January 20 (Renewables Now) - Germany’s BayWa r.e. renewable energy GmbH has finalised the sale of its first solar farms in Malaysia to Kuala Lumpur-based independent power producer (IPP) reNIKOLA Sdn Bhd.

The buyer acquired a 5.2-MWp solar farm in Arau, Baywa r.e.’s maiden project in Malaysia, and the 39-MWp Gebeng plant for an undisclosed price. The sale was conducted in two stages and closed in December 2020, Baywa r.e. said in a press release on Tuesday.
