ET Energy along with its partner Northwest Electric Power Design Institute (NWEPDI) of China Power Engineering Consulting Group, have signed a turn-key EPC agreement with UiTM Solar Power to build a 61MWp utility solar power plant in Malaysia.
Located at Gambang in Kuantan, Pahang, over 220,000 solar modules will be installed on the 110 hectares land. This project was awarded in the first round of Large Scale Solar PV projects’ bidding program, and the 61MWp solar power plant is set to connect to the Grid by the end of 2018. The green electricity generated by the solar power plantwill be sufficient to satisfy the need of over 80,000 households.
