Sharp Corp. has inked a deal with SSP of Thailand to construct a 52MW-DC large-scale solar power generation plant in the country. According to the company, construction will commence in January, with operations scheduled to start by the end of the year.

The plant will be operated by power producer SSP, which earlier placed a construction order for the project with Sharp, ITE and ITD (a construction company in Thailand). Sharp will collaborate on the design and construction of the plant and will also supply the solar modules and balance of plant (BOP) for it. When the plant comes online, the total amount of power generation capacity of Sharp solar power plants in Thailand will exceed 150MW.

The power plant will employ thin-film solar modules that offer superior performance characteristics under high temperatures. Sharp will supply nearly 400,000 of these modules along with the requisite BOP on an expansive area of about 1.3 square kilometers. Maintenance and operational control will be provided by Sharp Solar Maintenance Asia Co. Ltd (SSMA), a Sharp subsidiary. Specially trained and qualified personnel will provide operational support by inspecting and servicing the entire plant.

Sharp will continue to develop a top-to-bottom business model that includes collaborating on the design and construction of solar power plants, supplying BOP and providing maintenance and operational control services.
