Reon Energy Limited on Tuesday announced its latest 10 MW captive Solar Power Project for Eni New Energy Pakistan at Bhit, Sindh. The 10 MW photovoltaic project is expected to produce approximately 20 GWh (Gigawatt hours) annually.
The output energy will be used on site, reducing gas consumption and avoiding around 140.000 Tonnes of CO2 equivalent emissions in the next 10 years.
The project aims to integrate the new photovoltaic project with the existing power generating facility. Once operational, it will allow the shutdown of one the existing gas turbines and consequently to cut down on operational costs as stated by Eni. Mujtaba Haider Khan, CEO, Reon Energy Limited said “I would like to congratulate Eni New Energy Pakistan for starting this project of strategic importance for the country as it saves precious gas currently being used for on-site power generation.
The 10MW Photovoltaic project shall secure an additional energy source for Eni New Energy Pakistan.” The project located near Bhit Gas Field is expected to complete by October 2019.
