Minebea Cambodia announces $45M, 50MW solar farm
Japanese-owned electronics manufacturer Minebea (Cambodia) Co Ltd has unveiled plans for a $45 million 50MW solar farm to power its production and feed into the national grid, in support of eco-friendly, renewable energy source development.
Minebea Cambodia operates a single factory in the Kingdom, in the Royal Group Phnom Penh Special Economic Zone southwest of the capital’s airport.
At a meeting with Minister of Mines and Energy Suy Sem on August 23, Minebea Cambodia managing director Yoshihiro Sakanushi said his firm’s transition to renewable energy was motivated by commitments to sustainable development made by major clients and partners. He named Apple and Toyota as examples.
Sakanushi said the new project would also support investment and development projects across various sectors in Cambodia.
