The Norwegian project developer and operator of solar power plants Scatec Solar ASA and partners have grid connected its second solar power plant in Malaysia, the 65 MW »Jasin« plant. This plant is the second of three 65 MW solar plants under completion by Scatec Solar in Malaysia. The plant, located in the south-west of Peninsular Malaysia is expected to provide about 94,000 MWh of electricity per year.
In December 2016, Scatec Solar entered the Malaysian large-scale solar energy market by joining forces with a local ITRAMAS-led consortium that had signed three 21-year Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) with the country's largest electricity utility, Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB). The partnership covers realization of three solar plants totaling 197 MW with a total investment of about MYR 1,235 million ($293 million).
