Scatec Solar connects 65MW solar plant to grid

Jun 2019

Scatec Solar, a Norwegian firm, and its partners have connected the 65 MW (DC) Jasin plant to the grid. This is the second of three 65 MW solar plants being built by Scatec Solar in Malaysia.

The Jasin plant is located in the southwest of Peninsular Malaysia and is expected to provide approximately 94,000 of MWh of electricity annually, which translates to more than 31,000 households and avoids 70,000 tons of C02 emissions each year.

In December 2016, Scatec Solar entered the Malaysian large-scale solar Energy market by joining forces with a consortium led by ITRAMAS, a leading Malaysian engineering company in green technology and public works. The consortium signed three 21-year Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) with the country’s largest electricity utility, Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB). The partnership covers the construction of three solar plants with a combined capacity of 197 MW with a total investment of about MYR 1,235 million (USD 293 million).
