LONGi has announced that it has been selected to supply 280MWp of its high-efficiency Hi-MO 5 modules to Beximco for a project in Rangpur, Bangladesh, another important milestone for the company in helping South Asian countries meet their renewable targets.
Beximco (Bangladesh Export Import Company), the largest private sector group in Bangladesh, has been awarded the EPC contract to build a utility-scale power plant which, when commissioned in mid 2022, will make the company the country’s undisputed leader in utility-scale solar power production.
LONGi was selected to be the only designated module supplier for the plant based on module and system reliability, with its Hi-MO 5 considered the most cost-effective solution, supported by in-depth analysis of a series of boundary conditions across the entire industrial value chain.
“We are extremely proud to be leading the way in supporting the Bangladeshi government’s effort and commitment to promote energy generation from renewables”, commented O K Chowdhury, Beximco’s Managing Director. “This agreement is an achievement for both companies, as it is one of the critical milestones in developing the country’s largest grid-connected solar power plant.”
“LONGi always aims to provide the highest quality and most competitive mono-crystalline solar products. We are delighted to have been selected as sole module manufacturer by Beximco and we will fully support the company in fulfilling its commitment to delivering clean and sustainable energy in Bangladesh,” added Dennis She, Senior Vice President at LONGi Solar. “This strategic collaboration will further reinforce LONGi’s presence in Bangladesh and offer more opportunities to accelerate the global energy transition.”
