Jinko Solar, SchneiTec to build 60MW PV plant in Cambodia

Khmer Times:

Shanghai-based Jinko Solar, one of the world’s leading solar module manufacturers, will participate in the construction of what will become the Kingdom’s largest solar plant by supplying more than 200,000 solar modules to local firm SchneiTec Group. The 60-megawatt solar plant will be raised in Kampong Speu province.

Warren Lee, business development manager for Southeast Asia at Jinko Solar, said both companies have been working on the deal for about a year before coming to a final agreement. He said it is the company’s biggest deal in the Kingdom yet: “We have other small projects here already, mostly for residential rooftops and smaller scale commercial projects. “But, this project is our first utility-scale installation,” Mr Lee said.

The power produced at the upcoming plant will be supplied to Electricite du Cambodge (EDC), Mr Lee said.

“This project marks a milestone in Cambodia’s renewable power section, not only in terms of capacity, but also as major stepping stone for the country to find clean and efficient energy solutions in tackling the energy deficit,” he said.

The installation of the modules is due to begin next month, with an expected completion and commercial operation date set for December 2019, Mr Lee said.
