The Norwegian solar project developer and power plant operator Scatec Solar ASA and partners have grid connected its third solar power plant in Malaysia, the 66 MW »Merchang« plant. The company now has a total of 197 MW in operation in the country. The facility 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 (PPA) 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).
With grid connection of this power plant, Scatec Solar currently has plants with a total capacity of 911 MW in operation and another 993 MW under construction.
