Conergy receives 31.5 MW PV order from Thailand

Conergy expects the three photovoltaic parks to be operational shortly after the completion of SEE’s 21 MW project. Spread across the two systems, Conergy already began work on the 21 MW last autumn. They are expected to be completed and grid connected in the first quarter of the year.

All three projects are located in western Thailand, in the provinces of Suphanburi and Kanchanaburi. In addition to undertaking planning, engineering, design and installation responsibilities, Conergy will also supply the necessary components, including 130,000 photovoltaic modules. Meanwhile, it is working with local partners Annex Power and Ensys on the construction side.

"For the future, we intend to work on large-scale projects specifically and long-term with financial investors and strategic industrial customers who want to expand their portfolio like SSE with independent energy power plants. In addition to the growing Asian markets such as Thailand, we are focusing our efforts on the American solar market," stated Conergy CEO, Philip Comberg.

Overall, Conergy has completed nine photovoltaic plants worth 70 MW in Thailand, thus making it one of the markets most active players.

"According to government figures, the solar capacity installed in Thailand to date is around 370 megawatts – with a strongly rising trend. We therefore want to further increase our market share of around 10% and benefit from this growth potential, drawing on our extensive experience," said the company in a statement released.
