ASEAN: LYS energy group and Talesun Solar join forces to develop growing clean energy market
2020, May – LYS Energy Group (LYS), the leading Singapore home-grown Solar Independent Power Producer (IPP) has signed a collaboration agreement with Chinese top solar cell and module manufacturer Talesun Solar (Talesun), to support both companies’ expansion bolstering clean energy adoption by commercial and Industrial sector (C&I) in the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) regions.
The growing awareness from the corporate sector of the need to tackle climate change challenges is prominent towards the adoption of more sustainable and responsible business practices. This necessity of low-carbon activities has brought about a surge in clean energy demand in the region. LYS’ dedication to foster the use of greener and cleaner energy in the corporate sector is aligned with that of the ASEAN Government’s momentum to boost up the adoption of renewable energy.
The Memorandum of Agreement (MOA), remotely signed via online ceremony due to the current global COVID-19 outbreak, comprises the deployment of a total of 30MWp of distributed solar PV systems projects in ASEAN countries. By combining both companies’ excellent proficiency i.e. Talesun’ high-quality technology and trustworthy Engineering Procurement Construction (EPC), and LYS Energy’s robust financing capability and steadfast Operations & Maintenance (O&M) expertise, this new collaboration aims to actively contribute to the development of clean energy fast-growing market.
In addition to the partnership agreement between the two companies, LYS and Talesun concluded on the imminent development of a cumulated size of 2.9MWp rooftop solar PV systems in the region of LongAn province in Vietnam. The corresponding agreement encompasses five solar PV systems installation atop of plastic & rubber product manufacturing industrial factories, using a total of 3810 high-efficiency Mono-PERC Talesun Solar modules, and with emphasis on compliance with best-in-class Quality and Health Environment and Safety (HSE) standards. Talesun will act as the EPC contractor of these rooftop solar PV systems, while LYS will finance the projects and will be responsible for the operation and maintenance of the PV systems throughout the contract lifetime. The construction will be executed starting from the second half of this year and is expected to be completed before the end of 2020. The energy generated will be used to power the five factories’ daily operations and offset their CO2 emissions by approximately 3,569 tonnes1 annually.
