A panorama of solar farms
Bouygues Thai, in cooperation with Bouygues Energies and Services and the local contractor McTric designed and built 4 new solar farms in Ayutthaya, 100km north of Bangkok (Thailand). These farms are the first built by the Bouygues Group with the technology of thin film solar cells, that are very well suited for hot climates such as Thaïland.
These 4 farms provide together up to 18MW of electricity per year, which are injected into the national grid. This is the second project Bouygues Thai delivers to its client Primeroad after the successful handover of the Amata solar farm for 8MW in 2015.
In the span of 4 months, 8,405 concrete piles were installed to support 1,319 tables on which were fixed 201,720 solar panels. Without forgetting the 63km of trenches that were dug and the 162km of cables that were installed. More than 500 staff worked at the same time to make sure the project was delivered in this tight timeframe.
