Risen Energy starts large-sale solar facility in Nepal

By Editor


Risen Energy, a Chinese renewable energy firm, has commenced the build-out of a facility under an engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract in Nuwakot, Nepal, on April 27.

Risen Energy is the general contractor for the 25MW solar PV power station. Upon completion, the power station is expected to become the first large-scale ground-mounted PV station.

In addition to EPC and the follow-up adjustment and calibration upon completion of the project, Risen Energy will contribute high-efficiency 275W solar modules, which are both reliable and cost-efficient, to the project.

The facility is scheduled to be put into operation by the end of this year, at which point it will be connected to the state grid and provide clean electricity to Kathmandu Valley during the daytime.

The Chinese provider has accelerated its expansion plans outside the home market, plans that have been in the making for years, by actively bidding on and participating in projects worldwide.

In addition to enhancing its presence in Europe, the Americas and Australia, Risen Energy has expanded into countries along the One Belt, One Road route including Bangladesh, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and the ASEAN countries.

To date, Risen Energy has 1,000 projects either under development or being delivered across the globe. The company is well on track to see the sum of its installations outside of China exceed 800MW by the end of this year, according to company officials.
