SHANGHAI, China, July 1, 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 announced that its multicrystalline PV modules have become the first to successfully pass a Thresher Test conducted by TÜV SÜD, one of the world's leading providers of testing and certification services. The Thresher Test is an accelerated test of a module's long-term performance and reliability. The test subjects modules to varied environmental conditions and power output levels, challenging their ability to perform safely and reliably. Based on conventional silicon PV module tests, the Thresher Test offers a detailed measure of degradation patterns, thus providing customers with a more accurate measure of product quality. "We're proud to be the first TÜV SÜD client to have passed this extremely challenging test, which demonstrates the superior performance of JA Solar's products," said Mr. Yong Liu, CTO of JA Solar. "JA Solar has always focused on producing the most reliable and efficient products on the market, and this has been key to maintaining our leading position."
