METKA EGN is pleased to announce the signing of turn-key Engineering, Construction & Procurement contracts, with Total Eren, for two photovoltaic (“PV”) projects in Kazakhstan, totaling a capacity of 128 MWp.
Specifically, the first Project (“Nomad”) is a 28 MWp PV power plant located close to the village of Zhalagash in the Kyzylorda region and the second Project (“M-KAT”) is a 100 MWp PV Power Plant located next to the village of Shu in the Zhambyl region.
The Projects incorporate Central Inverters, Mono technology Solar PV modules and single-axis trackers. Nomad project consists of 83,592 PV modules 335Wp, 8 production substations, and covers an area of 73.94 ha. M-KAT project consists of 298,485 PV modules 335Wp, 24 production substations and covers an area of 328.93ha.
Both Projects will be the first PV power plants using single-axis trackers in Kazakhstan and are expected to enter operation by the end of 2019. Once completed, Nomad and M-KAT are expected to generate 225 GWh per year together, enough to supply the needs of about 40,000 Kazakh people while saving about 300,000 tons of CO2 per year.
METKA EGN is rapidly establishing itself as one of the most credible EPC for solar energy and storage worldwide, under the same principles with MYTILINEOS (merger process between the two companies is already under way), which ensures growth and business excellence as well as value creation for its clients, business partners and shareholders.
These contracts establish the cooperation of MYTILINEOS with Total Eren, a leading French based renewable Independent Power Producer (IPP) which develops, finances, invests in, builds and operates wind, solar and hydro power plants over the long term at a global level. Total Eren has more than 2400 MW of renewable energy projects in operation or under construction on the five continents today.
METKA EGN has attained the distinction of being among Total Eren’s preferred suppliers. This status reflects the confidence, know-how and credibility that has been built by METKA EGN in the market.
The total project cost for Nomad and M-Kat for Total Eren amounts to US$ 157 million.
