Canadian Solar in 91MW Thai deal

Canadian Solar will supply 91MW of its modules for PV plants that Southeast Asian energy producer Soleq Solar plans to own and operate in Thailand, it said in a statement.

German engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services provider Juwi will build 61MW of PV for Soleq Solar at seven sites in Kamphaeng Phet province, north of Bangkok, and Ubon Ratchathani province, which borders southern Laos.

Meanwhile, France’s Bouygues Construction will provide EPC services for three installations in Tak province, near the Myanmar border, and Sukhothai province, north of the Thai capital.

Canadian Solar said it has already started shipping the CS6X PV panels and will likely complete delivery in the fourth quarter. The Ontario-based module maker, which handles most of its production in China, did not reveal the terms of the deal.

Juwi told Rechargelast month that it expects to develop between 200MW and 300MW of PV projects this year.

In April, Bouygues announced a €38m ($49.8m) deal to design, build and operate 30MW of solar plants in northeast Thailand with Soleq Solar, which has offices in Bangkok and Singapore.
