The photovoltaic plant is located near the city of Kapchagay in the Almaty province in southeastern Kazakhstan. The region has more than 300 sunny days per year.
It is considered to be a demonstration project consisting of 1,400 kW fixed ground-mounted systems and 600 kW of tracking systems. 61 DEGERtracker type 9000NT tracking systems will cover the 600 kW. All the systems will be installed with Bisol monocrystalline modules.
According to Almasadam Satkaliyev, CEO of Samruk-Energo, which will own and operate the plant, Kazakhstan has renewable energy sources with a potential of one trillion kilowatt hours per year. The utility intends to increase the share of green energies in the country's energy mix from currently 0.5 to 11% by 2030. The plant will help cover the energy demand in the Almaty province.
