With a two-megawatt solar energy plant Kazakhstan enters into the solar age. For this project near the border to China DEGER delivers 61 DEGERtracker type 9000NT.

The investor is the national energy provider Samruk-Energo. The Slovenian BISOL GROUP is responsible for planning, construction and installation of the solar park.

Kazakhstan's first solar energy plant is to start operation still in this year. The project is located near the city of Kapchagay in the Almaty province in the South-East of Kazakhstan, not far from the border to China. This region is ideal for harvesting solar energy because here they have more than 300 sunny days per year. 

The energy provider Samruk-Energo produces and sells among others electricity and heating energy. The company entrusted the Slovenian BISOL Group with the construction and installation of the first large-scale solar energy plant in Kazakhstan. BISOL is an internationally acting enterprise, which produces high-quality solar products and has far reaching experience in the construction of solar power plants. Operator and owner of the project in Kapchagay will be Samruk-Energo.

In Kazakhstan the currently built solar energy plant is considered to be a demonstration project. One part of it consists of fixed ground mounted installed photovoltaic systems with a total capacity of about 1.400 kilowatt, the second part consists of 61 DEGER tracking systems "Made in Germany" with a total capacity of around 600 kilowatt. All systems are equipped with monocrystalline BISOL PV modules.

The plant shall help to cover the fast growing energy demand in the Almaty province. According to Almasadam Satkaliyev, CEO of Samruk-Energo, Kazakhstan has renewable energy sources with a potential of one trillion kilowatt hours per year. They intend to increase the share of green energies in the country's energy mix from currently 0.5 percent to eleven percent by 2030.
