A team led by Waregem, Belgium-based Enfinity NV has won the bid to develop a 10 MW solar project in Dunhuan, Gansu Province, China. CGNPC and LDK Solar are partners on the bid.
The Dunhuang PV project involves an investment of 200 million yuan, with an annual power production of 16.37 million kWh, and a franchised operation term of 25 years.
‘The project is expected to start construction within four months and will be completed within the 18 following months,’ says Gino Van Neer, founder of Enfinity. All PV systems will be PV tracker panels, installed on land. Enfinity is in the process of setting up the Dunhuang joint venture company and confirming the EPC contract.
In addition, Yingli Green Energy Holding Co. Ltd. has been selected by SDIC Huajing Power Holding Co. Ltd., a subsidiary of the State Development and Investment Corp., to supply PV modules for the plant.
‘We are confident that Western regions such as Dunhuang will be big markets for solar power, as they receive abundant natural sunlight, and local governments are very open to investments by solar companies,’ notes Weidong Wang, general manager of SDIC Huajing.
