The 50MW ac solar power station in North Malaysia’s Kuala Ketil operated by CGN Energy International Holdings Co Ltd subsidiary Edra Solar Power Sdn Bhd, achieved commercial operations on Feb 25.
Construction on the 260-acre photovoltaic power station began in March 2018, and it was connected to the grid nine months later. One of the largest of its kind in Malaysia, the solar power station will generate an estimated 78,400 kWh of electricity annually, reducing carbon dioxide emissions by 36,000 tons per year.
The Edra team stayed true to the CGN principles of “Safety First, Quality Foremost, Pursuing Excellence” and “Doing things right in one go” throughout the construction of the power station. As of Feb 25, the project had clocked 434,974 safety man-hours without environmental and lost time injuries.
CGN has accumulated extensive experience in developing and building photovoltaic greenfield projects in Malaysia and Southeast Asia, laying a solid foundation for the company’s future projects.
