Huawei Malaysia-JJ-LAPP MoU signing


Huawei Technologies Sdn Bhd (Huawei Malaysia) entered into partnerships with KVC Industrial Supplies Sdn Bhd (KVC Industrial Supplies) and JJ-LAPP (M) Sdn Bhd (JJ-LAPP Malaysia) recently to meet the country’s energy demands and achieve the goal of becoming a carbon neutral nation by 2050 through solar manufacturing and the deployment of solar photovoltaic (PV) technology.

Huawei Malaysia will work towards building the local ecosystem to achieve this goal by working with local partners in jointly progressing the green digital energy transition of Malaysia. This is in line with supporting Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Ismail Sabri Yaakob’s pledge for Malaysia to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.

These partnerships with KVC Industrial Supplies and JJ-LAPP Malaysia will see both partners taking on the sales, distribution and service support of Huawei’s complete range of Solar PV inverters across the country. Both parties have currently secured the role of being the main distributors of Huawei’s Solar PV Inverters in Malaysia.

Huawei Malaysia will also undertake the task of being the technology advisor for both parties and manufacture the products as well as conduct product training to support the development of clean hydrogen and other renewables technologies. Huawei, as the leader in the global smart PV market with its string inverters consistently ranked first in the world for the past six years, will complement KVC Industrial Supplies and JJ-LAPP Malaysia’s current product ranges to meet the growing demand for solar PV and energy in the country.

By integrating Huawei’s cutting-edge smart PV solutions, customers will be able to receive better and higher yields at lower costs as well as enhanced customer experience and be able to deliver optimum value.

The signings of the Memoranda of Understanding (MoU) were held recently with KVC Industrial Supplies and JJ-LAPP Malaysia in two separate ceremonies. KVC Industrial Supplies was represented by its Sales General Manager, Alvin Tan Nam Seng, while JJ-LAPP Malaysia was represented by their General Manager, Chang Chee Keong. On both occasions, Huawei Malaysia was represented by Chong Chern Peng, Vice President of Digital Power. The MoU signing ceremony with KVC was witnessed by Huawei Malaysia CEO Michael Yuan, while the MoU signing ceremony with JJ-LAPP Malaysia was witnessed by their CEO Marc von Grabowski.

“KVC has contributed more than 600MW in Malaysia for the solar PV industry. This is parallel with our values of being ‘Committed to People and the Planet.’ We strive to accelerate the nurturing of a sustainable ecosystem through strategic partnerships,” said Eddie Wong Kok Leong, Country Managing Director at KVC Industrial Supplies.

“We are proud to have established a long and successful partnership with Huawei since 2017. We achieved remarkable milestones when we worked together to deliver unprecedented carbon reductions and we believe that our comprehensive solar PV XtructureD Solutions® and extensive sales network will complement Huawei’s state of the art technology and propel us towards greater heights,” Leong added.

“We are excited to further our partnership with Huawei in Malaysia and we are looking forward to working with them as their certified Value-Added Partner and ASEAN Regional Partner. The combined expertise of Huawei, with more than 30 years of expertise in digital information technology, and JJ-LAPP Malaysia, a leading cable, connectivity and renewable energy solutions provider with extensive network and reach in ASEAN, will no doubt accelerate the growth of renewable energy solutions in Malaysia and the region,” said Keong, General Manager at JJ-LAPP Malaysia.

“Incorporating Huawei’s products with our extensive product range of solar cables, connectors and more from LAPP and other world-renowned brands has strengthened JJ-LAPP’s position as a one-stop solution provider capable of supporting a wide range of solar projects, be it residential, commercial, industry or utility. Now, as one of the main distributors of Huawei’s Solar PV solutionsin Malaysia and ASEAN we will be able to leverage our network and capabilities to seamlessly support projects both within Malaysia and those that span across multiple countries in the region,” Keong added.

According to Chong, the partnerships have enabled all parties to develop strong bonds with their clients and improve efficiency in delivering better products, solutions and services to the market.

“This is just the start. We will keep working hard to strengthen the foundation of our collaborations and we very much look forward to growing together with our partners,” he added.

Solar energy has been a key pillar of the global energy transition and has become the preferred energy source of choice due to rapid advancements of high-tech solutions that have drastically improved its accessibility, adaptability, competitive pricing, sustainability, and productivity output. With electricity consumption expected to double by 2040 in Southeast Asia, Malaysia is one of the fastest-growing solar energy markets. The demand for solar energy reciprocates the concerns of emission and pollution of high electricity consumption and is key to meeting the additional energy capacity that will be needed to fuel growth in the region’s emerging markets.
