Norway’s Scatec Solar completes fourth solar PV project in Malaysia

Renewables Now:

Norwegian power producer Scatec Solar ASA today announced the commercial operation of the 47-MW Redsol photovoltaic (PV) plant in Northwest Malaysia.

Now that it is hooked to the grid, the solar park will supply some 67 GWh of power per year, offsetting around 44,000 tonnes of annual carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. It has a 21-year off-take contract with local utility Tenaga Nasional Berhad.

The project, contracted in Malaysia’s second large-scale solar tender round, was executed in partnership with Fumase (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd, an asset manager and developer with dual headquarters in the US and Malaysia.

Redsol is Scatec Solar’s fourth project in Malaysia, which, according to CEO Raymond Carlsen, is a prioritised market for the company.
