The largest solar power plant in Taiwan to date will use c-Si PV modules from Suntech, nearly doubling Taiwan’s current installed capacity. The 4.7MW plant is being built for Taiwan Power Co. and developed by Fortune Electric in Young’an, Kaohsiung, Taiwan.
“We chose Suntech modules for superior performance and reliability, as seen in utility-scale installations across Asia, Europe, and the Americas,” said Liao Wen Sing, VP of Fortune Electric. “We look forward to working with Suntech on this momentous project – hopefully the first of many large-scale solar plants in Taiwan.”
Suntech said that 16,640 advanced polycrystalline modules would be used, each with a peak power output of up to 280W. Construction of the power plant will begin in June 2010 and come on stream in early 2011.
