Phoenix Solar Singapore has placed an order with Schott Solar for 67,000 PV modules, equivalent to approximately 16MW for two projects being developed near Bangkok, Thailand since June, 2011. The contract on supplying these modules was said to have been negotiated at this year’s Intersolar Europe. The two installations are expected to go into operation by the end of the year.
“We have signed contracts to supply modules with a capacity in excess of 50MW peak for large international projects over the last few months,” said Dr. Martin Heming, CEO of Schott Solar AG. “Our local presence in the international markets and previous experience in managing large projects were both crucial factors in convincing our partner to choose us.”
Schott Solar said that it is supplying Phoenix Solar Singapore with polycrystalline modules from the it’s ‘PERFORM POLY 2xx’ series to Thailand between June and September, 2011. The two plant PV power plants are expected to achieve peak output of 9.7 and 6.2MWp, respectively. From December 2011 on, the plants are expected to supply an annual yield of around 25,000MWh of electricity.
The project owner is, Solarta, a joint venture between Yanhee Solar Power Co and the independent power supplier Ratchaburi Electricity Generating Holding.
