Looking to continue expanding internationally, juwi has taken further steps to ensure that its presence is found in more locales. The company recently entered the Southeast Asian solar market with its new subsidiary, juwi Renewable Energies. The subsidiary will set up headquarters in Singapore and support customers throughout the Asia-Pacific region.
juwi noted that the subsidiary’s first turn key projects in 2012 are planned for Thailand and Malaysia, where it plans to develop, finance and operate the renewable energy projects. The company advised that its current focus lies in the Thai and Malaysian PV-markets, with the Philippines, Indonesia, Japan, Australia and China able to offer substantial growth.
“Thailand and Malaysia offer attractive conditions for the PV industry, and 100% renewable energies are achievable much earlier than many people are aware of. We are passionate to contribute with our international experience to unlock the enormous potential of renewable energies in the region”, emphasizes Amiram Roth-Deblon, juwi regional director of the Asia-Pacific region.
juwi also expanded in South Africa with a new office in Cape Town. The company advised that the rapid pace of growth in the region prompted it to expand from one full-time employee to a team of 17 working on projects in the country.
