South Asia’s Largest Solar PV Plant, Powered by Suntech, Commissioned in Thailand

Mr. Bundit Sapianchai, Senior Executive Vice President of Bangchak Petroleum Public Co., Ltd, said: “The Sunny Bangchak project represents an important step in BCP’s aim to promote a green environment and sustainable business in Thailand. Our visitor center at the site will be a landmark for renewable education in Thailand. We chose Suntech because of their excellent track record around the world and their high-efficiency panels which are specifically suited to Thailand’s hot and humid climate.” According to estimates, the project is expected to mitigate 32,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions and is expected to reduce import of 40,000 tonnes of coal annually. The project aims to achieve the Thailand government’s goal of meeting 20% of the total energy consumption from renewable energy sources from 2022.
