Solarvest secures RM30 million contract to develop Solar PV systems across 6 UiTM campuses

Solar Photovoltaic system specialist, Solarvest Holdings Berhad has secured a contract a RM30 million worth contract from Go Energy Sdn Bhd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of UiTM Facilities & Energy Sdn Bhd to develop and operate Solar PV systems and all associated infrastructure across 6 Universiti Teknologi Mara campuses nationwide.

The contract was awarded to a consortium, which is 90% owned by Atlantic Blue Sdn. Bhd., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Solarvest, and 10% by GFM Services Berhad’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Global Facilities Management Sdn. Bhd. to provide engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning services of Solar PV systems across the 6 UiTM campuses, with a cumulative plant capacity of circa 11.1 megawatt peak.

“It is encouraging to witness education providers like UiTM adopt the use of renewable energy and take advantage of the viable space of their rooftop to provide a greener environment for the students,” said Davis Chong, chief executive officer of Solarvest.

“Via this partnership, we are able to provide a more holistic energy management solution for clients to save on electricity bills by generating their own energy via solar panels as well as enhance the on-going efficiency of energy usage by utilizing IoT technology sensors,” he added.

The 6 UiTM campuses are UiTM Permatang Pauh, UiTM Kuala Pilah, UiTM Alor Gajah, UiTM Dungun, UiTM Jengka and UiTM Segamat.

The project is set to commence upon the issuance of Notice To Proceed (NTP) for each campus, and each campus is expected to be completed within two months from the notice date.

The solar project is estimated to generate approximately 14 Gigawatt hours a year and will reduce carbon discharge totaling about 9,500 tonnes a year upon the completion of installation.
