Canadian Solar Inc. has signed an exclusive module supply agreement to provide 91 MW of its CS6X photovoltaic modules to Soleq Solar Co. Ltd. for power plant projects in Thailand. The solar power plants will be owned and operated by Soleq.
Juwi will provide engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services for seven projects with a total capacity of 61 MW located in the provinces of Kamphaeng Phet in the northwest and Ubon Ratchathani in the east. Bouygues Construction will provide EPC services for three projects in the Tak and Sukhothai provinces of northeast Thailand.
‘We are honored to be selected to supply our modules for Soleq's landmark power plants in Thailand,’ says Canadian Solar Chairman and CEO Shawn Qu. ‘We are also pleased with the progress of our market diversification strategy to reduce our exposure to European markets and to minimize policy risk.’
Canadian Solar says module deliveries have already commenced and are expected to be completed by the end of the year.
