October 25th, 2012 by Joshua S Hill
Yingli Green Energy announced Wednesday that it will be supplying 1 megawatt of multicrystalline photovoltaic modules to the Ulu Pandan NEWater Plant as it constructs what will be, upon completion, the largest solar PV installation at one single location in Singapore.
Yingli Green Energy will be providing the modules to SolarGy, a professional PV system integrator based in Singapore, who will be responsible for engineering, procurement, and construction of the project. The project is owned by K-Green Trust and will be managed by Keppel Seghers NEWater Development.
“Since its opening in 2011, our regional headquarters in Singapore has continuously driven our sales and business development in Southeast Asia,” commented Mr. Liansheng Miao, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Yingli Green Energy.”It is a pleasure for us to work with SolarGy and KSND to power the largest solar project in Singapore. We’ll continue to build our success in this region and look forward to serving more customers with our high quality products.”
Mr Albert Lim, Managing Director of SolarGy Pte Ltd, Singapore, said: “This is by far the single largest PV project in Singapore. We are confident that SolarGy will be able to deliver a high standard using Yingli modules. We are excited about this green project which will have significant contribution in the reduction of carbon footprint and are now proceeding in earnest with the EPC contract.”
The project will be home to approximately 4,000 modules covering an area around 10,000 square metres and will generate an estimated 1,200,000 kWh of clean energy a year, equivalent to the average electricity consumption of 250 four-room residential apartments in Singapore.
