Description Through this procurement exercise, the Tunisian government hopes to build six solar plants with a capacity of 10 MW each and ten 1 MW small solar parks. JULY 15, 2019 EMILIANO BELLINI Tunisia’s Ministry of Energy, Mines and Renewable Energies has kicked-off a third tender for the development and construction of several solar power plants not exceeding 10 MW in size. Through this third procurement exercise, the Tunisian government is seeking to build six solar power plants with an installed power capacity of 10 MW each and ten 1 MW small solar parks. The deadline to submit project proposals is November 26 and plants will have to be constructed under the Build Own Operate (BOO) mode. Selected projects will sell electricity to Tunisia’s state-owned utility, Société Tunisienne de l’électricité et du gaz (STEG) under a long-term PPA. The tender is part of a series planned by the Tunisian government, which aims to install around 1 GW of renewable energy capacity in the period 2017-2020. Through a first tender of the same kind, which was launched in May 2017, the Tunisian government contracted seven 10 MW projects from domestic companies and Tunisian-international consortia. Construction the first project started in May. A second tender for another 70 MW of solar was launched last year. In this process, the Tunisian authorities decided on six 10 MW projects proposed by Tunisian and international developers. The ministry is also preparing to tender another 500 MW of solar for larger projects. So far, it has released a list of 16 prequalified developers. The round will facilitate the construction of a 200 MW solar plant in Tataouine, in the Sahara Desert; two 100 MW PV facilities in Kairouan and Gafsa; and two 50 MW solar parks in Sidi Bouzid and Tozeur. Under its renewable energy strategy, Tunisia aims to deploy around 4.7 GW of clean energy capacity by 2030.

Description Despite a demanding ceiling price of €45/MWh the tender has received applications for projects with seven times the generation capacity it will allocate. JULY 12, 2019 MARIAN WILLUHN Portugal’s decision for public auction procurement process for PV plants has been met with spectacular demand. The Portuguese government plans to tender for 1.4 GW of solar generation capacity. With the auctions in question due to be completed by August 10, minister of the environment and energy transition João Pedro Matos Fernandes has announced a ceiling price for the tender will be set at €45/MWh (€0.045/kWh). Fernandes told the Sapo financial newspaper the 24-project PV tender prompted applications for 10 GW of capacity from 64 projects. The minister added, he was fully aware the current average price for solar on the Iberian peninsula is around €55/MWh. “Regarding the subscription of 10 GW for 1.4 GW of connection points available, it seems to me the market is looking into Portugal as a competitive and transparent market with fair and well planned bidding processes,” Pedro Amaral Jorge, CEO of Portuguese renewable energy association APREN told pv magazine. “Having said that, for sure Portugal gathers all the required and necessary conditions to be a top European market for PV generation, both centralized and distributed.” Fierce price competition State secretary for energy João Galamba revealed, of the 1.4 GW of capacity to be auctioned, 750 MW will be assigned to projects in central-northern Portugal’s Centro region and another 340 MW will be assigned to the Lisboa e Vale do Tejo region, in the center of the country. Alentejo and Algarve, sunnier regions further south, will be allocated only 235 MW and 30 MW, respectively. Jorge agreed with Minister Fernandes’ prediction such high demand for the tender would drive prices even further below the ceiling price. To put that restrictive €45 price ceiling into a southern European context, Greece recently allocated 143 MW of new solar generation capacity for €62/MWh. The Iberian peninsula, however, has attracted subsidy free solar projects in recent months at power prices as low as €27/MWh. Developers in the Portuguese tender can present two kinds of offer: one with a fixed price below €45/MWh and another with a variable tariff which includes a requirement to pay compensation to the electricity system, depending on the spot market power prices. When the project price is higher than the market price, the Portuguese government will pay the project the difference between the prices. When the market price is higher, the project owner will pay the Portuguese government the difference. Successful projects will be granted a 15-year power supply deal. Minister Fernandes said the current subscription level suggests around €1 billion will be drawn into the country’s renewable energy sector as the government plans to install 7 GW of solar by 2030. Portugal has installed 700 MW of solar capacity, mainly on residential and commercial rooftop, to date. By 2020 the country wants to have 1.5 GW installed, looking at the development of large-scale solar parks.

Description The kingdom has revealed 28 Saudi entities are among the 60 bidders when the first four projects of the second round of its National Renewable Energy Program are offered up in just over a week’s time. JULY 10, 2019 MAX HALL Saudi Arabia has announced details of the tendering process for the second round of its National Renewable Energy Program (NREP) with requests for proposals for the first four projects opening in eight days’ time. The 600 MW Al Faisaliah project near Jeddah is among the solar prizes on offer from Thursday, July 18, along with 300 MW facilities in Jeddah itself and at nearby Rabigh, and a 200 MW installation at Al Jawf, near Qurayyat. That 1.4 GW slice of project capacity will be followed by two smaller ‘category A’ projects a fortnight later, on August 1. A 50 MW solar project at Medina and a 20 MW facility at Rafha will be open for proposals on that date with the kingdom’s Renewable Energy Project Development Office (REPDO) announcing on Monday the smaller schemes “are designed to create greater opportunities for local companies to participate in the NREP”. That claim is likely to raise eyebrows in the boardroom of French developer EDF, which lost out to Saudi rival ACWA Power in the tender for the 300 MW Sakaka project in Saudi last year despite bidding a world record low price for the power generated. Local contenders The REPDO statement confirmed earlier reports the field of possible bidders has been narrowed down to 60 and added 28 of them are based in Saudi Arabia. The body responsible for running the tender – part of the kingdom’s Ministry of Energy, Industry and Mineral Resources – said it expects the initial six projects to attract investment of around SAR5.2 billion ($1.39 billion). Crucially, the projects will include an unspecified local content requirement, which will consist of a percentage determined by the mechanism defined by the Local Content & Government Procurement Authority. REPDO added a further six renewable energy projects would be tendered in the final quarter to complete the 12-project second round of the NREP. That final stage will presumably include the previously trailed, 20 MW solar project planned for Mahad Duhab.

Description The water authority of the city state wants to procure a 50 MW floating solar installation on the Tengeh Reservoir that will be operational by 2021. Details were revealed today by technical consultant DNV GL. JULY 4, 2019 MAX HALL When it came to identifying a suitable site for floating solar in the densely-populated, land scarce city state of Singapore, it seems developers did not have to look too far. The Solar Energy Research Institute of Singapore (SERIS) had been using the Tengeh Reservoir as a test bed for floating solar installations since 2017, so when water authority the Public Utilities Board (PUB) sought an appropriate location for the state’s largest floating installation, Tengeh must have been an obvious choice. Details of a 50 MW installation described as “Southeast Asia’s largest public tender for floating PV” were revealed this morning by Norwegian technical consultancy DNV GL, which has been appointed technical advisor for the project. Commissioning authority PUB last month issued a tender to design, build, own and operate the project, for which DNV GL says it has already carried out preliminary design, an independent energy assessment, technology benchmarking and business model studies. The world’s biggest The Bærum-based consultancy will now provide tender support and proposal evaluation during the bidding process to secure rights to develop the project and will then carry out “design reviews, testing and commissioning reviews during the construction phase [and] performance analysis and site testing when the project is operational”, announced a DNV GL press release issued today. The consultancy said the project is set to be operational by 2021 and will then power a water treatment facility at the site. Although the DNV GL announcement indicated the Tengeh project “will be one of the largest single floating solar systems in the world”, it is not on the same scale as the 150 MW project developed by inverter maker and floating PV pioneer Sungrow in an area flooded after mine subsidence in Guqiao, China last year. Pairing hydro with floating PV Another 150 MW floating installation, also in Anhui province, was reportedly due for completion by the Three Gorges New Energy Company in May last year. A report published by SERIS and the World Bank Group late last year cited the potential for floating solar to become a “third pillar” of solar power deployment, after ground mounted systems and rooftop PV, and its attractiveness to a city-state rated the third most densely populated country on earth by worldatlas.com is obvious. The Renewable Energy Global Status Report 2018 published by the Renewable Energy Policy Network for the 21st Century estimated hydropower-linked reservoirs around the world take up a surface area of 265.7km². Floating PV is considered the perfect technology to twin with such hydro generation assets and it has been estimated covering a quarter of that global hydropower surface area with floating solar would secure 4.4 TW of new PV capacity.

Description The project is part of the utility’s plan to deploy large-scale floating PV installations at several hydroelectric dams it operates in Thailand. JUNE 20, 2019 EMILIANO BELLINI The state-owned Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT) has issued an invitation for bids for a 55.5 MW (DC) floating PV project it intends to build at the Sirindhorn Dam, where the 12 MW Sirindhorn Hydropower Plant, is located on the Lam Dom Noi river in the Sirindhorn district of Ubon Ratchathani. The company said in the announcement that the project will be financed with its own funds, and that it will be built at a cost of THB 1.86 billion ($59.6 million). The project is expected to rely on glass-glass crystalline silicon modules, while developers will be offered the choice between central and string inverters. Bids must be submitted to the utility by August 20. Floating pipeline The project is one of two floating projects that EGAT announced in late January. A second 24 MW (AC) project is planned for the Ubolratana Dam in Khok Sung in the Ubolratana district of Khon Kaen province in Northern Thailand. The dam is home to the first hydroelectric power project developed in Thailand’s northeastern area of Isan. Thailand’s National Energy Policy Council decided to approve both projects, while also revealing these would be built for $1 million per megawatt. EGAT operates 45 power generation assets totaling 15.54 GW. Of these, three are thermal, six combined cycle gas turbines, 24 hydropower, eight renewable energy and four diesel. The company has a 37% share of Thailand’s power market.

Description Jetion Solar (China) Co., Ltd. (the “Company” or “Jetion Solar”), one of the world’s leading PV manufacturers, recently announced that it has wrapped up construction of a 50 MW (DC) solar project in the southern Vietnamese province of Binh Thuan. JULY 11, 2019 The China based company built the project in cooperation with renewables developer Helio Power Vietnam. The plant, which named “Thuan Minh 2 Solar Farm”, has started commercial operation from the end of June, 2019. It is expected to generate roughly 78,000 MWh clean energy every year, which is enough to cater to the needs of 40,000 Vietnamese households. The project is Jetion Solar’s first EPC project in Vietnam. In August 2018, CNBM New Energy, a wholly owned subsidiary of Jetion Solar, signed a strategic cooperation agreement with Helio Power Vietnam to develop and construct a total of 500 MW solar power plants. The currenty 50 MW project in Binh Thuan province is the first phase of the total agreement. Vietnam’s total installed PV capacity remains negligible thus far, with slightly more than 100 MW plugged in by the end of 2018, according to statistics from the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA). However, industry analysts expect a big chunk of solar capacity to be built this year, with new feed-in tariff rates to go into effect this summer. The Vietnamese government, meanwhile, hopes to see as much as 12 GW patched into the national electricity grid by 2030.

Description JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. (“JinkoSolar” or the “Company”) (NYSE: JKS), one of the largest and most innovative solar module manufacturers in the world, today announced that it has supplied 95 MW of highly-efficient solar panels to Vena Energy Australia, an independent power producer with shareholders including Global Infrastructure Partners (GIP) and China Investment Corp., (CIC), for use in the Tailem Bend Solar Project (the “Project”). JULY 10, 2019 Located in Adelaide, Australia, the Project was connected to the grid earlier this year and began generating power in February 2019. The Project is expected to meet the electrical needs of 40,000 homes by generating 200,000 MWh of renewable energy per year. It is also one of the first large-scale solar projects to begin generating power in South Australia. JinkoSolar’s Cheetah technology and half-cell module configuration offer a significant boost in power generation at a lower price. The 290-300Wp 120 half-cell (60 regular cells cut in half) mono module’s performance is comparable to that of a common monocrystalline PERC module but is far more affordable. In addition, JinkoSolar’s PID-free series reduce hot-spots and lower losses under shading conditions which strengthens their reliability and performance ratio in different environments. “We are honored to have been chosen by Vena Energy Australia to supply solar panels for this project,” said Ms. Anita Li, General Manager of ROA. “JinkoSolar’s panels generate competitively priced energy, offer high levels of reliability and are proven to generate power consistently over the long-term. Supported by our industry-leading technology and quality, the panels installed at the Tailem Bend Solar Project are expected to generate power efficiently for a quarter century or more.” “JinkoSolar’s technology, performance, and reliability made them the ideal partner for this project,” commented Anil Nangia, Managing Director of Vena Energy. “Their mature and proven technologies were developed with grid parity in mind and can be reliably integrated into their GW-level manufacturing capabilities. We look forward to deepening our relationship with JinkoSolar and working with them on more projects in the future.”
