Sharp Corporation has announced the completion of the construction of one of Thailand’s largest power plants.
The newly constructed 10.3MW DC power generation facility stands next to a 73.2MW DC one that was completed in March 2012. The two sites boast a combined output of approximately 84MW DC.
The plant will be operated by Natural Energy Development, a joint venture company established by Diamond Generating Asia, a wholly owned subsidiary of Mitsubishi, that controls IPP business in Southeast Asia and Taiwan. Sharp collaborated on the design and construction (EPC) of the plant with two Thai companies: major construction company Italian-Thai Development Public Company, the largest construction company in the country and its related company, ITALTHAI Engineering.
Sharp supplied 640,000 thin-film modules for the plant constructed on 2.16km2 of land. Maintenance services will be provided by Sharp Solar Maintenance Asia, a Sharp subsidiary established in March 2011. Specially trained and qualified personnel will provide operational support by inspecting and servicing the entire plant.
