August 10 (Renewables Now) - Malaysian photovoltaic (PV) plants builder Solarvest Holdings Bhd (KLSE:SLVEST) has won an engineering, procurement, construction, and commission contract for a 17.36-MW solar project in Malaysia.

The MYR-66-million (USD 15.6m/EUR 13.3m) contract was awarded by Grooveland Sdn. Bhd. Solarvest will construct the solar farm in Mukim Bota in the state of Perak.
