This project will install and commission a 10MW Solar Power Plant with battery energy storage system at Nanjoka in Salima, a district in the central region of Malawi, situated 71km away from the Capital City, Lilongwe.
EGENCO has already acquired 110 hectares of land at Nanjoka, which can accommodate a 50MW solar power plant. However, development will take place in phases, starting first with a 10MW solar power plant.
The contract for designing, supplying, installation and commissioning of the 10MW scalable solar photovoltaic power plant has being awarded to Chint Electric Co. Ltd.
It is expected that the power plant will be ready for operations before end of 2022.
