Tier 1 solar module manufacturer, Wuxi Suntech Power Co., Ltd., announced that it will supply approximately 63 megawatts (MW) of solar panels to 8 separate Gunkul Engineering projects being constructed across Thailand. The projects are expected to be grid connected and operational by the end of 2015.
The solar plants are expected to generate 94,000 MWh of electricity per year, enough to power approximately 24,000 households, while reducing approximately 56,000 tons of carbon emissions annually.
Suntech is supplying the Gunkul Engineering projects with modules which are compatible with utility-scale size power installations.
“Suntech has shipped more than 260MW of panels to various projects throughoutThailand. Working side-by-side, in a strong partnership with Gunkul Engineering, we’re proud to continue supporting Thailand’s important solar market,” said Haibo Xiong, president of Suntech. “We have recently upgraded all our solar panels to a four busbar module. These panels are well suited for Thailand’s hot and humid climate, providing higher power performance, while reducing the probability of micro-cracks and hotspots.”
