50 MWp TSPP PV Power Plant commissioned on-time and on-budget: a landmark PV Power Plant installation setting records on various levels

  • 50,07 MWp largest single PV Power Plant to date in Philippines, one of the largest in South-East Asia
  • Record time-line of 4 month – exactly 123 days – from start construction “first pile in” to commissioning and achieving “first power out”
  • 189,648 PV panels will produce electricity to supply more than 24,000 Philippe homes
  • Offsetting the emission of more than 36,500 tons of CO2 annually

January 28, 2016: Syntegra Solar announced today that the landmark PetroSolar TSPP PV Power Plant project (50 MWp) has been successfully commissioned on-time / on-budget on January 27th, 2016.

The PetroSolar TSPP 50 MWp PV Power Plant is designed to produce 75,000 MWh of solar power per year, offsetting the emission of more than 36,500 tons of CO2 annually. The plant’s 189,648 PV panels will produce electricity to supply more than 24,000 Philippe homes with green, renewable electricity from the sun.

The PetroSolar PV Power Plant has been built near Tarlac City, some 90 km north-east of Metro Manila, near the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway. PetroSolar is the Solar PV subsidiary of PGEC PetroGreen Energy Cooperation, Ortigas, Philippines. PGEC owns and operates various Renewable Energy Assets and is considered a leading supplier of green power.

“The TSPP 50 MWp PV Power Plant excels on various levels, namely the highly competitive turn-key costs, a record-breaking time-line for turn-key installation as well as the time-line from initial project development to project completion / first power out, a superior quality of PV System Design and PV components utilized – all of which justifies to speak of a landmark installation in South-East Asia”, states Mathias G. Kothe, Founder and Managing Partner of Syntegra Solar.

Through the entire project development and turn-key project realization – from initial PV Power Plant concept development to EPC contract negotiations to coordination and supervision of the entire installation, up to yesterdays commissioning – Syntegra Solar as Owners Engineer of PetroSolar was instrumental in achieving an on-time / on-budget completion of this project, which sets records in several ways. “To the best of our knowledge, 4 month total construction time sets a new record for the 50 MWp PV Power Plant class in South-East Asia”, adds Dr. Tobias Seibicke, Syntegra Solar project manager for the TSPP project.
