Banpu donates “Portable Solar Power Generators” worth THB 850,000 to the residents of Mukawa, Japan
On 27 March 2019, Banpu Public Company Limited, a leading integrated energy solutions company in Asia-Pacific, led by Mr. Wataru Shima, Chief Executive Officer of Banpu Power (Japan) Co. Ltd., Tokyo branch, presented 5 “Portable Solar Power Generators” worth THB 850,000 to Mr. Yoshiyuki Takenaka, the Mayor of Mukawa, who received the donation on behalf of Mukawa residents.
Banpu operates the solar power plant in Mukawa through investment in Banpu Power Public Company Limited. In September 2018, an earthquake hit Hokkaido and caused an island-wide blackout. The residents of Mukawa were also affected by the outage. Realizing the impact of such incident and the importance of an access to the power supply on a daily basis, Banpu donated “Portable Solar Power Generators” to generate and store electricity for the residents of Mukawa, which will help provide reliable power from a renewable energy source both during normal times and times of disaster. This support is aligned with Banpu’s Social Responsibility Policy aiming to create benefits for society and community through delivery of sustainable energy and also demonstrates that Banpu is a good corporate citizen in all countries where the Company operates.
Banpu Public Company Limited is a leading integrated energy solutions company in the Asia Pacific operating three core groups of businesses – energy resources, energy generation, and energy technology – in ten countries: Thailand, Indonesia, China, Australia, Lao PDR, Mongolia, Singapore, Japan, the United States of America and Vietnam.
