Bangkok, Thailand, October 23, 2023 – TotalEnergies ENEOS and S. Kijchai Enterprise, a leading manufacturer of wood-based panel in Thailand, have taken further step towards decarbonization of its facility in Thailand with the development of a floating solar farm on their land to supply clean power to their facility.
This is the second signing after its solar roof project in 2019. This new project with TotalEnergies ENEOS is a 1.8 megawatt-peak (MWp) floating solar photovoltaic (PV) system in Thailand.
With over 3,000 of modules installed, the PV system is expected to generate approximately 2,650 megawatt-hours (MWh) of renewable electricity annually, realising significant cost savings for S. Kijchai and reducing the company’s carbon footprint by about 1,125 tons of CO2 emissions, equivalent to planting around 16,800 trees.
Under the agreement, TotalEnergies ENEOS will fully fund, install and operate the solar system while S. Kijchai will pay only for the electricity generated for 12 years, avoiding any upfront costs.
Elodie Renaud, Director of TotalEnergies ENEOS Renewables Distributed Generation Asia said, “As a leading solar service provider known for our robust technical experience in deploying renewable energy solutions on highly technical and complex sites, we are delighted to be trusted by S. Kijchai again as the solar energy partner of choice. This second project with S. Kijchai is particularly strategic for TotalEnergies ENEOS as it is our first floating project in APAC region, and a key reference for future development. TotalEnergies ENEOS is committed to support manufacturing companies like S. Kijchai, in driving down their carbon footprint, to support them in their transition towards clean energy.”
