China's Yingli Green Energy, partnering with two other Chinese renewable energy firms, has won 233 MW of PV projects in Algeria.
Shariket el Kahraba wa el Taket el Moutadiadida (SKTM), a division of Sonelgaz (National Society for Electricity and Gas), which is in charge of electricity and natural gas distribution in Algeria, will develop the projects, which are set to begin construction in January and completed within eight months.
The consortium includes Yingli Green Energy subsidiary Yingli China, Sinohydro and Hydrochina. Yingli China formed the consortium in October to participate in the bidding for the SKTM projects, which consist of four separate installations totaling 318 MW.
The consortium, which received a winning bid notice this month for a total of 233 MW, will oversee design and construction of the installations.
Sinohydro is a subsidiary of Sinohydro Group, a global enterprise headquartered in China that operates diversified businesses from water conservancy and hydropower construction to project financing, design, implementation and operation. Hydrochina is China's leading provider of comprehensive technical services in hydropower, water resources and wind power development.
"Given its competitive strength and reliable solution among other competitors, the consortium won the largest portion of our whole program," said SKTM Chairman Chahar Boulakhras. "Those projects will help us to relieve the pressure of power supply in Algeria to some extent after being put into operation. We are looking forward to further strengthening the cooperation with Yingli in the future."
Liansheng Miao, Yingli Green Energy chairman and CEO, added that the companys cooperation with Sinohydro and Hydrochina marked a new approach to PV project development in China.
