  • Date


[Taipei, Taiwan] Vena Energy—one of Asia-Pacific’s largest Independent Power Producers (IPP) of renewable energy—announced today that the recently commissioned 70.2-megawatt Mingus Solar Project in Taiwan is Asia-Pacific’s first large-scale ground-mounted solar project to receive the TÜV Rheinland IEC 62446-1 certification.

During the IEC 62446-1 certification evaluation, the sampling frequency of the project is increased, focusing on the assessment of the hardware and overall quality of the project. Additionally, the evaluation also includes a documentation review of the project, an inspection of its system security, and performance measurement. The certification of the highlights Vena Energy’s industry-leading management in design, construction and maintenance, and that the Mingus Solar Project meets the highest industry standards.

“This important milestone is an affirmation of our development, design, procurement, construction management and operation of the Mingus Solar Project, as well as all of our renewable solar and wind projects across the Asia-Pacific region,” said Richard Chang, Managing Director at Vena Energy in Taiwan. “By combining our capabilities and expertise with local knowledge and talent, we can ensure the sustainability and reliability of the project throughout its investment lifespan.”

“The execution of the Mingus project is exemplary and reflects the vast experience that Vena Energy has in the PV Power Plant sector in Asia,” said Sebastian Petretschek, Vice General Manager and Head of Independent Engineering Asia, Solar Greater China, at TÜV Rheinland.

The 70.2-megawatt Mingus Solar Project is presently the largest ground-mounted solar project in Taiwan and was commissioned on 30-July 2019. Built on a former salt farm in Chiayi County, it consists of 195,000 photovoltaic modules spanning an area approximately 79.5-hectares and is capable of reducing approximately 60,000-tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions while saving up to 380,000-litres of water annually, compared to coal-fired generation.


亞洲首座! 韋能能源通過德國萊因 IEC 62446-1驗證標準

[台北, 台灣] 韋能能源(Vena Energy) - 亞太地區最大的再生能源開發商之一 - 今天宣布,台灣目前最大的民營太陽能發電廠 – 總裝置容量70.2MW的台灣艾貴義竹發電廠成為台灣第一座通過德國萊因 IEC 62446-1驗證標準的太陽能電廠。


“這個重要的里程碑是對台灣艾貴義竹發電廠以及我們在整個亞太地區的太陽能和風能專案的肯定。” 韋能能源台灣區副總裁張為策表示: “結合韋能能源的專業以及當地人才,我們可以確保每個專案的永續性和可靠性。”

德國萊因大中華區副總經理暨亞洲區技術總監Sebastian Petretschek表示:“ 台灣艾貴義竹發電廠的執行堪稱典範,反映了韋能能源在亞太地區光電領域的豐富經驗。”

70.2 MW的台灣艾貴義竹發電廠是目前台灣最大的民營地面型太陽能電廠,已於2019年7月30日啟用。該專案建於嘉義縣的前鹽場上,由195,000個太陽能模組組成,佔地約79.5公頃與燃煤發電相比,該太陽能發地廠能夠減少約6萬噸的溫室氣體排放,同時每年最多可節省38萬升水。
