JAS takes pride in making a difference for our customers. Therefore, when a customer reached out to our team needing to move photovoltaic modules for aircraft the JAS Energy Solutions team in Brazil created a customized solution for this unique shipment.

Photovoltaic modules provide a sustainable energy source for powering aircraft. The team, with the support of the JAS Logistics Agent in Fortaleza, began moving the modules in November 2022 and has since cleared over half of the shipment.

In total, there will be 57 shipments (615 containers), totaling 10,421 pallets of solar panels destined for new solar plants in the state of Ceará.  

Brazil added more than 9 GW of solar power in 2022, which is the best year in the history of the sector, with a growth of more than 80% compared to 2021. Today, Ceará is the second largest energy producer in Brazil.
