Bangchak Solar Energy (Nakhonratchasima) and Bangchak Solar Energy (Chaiyaphum 1), the subsidiaries of Bangchak Solar Energy (BSE), own the project, while it is being constructed by Gunkul Engineering Public Company.

Trina Solar chairman and CEO Jifan Gao said Thailand is an emerging solar market in South East Asia and the company looks forward to increase its presence in the country’s solar market in 2014.

Bangchak Solar Energy management said, "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.

"This solar project further supports Thailand’s National Energy Policy Commission’s new target of delivering 1,000 MW of solar power by 2014 and 2,000 MW of solar power through utility projects by 2021 incented by feed-in-tariffs for rooftop and community ground-mounted solar projects, signaling high-level support for Thailand’s solar sector," the management added.
