Sharp has signed an agreement with NED, the wholly owned independent power producer of Mitsubishi, based in the Kingdom of Thailand, to establish 73MW of thin-film solar power generation plants. The construction of the project, which is expected to be one of the largest in the world, will begin by the end of July for completion in 2011.

The announced plant will contribute towards the government of Thailand’s target to generate up to 20% renewable energy by 2022. The amorphous/micropmorph-silicon thin-film solar cell modules to be used in the plant will be supplied partially by Sharp’s PV factory in Green Front Sakai in Sakai City, Osaka Prefecture, Japan, which began operations in March 2010.
