Yingli to supply 12 MW of modules to Malaysian projects


Yingli Green Energy will supply 12 MWp of PV modules to Malaysian solar company Gading Kencana.

The group's Yingli Green Energy Singapore division will supply the high-efficiency PANDA panels, which contain Yingli's patented n-type cell technology. The modules will be used in an 8 MWp utility-scale solar farm in Malacca, Malaysia, which covers approximately 14.5 acres. Yingli has so far delivered 30,000 modules to the project site. The plant will generate an estimated 11 million kilowatt hours of electricity a year.

The remaining 4 MWp of modules comprising both PANDA and multicrystalline panels will be used in a second project phase, which will be dedicated to residential installations across Malaysia.

"Malaysia has high solar generating potential throughout the year, so cooperating with companies like Yingli to grow our country's solar PV capacity makes good economic sense," said Ir Guntor Tobeng, managing director of Gading Kencana. "We believe that the combination of our two companies' strengths will help us to provide the best quality of service to our clients and to local communities."

Angie Koh, Yingli Singapore's business development director, added, "We are pleased to establish a strong partnership with Gading Kencana, one of Malaysia's most prominent solar project developers, and we believe our agreement represents a significant opportunity for expansion for both of our companies. Our collaboration will help Yingli to meet demand for clean power in Malaysia, and to solidify the company's leadership position in Southeast Asia."
