Sharp Corp. has signed an agreement with NED to establish a 73 MW solar power plant in Thailand, with a 33.3% stake owned by DGA, a wholly owned subsidiary company of Mitsubishi Corp. Sharp will also supply thin-film solar cell modules and surrounding systems for the plant.
The construction of the solar power generation plant will start this month, and the operation is planned to start by the end of 2011. NED is an independent power producer in Thailand. Sharp will collaborate with ITD/ITE on the design and construction of the plant.
