Germans to build Asian solar park as Spanish announce Baltic wind farm

German solar energy firm Conergy said Monday it would build Southeast Asia's largest commercial solar power plant outside of Bangkok, while a Spanish firm announced plans for a Baltic Sea wind farm.

The first part of the park in Ayutthaya, some 70 kilometres (45 miles) north of Thailand's capital, should be open by the end of July this year and it will produce one megawatt of energy, the Hamburg-based company said in a statement.

The park should be completed by the end of the year, with a total power output of three megawatts.

When fully operational, the park will produce 4,500 megawatt hours of electricity per year, equivalent to 2,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide.

However, the output is small compared to Germany, where the biggest solar park has a maximum output of 53 megawatts and can provide 15,000 families with electricity.

But the German company was not the one with “green” power news on Monday.
