Germany-based juwi has begun construction on five PV plants totaling 48 MW in Thailand.
The projects are located in Kamphaeng Phet and in Ubon Ratchathani. Soleq Solar Thailand Co. Ltd., the project investor, entered into the contract with juwi last December.
In order to protect the sites from floods similar to those seen in Thailand in 2011, the plants will be equipped with comprehensive flood protection systems, juwi notes. The company will also be responsible for the solar parks' operational management once they are completed.
In all, the solar farms will have a total module area of 314,667 square meters and will produce 70.4 GWh of energy annually, which will be fed into the local grid. The plants are scheduled to be connected to the grid between July and September.
