An unspecified number of projects totalling 5.5 MW are to use Astronergy’s Polycrystalline PV modules and inverters from Chint Power System in PV plants to be built in Saraburi province, Thailand. BOS components will be supplied from other Chint subsidiaries. The Chint Group companies have teamed with Thailand’s Solar Park Co for the projects.
“Solar energy could soon be a key energy source in Thailand. Considering its strong demand in energy and rising prices of imported oil or coal, PV is an excellent way to contribute energy without any other emissions,” commented Dr. Liyou Yang, CEO at Astronergy. “We have seen the great effort that the Thailand government has made recently and its clear vision for the future. It increases our confidence in investing in Thailand, and we are sure we can bring more cutting-edge PV products to Thailand through successful cooperation.”
The projects are set to start commercial operation at the end of December, 2011.
