AME Elite building Shengda New Energy’s second plant in i-Park@Senai Airport City

PETALING JAYA: AME Elite Consortium Bhd is constructing Shengda New Energy Sdn Bhd’s second plant in i-Park@Senai Airport City, boosting its expansion plans.

The second plant, adjoining the first manufacturing facility, would expand Shengda New Energy’s products to include solar tracker slew gear (tracking driver) and solar cleaning robots.

“We note that the new plant not only increases Shengda New Energy’s total production floor space by more than 50% upon completion in June 2021, but also helps them move up the value chain and develop more advanced solutions for their international customers, in line with the rapid development of the global solar energy industry,” said AME Elite’s group managing director Kelvin Lee Chai.

The plant would also house a power station demonstration project to enable visual presentation to customers, as well as research and development (R&D) testing lines for solar tracker, battery energy storage, and solar cleaning robots.

With the second plant, Shengda New Energy has invested over RM95 million in land and buildings in Malaysia to date, with total manufacturing built-up area of about 361,100 sq ft in i-Park@Senai Airport City upon expected completion of the second plant in June 2021.

Its products are distributed mainly to the United States, as well as Australia and Chile.

AME had previously completed Shengda New Energy’s first plant in i-Park@Senai Airport City in December 2019 which manufactures solar tracking systems, including steel coil slitting, precision tubing, precision stamping, and related components.
