Conergy to supply 50 MW project in Pakistan


While much focus has been on the development of photovoltaics in India, neighboring Pakistan has chosen also to deploy photovoltaics, as a part of its power-supply mix. This latest 50 MW power plant will be constructed by project developer Ensunt, for the DACC Power Generation Company Limited (DPGCL), with all components being supplied by Conergy.

In the public-private project to sure up Pakistan’s power supply, the DPGCL and Pakistani Government will jointly own the power plant. It will located near the city of Bahawalpur, in the hot and dry Cholistan region in Pakistan’s east.

Conergy will supply 210,000 PowerPlus modules and SolarLinea mounting systems to the project. More than 140 Conergy IPG 300C inverters will also be used, supplying approximately 30,000 households with power. Water pumps will also be powered, aiding irrigation-dependent agriculture in the region.

In announcing the supply deal, Conergy’s Marc Lohoff said the potential for photovoltaics in Pakistan is enormous. "Currently, only 63 per cent of the country’s total population is supplied with power." Lohoff added that more-stable electricity supply will also greatly assist Pakistan’s economy. Parts of Pakistan can be left without electricity for up to 18 hours a day.

Conergy’s CEO Philip Comberg chose to highlight how important Asian markets will be for the company in the future. "This project is another step forward in our interesting project pipeline for 2012," said Comberg. "It underlines the relevance of the Asian solar markets, their growth potential and further reflects Conergy’s excellent market access, global footprint and ambitions in Asia."
