Chinese photovoltaic (PV) module producer Risen Energy has secured a contract to supply its solar PV modules for a power station in Malaysia.

Risen has agreed to deliver 150MW of solar PV modules for the floating power station. The company will deliver Jaeger 144 modules, which have an output power of up to 395W each.

The agreement signing ceremony was attended by Malaysia’s Minister of Energy, Science, Technology, Environment and Climate Change Yb Yeo Bee Yin.

Risen Energy president Xie Jian said: “Malaysia is one of our key emerging markets as it boasts abundant light resources and policies favourable to the industry. We are excited to be a part of the project in Malaysia.

“To ensure the smooth operation of the power station, once completed, we will equip the facility with our Jaeger modules, which have proven better performance in resistance to light-induced degradation (LID) and light and elevated temperature-induced degradation (LeTID).

“Our optimised Jaeger modules can minimise hotspots and the impacts from shade effect on their performance in power generation. With a lower total cost of ownership and labour expense, our modules will bring the project owner a lower levelised cost of electricity (LCOE) and higher income from power generation.”

The Chinese firm noted that the solar PV module contract is the biggest secured in Malaysia. Beginning this month, the Chinese firm will deliver the modules in batches and intends to complete it by June 2020.

This is not the first deal that Risen Energy has completed outside of China in 2019. In February it secured a 323MW supply contract from Ukranian company DTEK Renewables.
