Q CELLS has supplied solar modules to two large rooftop projects in Thailand to help strengthen the Company's growing presence in this and other Southeast Asian solar markets.
The flagship project is a 114.66kWp system completed in November using 294 Q CELLS Q.PEAK DUO L-G5 390 W modules. The project comprises a number of rooftop installations clustered in a rural part of Chiang Mai Province. The project has been funded by the Mae Fah Luang Foundation, which is a non-profit organization set up by Princess Srinagarindra, the late mother of former Thai King, Bhumibol Adulyadej.
Another flagship project that Q CELLS has been involved in is located in Lopburi in the heart of Thailand, some 150 km from Bangkok. It is here where a 100.32kWp solar system has been installed at the Thepsatri Rajabhat University using 304 Q.POWER L-G5 330 Wp solar modules from Q CELLS. The University is one of Thailand's most respected higher education establishments, and has benefited greatly from the income generated from the solar system since its connection to the grid earlier this year.
Mr. CJ Ban, Head of Asian and Emerging Market Sales for Q CELLS, said: "I am extremely pleased to have finalized these projects. Our partnership with the Mae Fah Luang Foundation is, I believe, a sign of just how highly Q CELLS modules are considered in Thailand for their quality and performance. We hope to continue our partnership with this Foundation, as well as to seek opportunities to enter into other partnerships in Thailand so that Q CELLS' reputation for excellence can reach a wider audience."
