January 8 (Renewables Now) - Blueleaf energy, formerly known as Conergy, today said it will be providing power from a 3-MWp solar park to the Malaysian unit of German technology group Robert Bosch GmbH.
Under a 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with Robert Bosch Malaysia Sdn Bhd, the Singapore-based downstream solar company will design and build the specific photovoltaic (PV) plant and will also be its owner and asset manager. Electricity from the facility will be used to power the technology and services group’s production and warehouse base in the northwestern Malaysian state of Penang.
Once the solar park becomes operational in the second quarter of 2020, it will generate some 4,500 MWh of electricity for Bosch Malaysia, offsetting around 3,300 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions annually. The generated electricity will be enough to meet the demand of 900 local homes, Blueleaf estimates.
Greencells Energy Asia Pacific, a unit of Germany’s Greencells Group, will act as an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor on the project.
