Vivant Energy combines existing and emerging technologies to develop energy solutions for industries and institutions. Among these solutions is rooftop solar that makes sustainability possible for commercial and industrial facilities as well as institutions.
MALAYSIAN company Solarvest Holdings Bhd has bagged two engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (EPCC) contracts for two solar projects of Vivant Energy Corp., marking the former’s foray into the Philippine energy sector.
In a statement, Vivant Energy said the first project involves solar photovoltaic (PV) systems at 10 designated buildings with an aggregate capacity of 816.2-kilowatt peak (kWp), located at the University of San Agustin in Iloilo City.
The second project, meanwhile, is the 377.52-kWp solar PV systems for the Bulihan Industrial Park in Bulacan.
Both parties signed in March the agreements for the two projects, with target completion within the fourth quarter of the year.
According to its website, Solarvest, established in 2002, is a solar turnkey EPCC service provider, and has large scale solar PV projects, as well as residential, commercial and industrial properties projects in its portfolio.
Listed on the ACE Market of Bursa Malaysia, Solarvest also offers operations and maintenance (O&M) services of solar PV systems.
“This marks our first expansion beyond Malaysia, and we are thrilled to have received the opportunities and confidence from an established industry player such as Vivant Corp.,” said Davis Chong Chun Shiong, Solarvest group chief executive officer.
“We’re glad to have Solarvest as our partner in providing solutions that power the success of our customers. We choose partners based on a shared commitment in providing innovative, diverse and customer-focused energy solutions that will enable our customers to turn challenges into opportunities in our changing world,” Vivant Energy Chief Operating Officer Emil Andre Garcia said.
