Phoenix Solar Pte Ltd has been awarded an order to design a 39.5MWp photovoltaic power plant near Perth, West Australia, as partner in a joint venture established for the purpose of this project. Phoenix Solar will also be in charge of the offshore procurement of all vital components. The construction of the three phases of the plant, built on one site, will be managed and carried out by the other joint venture partner WBHO. The Notice to Proceed is expected to be issued in August, 2017.
Mark Argar, Phoenix Solar Senior Vice President Asia/Pacific, underlined: "We are proud of cooperating with WBHO in this venture on behalf of a successful and ambitious renewable energy company like Westgen. With this large project, Phoenix Solar is not only reentering the market of ground-mounted utility-scale solar PV power plants in its Asia/Pacific region but we also make a big step onto the Australian market which we see as an emerging solar PV market with multi GW scale annual build out expected in the coming years. We are confident that we shall be able to gain our share of these considerable opportunities and are looking forward to continued growth in the entire region."
