Solar Rooftop Project at Gateway City Industrial Estate
19.90 MWp Floating Solar Project
With awareness of taking part in an effort toward carbon neutrality to tackle global warming, MDX Public Company Limited is set to implement the 19.90 MWp Floating Solar Project and distribute the power for internal use within Gateway City Industrial Estate. The installation will be at the estate reservoir, with capacity for up to 48.00 MWp.
Phase 1 with capacity of 19.90 MWp is expected to begin at the end of 2023, with target completion in 2025.
117.325 kWp floating solar
MDX Public Company Limited hired Ciel & Terre (France) as an expert in the design and installation of floating solar panels on the reservoir (with capacity of 7 million cubic meters on the area of around 450 Rai) for the pilot project and the studies of power production to be connected to distribution system of Provincial Electricity Authority to be used within Gateway City Industrial Estate. installation was implemented on the reservoir space of around 1 Rai.
Power production is approximately 410 kWh per day. The power will be used for the water supply system of Gateway City Industrial Estate. The past performance showed the cost saving for electricity cost of around 80,000 Baht per month or carbon dioxide reduction of around 96.15 ton CO2 per year, equivalent to forestation of around 12,018 trees or on the space of 30 Rai.
