Conergy has signed contracts to develop 230-megawatts of wind projects in Southeast Asia, more than doubling its capacity in the region.
These new projects include over 200 in the Philippines. 62MW in Negros Island, 50MW in Tarlac, 13MW in Pampanga, 18MW in Bais Negros, 15MW in Bulacan and 43MW at two locations in Luzon and Visayas. These, combined with 30MW of new contracts signed in Thailand and Indonesia, brings Conergy’s total new contracts confirmed in the past three months to 231MW for Southeast Asia.
In the Philippines, the 62MW portfolio is being built for Negros Island Solar Power, located in Negros Occidental, Philippines. It consists of two sites — a 48MW and a 14MW — and will power approximately 40,000 homes. Another project, built for company Raslag, is 13MW and located in Pampanga, Philippines, adding to the 10-MW plant Conergy previously built for Raslag. The final Philippine project is built for PetroSolar, sowned 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 20% of renewable energy capacity by 2036. This project, which Conergy supplied with engineering, procurement, and construction services, will be owned by B Grimm Power Ltd. Once completed, it will supply power to over 5,300 homes. Conergy will also build three projects, totaling 19MW, 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 1-MW solar installations for three towns within the East Nusa Tenggara Province — Sumba, Ende and Maumere —, enough to power 35,000 homes.
