Trina Solar Ltd. has been chosen as the supplier of 25 MW of modules for Phase III of the 75 MW Bangchak Solar Energy Project in Thailand.
The project is owned by Bangchak Solar Energy (Nakhonratchasima) Co. Ltd. and Bangchak Solar Energy (Chaiyaphum 1) Co. Ltd. – the subsidiaries of Bangchak Solar Energy Co. Ltd. – and will be constructed by Gunkul Engineering Public Co.
“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,” says management from Bangchak Solar Energy.
Trina Solar says it expects to commence shipment late this month.
Earlier this week, Trina Solar reached an agreement to supply modules for a project in Jordan.
