BP Solar to Supply System to China

BP has announced that, in partnership with Kenuo JKD, it has been selected to supply a solar photovoltaic on-grid power system to Shenzhen’s Citizen Center, a new building providing municipal facilities including a museum, a library, an exhibition center and conference facilities.

LINTHICUM, Maryland – June 3, 2002 [SolarAccess.com] The project will consist of solar roof cladding with the potential to generate one megawatt of electric power using BP’s state-of-the-art poly-crystalline photovoltaic panels. BP and Kenuo JKD will supply the panels and other components as well as designing an integrated system. The total project is valued at US$7.5 million. “This project sets a significant milestone for the development of renewable energy in China’s eastern seaboard,” said Professor Xu Honghua of Kenuo JKD. “We are delighted to be partnering with BP again, building on our track record of delivering integrated solar solutions for China. This project builds on the work we have already done together, supplying solar village and home systems in rural China.” The project complements BP’s existing activity in Shenzhen where it was chosen as the foreign partner to carry out the feasibility study for China’s first liquified natural gas terminal and trunk line. “We are delighted to be involved in a second energy project in Shenzhen which is helping shift the energy mix to one which is cleaner for the environment,” said Gary Dirks, CEO, BP China. “The Shenzhen project provides a powerful demonstration of our ability to deliver solar power in China. This is one of the largest on-grid solar projects that BP has ever been involved with.” Harry Shimp, BP Solar, CEO said: “We see significant growth opportunities in China and this project is an important milestone.”
