“Thailand’s biggest winery Siam has entered a 20-year agreement with a Singapore-based solar company to install a rooftop solar system to cut down carbon dioxide emissions, the first Thai winery to do so.”

According to Cleantech Solar, the Singaporean company will install a 1MWp on-site rooftop solar system for the Thai winery, based in Hua Hin, the seaside resort in the Gulf of Thailand.

The PV system, according to Cleantech Solar, will be powered by 3,060 solar panels and is expected to generate about 26,556 MWh of clean energy over its lifetime, enabling Siam Winery to avoid 15,100 tonnes of CO2 emissions.

Archie Gracie, Siam Winery’s export, winery and supply chain director, said: “Here at Siam Winery, environment and sustainability are always at the forefront of our minds. As the leading wine producer and distributor in Southeast Asia, it is important that we lead by example in our commitment towards environmental sustainability.

“Siam Winery is delighted to partner with Cleantech Solar, who has demonstrated the depth of knowledge to operate high quality PV plants across different industries and geographies, in our sustainability journey. Through this partnership with Cleantech Solar, not only do we hope to reduce our carbon footprint, but we also hope to drive the adoption of clean solar energy in businesses across Thailand,” he added.

Raju Shukla, Cleantech Solar founder and executive chairman said,  “We are proud to be the trusted solar partner of choice by the leading wine producer in Thailand. This is a testament to our ability to deliver repeatable high-quality projects with our team of experienced solar experts present in all markets. We look forward to this meaningful partnership with Siam Winery to achieve their sustainability goals.”
