Trina Solar to supply 25 MW of modules to Thai PV project


Thailand’s Bangchak Solar Energy Co., Ltd. has acquired the services of China’s Trina Solar to supply 25 MW of PV modules for Phase III of its 75 MW Bangchak Solar Energy Project.

The solar farm is currently being constructed by local company Gunkul Engineering Public Company, with Trina Solar expected to ship its modules towards the end of 2013. The plant is located close to the northeastern city of Nakhon Ratchasima and once complete will play its part in helping the Thai government achieve its aim of installing 1 GW of solar power by the end of 2014.

"We are very pleased to collaborate with BSE, a leading solar power plant operator in Thailand," said Trina Solar CEO and chairman, Jifan Gao. "This is a significant module supply contract for Trina Solar in Thailand and demonstrates our continued commitment to delivering on our strategy of market diversification.

"Thailand is a leading emerging solar market in South East Asia. We look forward to growing our presence in Thailand's solar market in 2014 and to contributing to the realization of a more secure, clean and independent solar energy for Thailand."

Bangchak Solar Energy's management issued a statement relating to the collaboration that read: "BSE is deeply committed to growing the number and the scale of solar power projects in Thailand to strengthen local economies and help defend against climate change.

"Trina Solar's excellent international track record combined with their high-efficiency panels, which are highly suited to Thailand's hot and humid climate, singled them out as our partner of choice."
