Thailand-based solar energy service provider Conergy and ATC Enviro, a member of the Symbior Solar group, are planning to build 19MWp of solar power plants in Prachinburi, Thailand.

The firms will partner with Ensys Group for the on-ground construction of three solar projects. Conergy will oversee engineering, design and the component supply.

Two of the three ground-mounted solar parks located in Si Maha Phot district will have 8MWp installed capacity each and the other plant located in Si Maho Sod district will have 3MWp capacity.

The plants will feature 61,260 Conergy PE310P modules, Conergy Sigma II mounting systems and 19 central inverters.

Conergy Asia & Middle East president Alexander Lenz said: "Thailand is committed to achieve ambitious renewable energy goals and reduce dependence on fossil fuels.

"These projects with Symbior highlight solar’s growing recognition and visionary companies are active partners in meeting the goal of 20% of the country’s electricity supply being produced from renewable sources by 2036."

In addition to reducing about 17,000t of CO2 emissions, the facilities will generate approximately 28,000MWh of electricity annually.

"Thailand was an ideal location for solar power generation because of the abundant, year-round sunshine and availability of suitable locations for the construction of solar power plants.

"Solar power can significantly decrease the use of fossil fuels and can therefore make a sizeable contribution to the reduction of CO2 emissions, thereby contributing to the creation of a more sustainable environment," Lenz added.
