NINGBO, China, Jan. 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Risen Energy Co., Ltd. announced recently that its 50MW photovoltaic power station project in Kazakhstan has been successfully connected to the grid. As the first large-scale ground-mounted tracking system power station connected to the grid in Kazakhstan, the implementation of the project is a significant cooperation milestone between Kazakhstan and China in the renewable energy sector.
Construction commenced in mid-2019 and it only took a little more than half a year for the facility, located in Chulakkurgan, Kazakhstan, to be connected to the grid.
