The 900MW solar project which is about to construct on April 20th, 2015 in Punjab of Pakistan is so far the single largest solar power project in the world. This project is invested and constructed by Zonergy Company Limited. It has been listed in early harvest projects under “China Pakistan Economic Corridor” (CPEC) roadmap and considered as one of the key initiating projects in “One Road One Belt” national development Plan. The 900MW solar project is constructed in three phases and expected to connect to national grid by the end of 2016. It will be financed by Chinese financial institutions.
Solar power generation has become a global focus because it is clean, renewable and safe. Punjab of Pakistan has remarkable sunshine conditions. The local government intends to improve power shortage problem through developing solar power projects. This 900 MW project is located in QA solar Park in Bahawalpur of Punjab with total area of 4500 acres. An annual amount of 1.271 billion KWh of electricity is expected to be generated from this solar power station, which will greatly relieve the power shortage in Punjab and neighboring areas. This project will also promote local economic development and improve people’s livelihood. At least 3300 job opportunities will be created directly. After all 900MW are connected to national grid, 394,000 tons of standard coal will be saved and 826,000 tons of carbon dioxide will be reduced every year. This solar power station will become a “solar oasis” in CPEC and injected new energy for deepening China-Pakistan friendship.
President of Zonergy Mr. Yu Yong said this project has great economic and political significance as it has been listed in early harvest projects in CPEC. The investment and construction of this global single largest solar power project raises high level requirements on capital, technology and management for Zonergy. With comprehensive management advantages and international projects development experiences, Zonergy is confident to build this project to be an exemplary one in CPEC projects and a new highlight in China-Pakistan friendship.
