Vena Energy, Asia-Pacific’s leading renewable independent power producer (IPP), announced today the commercial operation of its 8.2 MW “Hancock” Solar Project in Changhua County, Taiwan. The Hancock Solar Project was completed in just 10 weeks with a workforce of 140 at the peak of its construction, and spans over an area of 8.28 hectares. The Project features 21,780 photovoltaic solar panels that produce up to 11,588 MWh annually, capable of supplying around 2,926 local households with renewable energy yearly. Compared to conventional thermal energy generation, the Hancock Solar Project will also reduce approximately 5,898 tonnes of greenhouse emissions, while saving up to 10 million litres of water annually.
“The Hancock Solar Project is our fifth renewable energy project in Taiwan, which brings our total operational portfolio to 98.2 MW,” said XS Koo, Head of Vena Energy Taiwan. “We were able to complete the construction of the project in just 10 weeks, almost one month ahead of our construction schedule. With the project generating clean energy to grid, we now look forward to sustaining our host communities through social activities, as well as support the Taiwan government’s goal of achieving 20% renewable energy by 2050.”
