Suntech, as a leading solar photovoltaic manufacturer in the world, Suntech’s first project in Kazakhstan has been successfully connected to the grid and formally put into operation. Suntech successfully entered the energy market of Kazakhstan through cooperation with Goldbeck Solar GmbH, As the first major project for Suntech to access to the market of Kazakhstan, the Agadyr project has adopted over 150,000 pieces Suntech bifacial modules, with its aggregate capacity reaching up to 50MW.
Kazakhstan is a key hub in the layout of China's Belt and Road Initiative, and energy communication has become a field of great prospect targeted by the economic and trade departments and enterprises of both countries.
Agadyr solar power station is sited in Karaganda, Kazakhstan, a location featuring flat terrain, arid climate, and excellent light conditions, with direct solar radiation duration of about 2,600 hours per year. However, the rainfall and humidity in this area are not stable and temperature variation in a year reaches up to about 80°C, which impose great challenges on the operation and maintenance of the power station. Therefore, the key for the project to succeed lies in the quality and service life of modules; Suntech's modules of 12-year product warranty and 30-year linear warranty perfectly match the requirements of the project.
According to Paris Climate Agreement, Kazakhstan promises to reduce its carbon emission in 2030 by 15% compared to that in 1990. Moreover, Kazakhstan plans to make the renewable energy account for half of its total energy consumption by 2050. The completion of Agadyr solar power station symbolizes an important step made by Karaganda and the whole Kazakhstan in pursuing self-sufficiency in energy and development of renewable energy; Suntech will continue to cooperate with Goldbeck Solar and help Kazakhstan and surrounding markets to update and transform their energy industry from traditional energy to green energy.
