The project, located in Perak state, has a capacity of 100 MW, or 136.44 megawatts-peak (MWp), Engie said in a statement.
Kerian Solar, named after the special-purpose company formed by a joint venture between Engie and TTL Energy Sdn Bhd., has entered into a 21-year power purchase agreement with Malaysia's state utilities company Tenaga Nasional Bhd., Engie said.
The project will contribute to Engie's plans to install 50 GW of renewable energy capacity globally by 2025, said Thierry Kalfon, managing director, ENGIE Renewables for Australia and Southeast Asia.
