“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” a quote significantly explains why Solarvest decides to hop on this opportunity and work together with three local universities, namely Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman, Universiti Teknologi MARA, and the University of Malaya on a research programme to find out practical improvement for the design of solar system in Malaysia.
An MoU has been signed between Yoon Tien Ming, the lead of team Solarvest and Ir. Prof. Dr. Ewe Hong Tat, the President and CEO of UTAR for the mutual goals of this research project.
The research collaboration is half-funded by the Public-Private Research Network (PPRN) programme, which is an initiative by the Ministry of Higher Education to encourage joint efforts of the academics and the industry players for technology innovations, while another half is supported by Solarvest Holdings Berhad.
It is worth mentioning that the research is participated by many field experts, such as the lead researcher, Prof Ir Dr. Ong Kok Seng from Faculty of Engineering and Green Technology (UTAR Kampar) and other researchers such as Ir Ts Dr. Baljit Singh (UiTM Shah Alam), Dr. Zainoor Hailmee bin Solihin (UiTM Shah Alam) and Dr. Sajad Naghavi (UM).
Ultimately, the findings of this research will be picked-up and implemented in the system design of Solarvest’s projects.
“Many ideas grow better when transplanted into one another’s mind than to think alone. Working together with the intellectuals from the academic field brings in a lot of ingenious ideas that can elevate our engineering value to a new level. We are definitely looking forward to more collaborations like this.” said Yoon.
