The first tender coming out of Singapore's solar lead demand programme, SolarNova, has been awarded to Sunseap Leasing Pte Ltd.
The tender, covering 76MW of solar power, will cover 831 HDB blocks, and eight Ministry of Home Affairs and Public Utilities Board sites. The installation is expected to be completed by end-2017.
The tender received expressions of interest from more than 20 local and foreign companies during the tender period. A total of 14 tender bids were received from nine tenderers. SolarNova will support Singapore's plan to have 350MW of solar power in the country by 2020.
"More tenders under the programme will be called over the next four to five years," the joint release said.
The next SolarNova tender will be called in the first half of 2016.
