Chinese inverter maker Sungrow has announced the grid connection of what it says is Thailand‘s largest floating solar plant – a 58.5 MW project in the northeastern province of Ubon Ratchathani.

The installation may be one of two projects tendered by the state-owned Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand in June 2019, to be installed at the Sirindhorn dam at the site of a 12 MW hydropower plant on the Lam Dom Noi river, although a press release issued by Sungrow yesterday did not give a precise location.

The utility said at the time of the tender, it expected to pay THB1.86 billion ($56.2 million) for the facility.

Sungrow said it supplied its SG3400HV solar inverter as well as the “floating PV system solution, including the floating body,” for the 121ha installation on a dam, which was connected this month.

Sungrow said it has already installed a 12.5 MW floating array in the Rayong province of Thailand, plus four systems with a total generation capacity of 15 MW in Suphanburi province.
