Sharp Installs Solar Power Systems on Rooftops of Two MinebeaMitsumi*1 Plants in Thailand
Contributing to reduction of GHG emissions by 5MW-dc of solar power capacity
Sharp Energy Solutions Corporation (SESJ)*2 has successfully installed solar power systems on the rooftops of two plants in Thailand run by MinebeaMitsumi Inc. The plants are the Bang Pa-in Plant in Ayutthaya Province and the Lopburi Plant in Lopburi Province.
MinebeaMitsumi plans to install solar power systems in its facilities worldwide, as part of an environmental move towards reducing greenhouse gas emissions from its operations. The installations in Thailand are the first steps in that aim. On January 15, 2021, an opening ceremony was held at the Bang Pa-in Plant to mark the completion of the installation.
The Bang Pa-in system has an output of 3.12 MW-dc, which, together with the 1.88 MW-dc output for the Lopburi system, have a combined output of 5 MW-dc—one of the largest solar power systems installed by SESJ on factory rooftops in Thailand*3.
The Bang Pa-in Plant will generate approximately 4,284 MWh annually, with approximately 2,583 MWh from the Lopburi Plant. This translates to an annual reduction in greenhouse gases of roughly 2,438 t-CO2 and 1,470 t-CO2, respectively. The generated electricity will be used within the plants, allowing them to reduce the amount of electricity they purchase from the grid.
SESJ is ever more committed to contributing to further expansion of renewable energy worldwide.
