Major PV mounting systems specialist, Powerway has started ground screw foundation work at the 100MW Quaid-e-Azam Solar Energy Park in Bahawalpur, Pakistan.
The project is the first large-scale ground mount PV project in Pakistan as is expected to be completed in 2014.
Benson Wu, Powerway’s CEO said, “Thanks to Powerway’s highly efficient and professional team, along with our abundant solar farm building experience, we were lucky to win the fierce competitive bidding for this project. Pakistan has an energy shortfall of 6GW, so the government has been striving recently to develop large-scale solar projects of up to 1GW.”
EPC and O&M are being undertaken by TBEA SunOasis, China’s largest PV plant builder.
Powerway is targeting Pakistan as an emerging market, having signed a cooperation agreement with Pakistan-based Nizam Energy in 2013.
