Chinese solar mounting systems maker Powerway Renewable Energy Co Ltd said Friday it has finalised the construction of a 100-MW photovoltaic (PV) plant in Pakistan’s Punjab province.

The main contractor of the Quaid-i-Azam solar project is TBEA Sun Oasis Co Ltd.

It had previously taken on the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) as well as the operation and the maintenance of the facility.

In a separate statement Wednesday, the Chinese firm announced it has received another order for a small-scale PV system in the country from Shell Pakistan Ltd, a unit of oil and gas major Royal Dutch Shell Plc. As part of the new deal, Powerway will provide the design, mounting systems and construction services for a 125.4-kW solar array.

In addition, Powerway said in a statement Thursday it had switched on the first residential PV rooftop system in Guangdong province’s city of Sanshui, with a 2.75-kW capacity.
