Conergy announces 231 MW of new solar project contracts signed in Southeast Asia, bringing the company to a total of 400 MW. The new projects will be distributed in the Philippines, Thailand, and Indonesia.

Over 200MW of the latest signed projects will be located in the Philippines: 62 MWp in Negros Island, 50 MWp in Tarlac, 13 MWp in Pampanga, 18 MWp in Bais Negros, 15 MWp in Bulacan and 43 MWp at two locations in Luzon and Visayas. These, combined with 30 MWp of new contracts signed in Thailand and Indonesia, brings Conergy’s total new contracts confirmed in the past three months to 231 MWp for Southeast Asia.

In the Philippines, Conergy is constructing its largest of these new projects and is the clear top solar market leader in the nation. The largest project is a 62 MWp portfolio being built for Negros Island Solar Power, located in Negros Occidental, Philippines. It consists of two sites — a 48 MW and a 14 MW — and will power approximately 40,000 homes. Another project, built for company Raslag, is 13 MW and located in Pampanga, Philippines, adding to the 10 MW plant Conergy previously built for Raslag. The final Philippine project is built for PetroSolar, the latest addition to Conergy’s growing list of Philippine customers. PetroSolar is owned by PetroGreen Energy Corporation and EEI Power Corporation.

In Thailand, an 8 MW project will be built in Sa Kaeo province, where the government has publicly-stated goals to get to 20MW of renewable energy by 2036. This project, which Conergy supplied with engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) services, will be owned by B Grimm Power Ltd. Once completed, this project will supply power to over 5,300 homes. Conergy will also build three projects, totaling 19 MW, in Prachinburi, Thailand, a scenic Eastern province that is famous for production of high-quality bamboo furniture. The project will be owned by Symbior Solar.

In Indonesia, Conergy is constructing three 1MW solar installations for three towns within the East Nusa Tenggara Province — Sumba, Ende and Maumere —, enough to power 35,000 homes.

“Southeast Asia is an ideal location for solar because of their year-round sunshine and abundance of space that is suitable for solar,” said Andrew de Pass, CEO of Conergy. “At Conergy, everything we do is inspired by our mission to preserve the planet and power the world.”
