11th September 2018 – Bangkok. Constant Energy is pleased to announce that it has executed two long term Power Purchase Agreements with Hana Microelectronics for the Group’s two factories located in Lamphun province, Thailand. Renewable power will be supplied directly from the Constant Energy rooftop-based solar PV plants located on the Hana premises.
“Alongside our large scale renewable power plants and storage business supplying to the grid, we are pressing on with our corporate PPA business, converting an increasing number of Asian-based industrials to green renewable power supply for the long term” said Franck Constant, CEO of Constant Energy. Romain Maire, Managing Director for Southeast Asia, added: “we are happy to service a leading player in the electronics manufacturing sector with Hana Microelectronics as a locally established and high quality oriented player, which has been operating in Thailand for 40 years.”
Richard Han, CEO of Hana Microelectronics said: “We wish the best for a mutually beneficial successful implementation of the solar rooftop projects for our factories in Lamphun. We have chosen Constant Energy for their long term commitment and for their professionalism. We look forward to the opening ceremony in Lamphun for the commencement of the two projects early next year.”
Engineering of the solar PV plants has already started, and the pre-construction permitting and licensing process in underway. The two plants will total 2 MW capacity, using string inverters and polycrystalline PV modules. The renewable power generation will result in a reduction of costs, combined with a reduction of CO2 emissions of 2,100 Tons per year for Hana and the Lamphun Industrial Estate as a whole. “We look forward to delivering green electrons into the two Hana Lamphun factories’ systems for many years to come”, added Romain Maire.
