CoorsTek Selects TotalEnergies ENEOS to Provide New Solar Photovoltaic System at Thailand Manufacturing Facility

March 08 2023

Rayong, Thailand – CoorsTek, a leading global manufacturer of technical ceramics, has signed a long-term agreement with TotalEnergies ENEOS for a 1.5 megawatt-peak (MWp) rooftop and carport solar photovoltaic (PV) system at its 110,000 square foot manufacturing facility in Rayong, Thailand.

Expected to generate approximately 2,000 megawatt-hours (MWh) of renewable electricity annually, 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,” said CoorsTek Chief Operating Officer Andy Filson. “It’s truly a win/win situation that aligns with our sustainability mindset and practices. This arrangement allows us to make a positive impact on the environment as well as reduce our electricity costs.”

CoorsTek broke ground on its Rayong, Thailand manufacturing facility in January of 2021 and began operations in January of 2022. The facility provides a critical production hub for the continued supply of CoorsTek high-quality engineered ceramics in southeast Asia.
