Conergy is collaborating with Ensunt for the construction of a 50MW PV project in Pakistan, the company has announced. The PV plant for the DACC Power Generation Company (DPGCL) will be the largest solar power plant in Pakistan. The project is located in Bahawalpur and is co-owned by DPGCL and the Pakistani government. Conergy will plan, design and engineer the project as well as providing the components while Ensunt is responsible for the construction of the plant.
Marc Lohoff, Conergy board member and CSO Asia Pacific and Americas, said, “This prestigious project is a milestone for Conergy and the Asia & Middle East team. It shows that we are extremely well positioned in the Asian growth markets and that investors trust Conergy for important projects, especially those focusing on quality and longstanding experience. The potential in Pakistan is enormous: Currently, only 63% of the country’s total population is supplied with power. Due to the decentralized character of this form of energy and the high insolation levels, solar energy is ideally suited to close this gap and to supply the population with safe, clean and affordable energy. At the same time, solar power and support the economic development of the country.”
