Sino Lanka Power Gen to install solar power plant at seafood plant

25 April, 2021

Sino Lanka Power Gen has entered into a partnership with Taprobane Seafood to supply and install a one-megawatt solar photovoltaic (PV) system at their plant in Dankotuwa.

This is the first of a two-phased project with the second megawatt to be installed in two years. 

Director of Sino Lanka Power Gen, Dhiren Kundanmal said, “Combating climate change has become critical and we are delighted to team up with Taprobane Seafood to be a part of their solar expansion strategy.  Our approach is fivefold i.e., improve yields and plant performance, reduce downtime, holistic monitoring, skill transfer, and finally minimising their liability and risk.” Taprobane’s Managing Director Timothy O’Reilly said, “Shifting to solar energy is an important step in our sustainability journey and we believe Sino Lanka is the right partner for us given their expertise in the renewable energy industry.” Sino Lanka Power Gen’s vision is to support the government’s initiatives on the “Soorya Bala Sangramaya” policy statement that sets a target of meeting 70% of the country’s total electricity demand from renewable energy sources by 2030. Sino Lanka Power Gen is a joint venture between the Sino Lanka Group - an Asian enterprise with investments in real estate, hospitality, chemicals, healthcare, financial services, and rooftop solar, among others-, and the Atman Group, an investment holding company with investments in renewable energy, hospitality, real estate, and agriculture.
