Sharp Completes 84-Megawatt Solar Station in Thailand for NED

Sharp Corp. (6753), a Japanese maker of photovoltaic panels, completed the final stage of an 84-megawatt solar station in Thailand for Natural Energy Development Co.

The 10.3-megawatt facility is in addition to a 73.2-megawatt site completed in March 2012, Sharp said in a statement today.

NED awarded the construction order for the project to Sharp, Italian-Thai Development Pcl (ITD) and Italthai Engineering Co., according to the statement.

The Osaka-based company supplied about 640,000 thin-film solar modules that offer superior performance under high temperatures compared with crystalline solar cells, according to the statement. Sharp will also provide maintenance services for the plant.
