CoorsTek has signed a long-term agreement with TotalEnergies ENEOS for a solar photovoltaic (PV) system in Thailand.
The duo reached an agreement for 1.5 megawatt-peak (MWp) rooftop and carport. It will be installed at its 110,000 square foot manufacturing facility in Rayong.
The project is likely to to generate around 2,000 megawatt-hours (MWh) of renewable electricity annually.
According to the company, “the system will realize significant cost savings for CoorsTek and reduce the company's carbon footprint by about 840 metric tons of CO2 emissions per year.”
"We're excited to partner with TotalEnergies ENEOS to build an onsite solar system that will offset a sizeable portion of our facility's electric consumption with clean, renewable energy," CoorsTek Chief Operating Officer Andy Filson was quoted in a statement.
CoorsTek’s manufacturing facility is a production hub for the continued supply of high-quality engineered ceramics in southeast Asia.
As per the agreement, TotalEnergies ENEOS will finance, install, and operate the solar system while CoorsTek will purchase the generated solar electricity.
