of Jolywood.
