This landmark agreement entails the installation of a cutting-edge 2.5-megawatt-peak (MWp) rooftop solar photovoltaic (PV) system at Hevea KB’s factory in Chemor, Perak, marking a significant stride towards clean energy solutions in Malaysia.
Solarvest, appointed as the engineering, procurement, construction, and commission (EPCC) provider for this solar PV installation, envisages the generation of 2.5 MWp of clean energy. This groundbreaking initiative aims to substantially alleviate Hevea KB’s reliance on conventional power sources, concurrently charting a substantial reduction in its carbon footprint.
This collaboration signifies the second synergistic venture between Halcyon Agri and Solarvest, following their successful partnership with Euroma Rubber Industries Sdn Bhd in Kulim, Kedah. The unveiling of the Chemor, Perak rooftop solar PV system stands as a testament to Halcyon Agri’s commitment to embracing renewable energy on an expansive scale.
