Clenergy Tapped for Solar Power Plant in Pakistan
- Aug 12, 2014
In a significant step for one of the world’s largest solar power projects, Clenergy has been tapped as a consultant for Quaid-e-Azam Solar Energy Park, a 100 MW photovoltaic project underway in Bahawalpur, Pakistan. The Xiamen, China-based firm will provide mounting systems for a 40MW installment, according to a statement.
Pakistan’s first utility-scale solar plant, Quaid-e-Azam Solar Energy Park will help address a 6-gigawatt energy shortfall and an 8 percent annual rise in demand. The project is a joint venture of the government of Punjab, Bank of Punjab and Tebian Electric Apparatus. Its 100-megawatt first phase is scheduled to go online in December.
Clenergy designs, manufactures and distributes renewable energy products for the residential, commercial and utility markets. Its services include solar PV mounting products, inverters and power electronic equipment. The company has branch offices in Australia, Japan, the UK and the United States, and is also present in Malaysia with a regional office.
Clenergy will team on the project with TBEA SunOasis,a leading Chinese photovoltaic manufacturer and system integrator that is serving as the project’s lead engineering consultant, general contractor and operations manager. In the past 11 years, TBEA SunOasis has constructed off-grid and on-grid solar power stations for more than 3,000 units.
Clenergy and TBEA SunOasis have previously worked together on several large-scale solar farms in China’s northwest desert region since 2011. Quaid-e-Azam Solar Energy Park marks their first joint first mutual assignment outside China.
