The Kendari-3 2 X 50 megawatt coal-fired power plant designed by Sunpower Group subsidiary Yangguang Engineering Design Institute was successfully connected to the grid in Indonesia, Sunpower said in a filing to SGX Tuesday.

Once the plant is fully operational, it is expected to provide 880 million kilowatt hours of electricity annually, Sunpower said.

“We are pleased with the excellent progress of the project, and will work hard toward a successful handover,” Guo Hong Xin, executive chairman of Sunpower, said in the statement.

“Our design services for these overseas projects attests to our professional capability and also contribute our efforts to the economic development of the Belt and Road countries,” he added.

The plant, located in Tanjung Tiram, Southeast Sulawesi, Indonesia, is the 36th facility that Yangguang Institute has provided design services for in the country, the filing said.

Yangguang Institute has delivered 63 overseas projects in total, with operations across 11 countries in the Belt and Road region, including Thailand, Vietnam, India, Pakistan and Bulgaria, Sunpower said.
