SHANGHAI, China, May 14, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- JA Solar Holdings Co., Ltd. (Nasdaq:JASO) ("JA Solar" or the "Company"), one of the world's largest manufacturers of high-performance solar power products, today unveiled its new Cypress module series, made using DuPont™ Solamet® photovoltaic metallization paste.

Built upon the success of JA Solar's existing Cypress cell technology, the new Cypress module series is the latest result of the Company's ongoing collaboration with DuPont Microcircuit Materials ("DuPont"). JA Solar's 6-inch monocrystalline modules in a 60-cell format now generate a maximum power output of 270W and a conversion efficiency of 16.51%; its 6-inch full-square monocrystalline modules in a 60-cell format generate a maximum power output of 280W and a conversion efficiency of 17.12%; and its 6-inch multicrystalline modules generate a maximum power output of 260W and a conversion efficiency of 15.90%. Cypress modules generate a power output approximately 10W above the industry average, and feature unparalleled reliability and power-induced degradation resistance.

"This step forward for our already industry-leading product offering yet again demonstrates JA Solar's steadfast commitment to pushing technological boundaries," said Yong Liu, CTO of JA Solar. "We are delighted to be cooperating with DuPont, a company with profound knowledge of materials science and technology that is committed to the long-term development of the solar industry. JA Solar's cutting-edge cell-manufacturing process, combined with DuPont's advanced metallization paste, were the keys to this extraordinary result. We look forward to continuing our collaboration and our efforts to develop future generations of solar products."

JA Solar's Cypress module series will be on display at this year's SNEC PV Power Expo to be held in Shanghai from May 14-16.
