August 19 (Renewables Now) - Poyry Energy Sdn Bhd will act as Owner’s Engineer (OE) for a 30-MW solar park in Malaysia, being built by Oslo-based Scatec Solar ASA (OSL:SSO) and Fumase (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd.

The local unit of Finnish consulting and engineering firm Poyry Plc (HEL:POY1V) will assist with the project management and the engineering and as-built drawing review, as well as with other activities during construction. It got the job from Scate subsidiary Redsol Sdn Bhd.

The solar photovoltaic (PV) farm will be located in Perak, Northwest Malaysia. It is the fourth project of Scatec Solar in the country and Poyry’s third solar OE assignment there. On its website, Scatec Solar says the power plant is to reach commercial operation in the fourth quarter of 2019. It is one of the projects awarded in Malaysia’s second large-scale solar tender.

In July, Scatec completed the third and last park in a 197-MW solar portfolio in Malaysia, for which it partnered with a consortium led by Malaysian engineering company Itramas Corp Sdn Bhd.
