Solar EPC Development Limited (SEPC) recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with agro-based company SKL Farm to develop an integrated fishery solar project in Sylhet.
The SEPC is the pioneer of floating solar project in Bangladesh, says a press release.
SEPC's initial target is to install a cumulative 25 megawatt (MW) solar project including rooftop solar, ground-mounted solar, solar irrigation, and integrated fishery solar.
Of the targeted installation, 20 MW will be an IPP model integrated fishery-solar project on several fishing ponds of SKL Farm. A cumulative 05 MW capacity will be consumed by SKL and adjacent other farms.
SKL Farm will provide around 100 acres of fishery ponds to develop an integrated fishery solar project for 20 years of the project tenure.
In the first phase, SEPC will develop rooftop solar followed by others. SEPC is yet to submit an unsolicited project proposal to the Ministry of Power, Energy and Mineral Resources for the proposed 20 MW project.
