Clenergy Wins Bid To Supply Equipment for Pakistan’s Largest Solar Power Project
The largest solar power project in Pakistan has started to take shape as orders have been placed for the mounting structures for solar photovoltaic modules. These mounting structures will be supplied by China-based Clenergy International.
Clenergy International has joined hands with TBEA SunOasis to supply mounting structures for 40 MW of solar PV modules to the Quaid-e-Azam Solar Park project. The proposed 1,000 MW project will have 100 MW installed by the end of this year while the project is expected to achieve the full capacity by 2016.
Clenergy and TBEA SunOasis have partnered for several solar power projects, but this is their first major venture outside Chinese borders. TBEA SunOasis will cover engineering, procurement and construction of the project, in addition to its operation and maintenance.
The progress on this flagship power project would bring relief to a country stricken with acute power shortages. Hydro and thermal power projects are struggling to generate power to match the demand. The hydro power generation has dropped significantly due to a weak monsoon this year, while the thermal power projects are short of fuel.
