Conergy wins order for 21 MW solar parks in Thailand
Oct 17, 2013 - German solar systems producer Conergy AG (ETR:CGYK) said today it has been awarded a contract for the construction of two solar parks with a total capacity of 21 MW in Thailand for Siam Solar Energy 1, a subsidiary of Thai Solar Energy.
Adding the new order, Conergy will expand its solar power capacity in Thailand to 100 MW in a total of 11 solar parks, which comprises 20% of the country's market share.
Conergy will plan, develop and supply the components for the solar facilities located in the Suphanburi and Kanchanaburi provinces, 130 km (80 miles) northwest of Bangkok. The company will cooperate with local partner Ensys Group for the installation. The parks will be completed by the end of 2013.
The power facilities are expected to generate around 30,000 MWh annually and save some 16,500 tonnes of CO2 emissions, according to the company. The solar modules will cover an area of around 370,000 square metres (4 million sq ft).
Conergy had previously built for Siam Solar Energy 1 solar parks of a combined 51.5 MW. The Thai company will reach 85 MW of solar projects with the completion of the two parks.
