China Machinery Engineering Corporation (CMEC) has been awarded a 137 million ringgit (33 million U.S. dollars) procurement contract, to supply material and equipment for a solar farm project in Malaysia.

Malaysia's engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (EPCC) solutions provider for renewable energy infrastructure Mattan Engineering said Tuesday it had appointed CMEC to be its procurement arm for the 50-Megawatt-ac solar farm project.

CMEC, who is part of China National Machinery Industry Corporation, will undertake the necessary package arrangements for the procurement and international transportation of the material and equipment including mounting structures and solar panels, according to a statement issued by Mattan.

"Over the years, CMEC has developed its reputation in the international engineering contracting field including through its involvement in the Belt and Road initiative," said Mattan's executive chairman Levin Tan during the signing ceremony.

He foresaw the appointment would enable both sides to leverage on their respective expertise, experience and resources to ensure this project is completed.

The procurement contract was part of Mattan's 285 million ringgit (69 million U.S. dollars) EPCC contract that had been awarded by Solar Management, the project owner of the solar project. Malaysia Building Society will be financing up to 247 million ringgit (60 million U.S. dollars) for the project.

The solar project is located in Negeri Sembilan, a state lying in Malaysia Peninsula's southwest coast, and is expected to complete by November 2018.
