Clean energy investor and solar energy provider Clenergy has won a contract for 40MW of mounting systems for the 100MW flagship Quaid-e-Azam solar energy park in Pakistan.
The solar park will be located at Bahawalpur and Clenergy is cooperating with Chinese company TBEA SunOasis which is providing engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services for the project.
Clenergy is known globally for its PV-ezRack mounting system range which has been deployed in multiple utility-scale PV power projects around the world. The two companies have been collaborating in utility-scale solar projects since 2011 and most of the partnership’s large-scale installations in China’s northwest desert region utilise the Clenergy C-steel mounting system. The 40MW contract in Pakistan marks the partnership’s first cooperative project beyond Chinese borders.
“With its tailor-made mounting solutions, Clenergy provides ease of installation and cost savings in a robust and corrosion-resistant structure” said Andy Ye, Vice President of Clenergy the Secretary of the Board. “We are confident this project will be another success.”
Pakistan is currently suffering an energy shortfall of 6GW with demand rising by 8 percent annually. The government of Pakistan is hoping to extend the Bahawalpur project to 1,000MW spread over 6,500 acres of land.
