TotalEnergies ENEOS and PTT Global Chemical Celebrate the Completion of 6.7 Megawatt-Peak Solar Rooftop Project in Thailand

TotalEnergies ENEOS and PTT Global Chemical (GC) celebrated the official launching of a total capacity of 6.7 megawatt-peak (MWp) solar photovoltaic (PV) system for GC’s 5 production facilities in Thailand. GC is Thailand’s largest integrated petrochemical and refining business and a leading corporation in the Asia-Pacific region, with a target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions for 20 percent by 2030 on its journey towards achieving Net Zero emissions by 2050.

As a global chemical company committed to creating a better quality of life for all, the installation of the solar rooftops further demonstrates GC Group’s commitment to reduce their carbon footprint and fulfill their sustainability targets while saving power costs, without any business disruption. GC is collaborating with TotalEnergies ENEOS, known for their robust technical experience in deploying renewable energy solutions on highly technical and complex sites, to support them in their transition towards clean energy.

With over 11,000 of solar panels installed onto the rooftops of the company’s 5 facilities, the 6.7 MWp PV systems generates approximately 9,500 megawatt-hours (MWh) of renewable energy annually, realising significant cost savings for GC and reducing the company’s carbon footprint by about 4,300 tonnes of CO2 emissions annually, equivalent to planting more than 64,500 trees over the contract period.

Under the agreement, TotalEnergies ENEOS operates the installed PV solar system while GC promptly buys the electricity generated for 20 years, without taking any upfront investments. TotalEnergies ENEOS guarantees the best performance of the system so GC can enjoy the economic and environmental benefits of the solar rooftop system, without any operational concerns.

Panchoak Auetanapa, Acting Senior Vice President of Utilities Business Unit PTT Global Chemical Public Company Limited (GC) said, “GC is aware of global warming problems, we committed to develop and utilize the clean energy to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions to slow down the climate crisis. We intend to implement the renewable energy projects to cover all potential space of GC Group. This will transform our petrochemical plants to be a low carbon process and produce the low carbon products which pass on this value to customers who use GC’s products. And the end consumers would be a part to make the environmental sustainability together. The cooperation between GC and TotalEnergies ENEOS would be a good starting point for both companies that have shown our strong commitment to be a part of many other leading companies in the world, to reduce the impact of climate change and ready to support the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions to achieve the goal of Net Zero together.”

Elodie Renaud, Director of TotalEnergies ENEOS Renewables Distributed Generation Asia, congratulates both GC and TotalEnergies ENEOS teams on the successful launch of the system and said, “We are honoured to be trusted by PTT Global Chemical to be a long-term energy partner on this 6.7 MWp project and support the company on their decarbonization journey. As the leading provider of solar solutions in the region, TotalEnergies ENEOS commits on the quality and reliability of our operations over the 20 years to provide peace of mind from a technical, financial, and commercial perspective. We are proud to celebrate this project as a key milestone of a long-term partnership with PTT Global Chemical.”
