Renewable energy developer and green engineering solutions provider, Cypark Resources Bhd, has completed on Monday a RM65mil solar park – its third renewable energy park project – in collaboration with Selasih Mentari Sdn Bhd in Negri Sembilan.
The solar park, launched by Negri Sembilan Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Haji Mohamad Hasan, is located in Kuala Sawah, Rantau, and said to have a 6,475MWh annual generation capacity and capable of powering approximately 7,000 basic homes with green electricity.
The Kuala Sawah renewable energy park is Cypark’s third solar park project in Negri Sembilan and the fifth for Peninsular Malaysia.
The other sites in Negri Sembilan are located in Pajam and Bukit Palong, while another two solar parks are in Kuala Perlis, Perlis and Rimba Terjun in Pontian, Johor.
The latest park utilises 20,192 solar panels, 25km of electrical cabling and eight (8) units of centralised inverters on 21 acres of reclaimed landfill, and also houses a control building and an electrical room.
The five solar parks constructed by the Group produce a total of 42,545MWh annual generation, saves the release of up to 29,357 tonnes of carbon dioxide and reduces annual methane released into the atmosphere by 1,398 tonnes.
Cypark said its projects showed that the company had developed the technical know-how to generate renewable energy on remediated landfill sites, where waste biomass, landfill gas and solar rays could be harnessed to produce green energy.
