The German company is currently building the park for Indorama Ventures in Lop Buri, 155 km north of Bangkok. It is reportedly the first solar plant in Asia to exclusively use 100 percent of Conergys system technology.
It is expected to produce 3,500 MWh/year and, covering a total area of around 44,500 square meters, will comprise approximately 10,800 modules, 135 inverters and over 1,080 mounting systems.
Asia is a very price competitive region, but our latest project in Thailand clearly shows that quality awareness and investment security are becoming two crucial aspects for any solar project in this region. The investor community has increasingly come to understand that the true cost to generate power should be assessed in terms of cost per kWh and not cost per Wp, commented Marc Lohoff, president of Conergy Asia Pacific.
