Phnom Penh, Cambodia, 20 January 2022 – Cambodia’s first pure natural mineral water producer furthers its commitment to sustainable growth in partnership with TotalEnergies. Kulara Water, the leading pure natural mineral water producer in Cambodia, has commissioned TotalEnergies to design, install and operate the solar energy and energy storage solution for their bottling facility in Siem Reap Province.
The innovative system combines a hybrid of solar energy and battery storage, providing energy continuously. This includes an on-site 650 kilowatt-peak (kWp) ground-mounted solar system connected to an 896 kilowatt-hours (kWh) battery system.
Solar energy is used during the day and excess power is stored in the batteries for use during the night. The installation of the system was completed on 3 January 2022 and will improve Kulara Water’s energy efficiency, reduce power costs and ensure better access to the power supply.
TotalEnergies will remain in partnership with Kulara Water for the next 15 years to ensure the safe production and storage of energy in the system.
This project is the latest environmental impact project by Kulara Water, which are widely recognized for their commitment to social and environmental impact as a keystone of their corporate strategy.
Margaret Forey, Chairwoman of Kulara Water, said, “We are very proud of this project and grateful for our partnership with TotalEnergies. This project represents the latest achievement in our sustainability strategy and is just the beginning of our adoption of solar energy solutions to power our operations.”
Gavin Adda, Head of TotalEnergies Renewables Distributed Generation Asia said, “With a strong, growing presence in Asia, and trusted by companies such as Kulara Water as the solar energy partner of choice, TotalEnergies provides a solution that fulfills both environmental sustainability and cost-saving goals. As a leading solar service provider for commercial and industrial businesses, we look forward to supporting manufacturing companies, such as Kulara Water, in driving down their carbon footprint, and using our global experts of tailor-made renewable solutions for any business energy needs”.
