The Bungala Solar One facility is part of the Bungala Solar PV Project and will have an installed capacity of 137.7 MW out of a total of more than 275 MW for the whole project, that will be able to produce 570 GWh per year. The facility will cover an area of approximately 300 hectares and will consist of about 420,000 polycrystalline PV modules mounted on single-axis tracker structures which will follow the Sun’s path from east to west; increasing the amount of energy produced by the plant, compared to PV modules with fixed structures. The overall Bungala Solar PV project is expected to become fully operational in early 2019.

French Giant ENGIE Develops 55 MW Wind Farm; First Mongolian Renewable Project

ENGIE has announced that it will build and operate the Sainshand wind farm in Mongolia, its first renewable project in the country, located in the Gobi desert. This project, which is the third privately financed wind farm in Mongolia, will support the government’s objective to evolve towards a greener economy and a better environment. A US$120m project financing package has recently been signed by a group of international investors and financial institutions to develop the project. The wind farm will have a total installed capacity of 55 MW and will provide the equivalent of the electricity consumption of 130,000 people in Mongolia.

NRG Systems And RK Systems To Commission India’s Tallest Lattice Met Tower

RK Systems created the 150m tower for one of India’s leading clean energy Independent Power Producers. The decision to commission the tower was spurred by the growing proliferation of taller turbines. The company overcame a number of design challenges to erect the 150m tower. To keep the tower stable, secure, and under the 250kg weight limit, a design was introduced, that used square tubes – a first in India. According to Arun Mehra, Director of RK Systems, “In response to the increase in hub heights, and in order to perform accurate resource assessment campaigns that reduce uncertainty, it has become necessary to capture data at these heights.”

ABB Innovation Integral To The World’s Largest Floating Solar Plant Test-bed

Land scarcity has severely limited Singapore’s adoption of solar power, so the city-state, surrounded by water, has looked to floating solar panels as a viable alternative. Floating solar panels can be 11% more efficient than solar panels placed on precious land. ABB is providing critical components on a landmark 1MW floating solar photovoltaic test-bed. It measures 1 hectare or 1.5 football fields. The energy generated will be fed into the national energy grid, providing electricity for up to 250 households.
