Trina Solar said the project plans to use N-type bi-facial high-efficiency PV module and string inverter to improve efficiency and lower the levelised cost of electricity.

The electricity to be generated from the project is expected to augment the alternative renewable source in Sarawak’s energy generation portfolio. 

The floating solar plant will be integrated with the hydroelectric plant, creating value through the hybridisation of renewable technologies and optimisation of grid connection, according to Trina Solar.
