June 20 (Renewables Now) - Chinese solar modules supplier Longi Green Energy Technology Co Ltd (SHA:601012), or Longi Solar, has delivered modules for a 19.2-MWp photovoltaic (PV) plant located close to Singapore’s Changi Airport.

The order was placed by Singaporean independent power producer Terrenus Energy, Longi Solar said on Monday. The so-called SolarLand Phase 2 project was awarded to the company by Singapore's government agency JTC Corporation.

The PV park is equipped with Longi’s Hi-MO 5 series modules, a portable mounting system and a containerised mobile substation. While the original project design was for a plant of 12 MWp in size, Terrenus lifted the capacity and expects to be able to produce 23.9 GWh of electricity annually.

According to the statement, the solar plant is currently the largest ground-mounted solar system in Singapore.

Last week, Longi unveiled new orders to supply 1 GW of PV modules for projects in Bangladesh. The Chinese manufacturer's Hi-MO 5 (72C) modules will be used at the 400-MW DC Rabigh Solar project in Saudi Arabia under a deal secured earlier in June.
