Constant Energy completes a new project with Thai Union group – Pakfood PCL much earlier than planned despite the COVID environment

June 1st, 2021 – Thailand. Constant Energy energized one of the 5 corporate PPA projects it executed with Thai Union Group, a world leader in the manufacturing and sale of frozen & canned seafood. The 514.08 kWp solar roof located in Samut Sakhon province was completed 2 weeks ahead of schedule, despite the challenging circumstances caused by the corona pandemic in Thailand. It will support Pakfood in reducing carbon emission as well as substantially cutting electricity costs.

This project features the Enhanced Health & Safety and High-Quality features developed by Constant Energy and renowned HSE consultants, enabling among the highest safety levels for work at height and solar roof engineering, construction, and operation.

The completion ceremony was held on 7th June, online, in view of the current traveling restrictions and necessary safety prevention measures. This e-ceremony was held to celebrate this achievement and show appreciation to both the Thai Union group and Constant Energy team.

Franck Constant, founder, and CEO of Constant Energy said “I would like to thank our team for the unwavering commitment to make this project happen ahead of time despite the difficult COVID environment. We have definitely kept in mind the concerns of roof owners for a fast completion to reduce electricity cost and carbon footprints while deploying the solar rooftop system early and safely. On this first project; Pakfood in Samut Sakhon, we delivered on our promises to provide our clients with the technical & economic benefits of the solar system and to accelerate the working process to meet their needs. We could start the operation of Pakfood project two weeks earlier than we originally planned even though COVID-19 conditions are affecting the industry. The reduction of carbon emissions provided by this project is 8,874 tons over this solar PV system’s lifetime.”
