October 14 (Renewables Now) - Chinese solar products maker Risen Energy Co Ltd (SHE:300118) has secured an order to supply 150 MW of photovoltaic (PV) modules for a project in Malaysia, it announced on Friday.

The recently signed deal, which the Chinese manufacturer says is its biggest order to date in Malaysia, will see Risen Energy deliver its Jaeger 144 modules of up to 395 W each. They will be powering a floating PV park, specific details about which were not available. According to Risen Energy, this is also its largest supply contract for an overseas floating power project.

The Chinese firm intends to ship the equipment in batches, starting this month, with deliveries planned to be finalised by June next year.

Xie Jian, president of Risen Energy, noted that Malaysia is one of the major emerging markets for the company as it “boasts abundant light resources and policies favourable to the industry.” On a global level, the company has recently enhanced its presence in markets in the US, Europe, Southeast Asia, Central Asia and the Asia-Pacific region, it said in the statement.
