April 22 (Renewables Now) - Japanese renewables developer Shizen Energy Inc and the Nusa Baiduri Consortium will sign on April 25 a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to conduct a feasibility study for a 150-MW floating solar project in Malaysia.

Shizen Energy's fully owned subsidiary Shizen Malaysia Sdn Bhd will be in charge of the study. When completed, the project will become one of South East Asia’s largest floating facilities, the company said today.

The solar park is planned for the Durian Tunggal Dam in Melaka state. Once up and running, its output will be sold to government-linked water supply services company Syarikat Air Melaka Bhd (SAMB).

The feasibility study will last 12 months and if it provides a favourable result, the project will be executed in two phases.

The Nusa Baiduri Consortium consists of Shizen Malaysia as the investor and developer, while Malaysian construction firm Nusa Baiduri Sdn Bhd will be the project owner and facilitator.
