BKK1’s Silvertown Metropolitan To Be Powered By Solar Panels



Kamworks Utility—a Dutch-founded solar energy provider—will install and operate a solar power system to power Silvertown Metropolitan, a 110-unit serviced apartment tower in BKK1.

According to Ken Bradley, Kamworks’ Director of Business Development, this is the first commercial solar power system on a high-end residential tower in Cambodia.

“The system investment is $66,000, which is being financed with [proceeds from] a group of Kamworks Utility projects being developed in Cambodia in early 2017,” Bradley said. “Kamworks Utility will own the project for 25 years and be responsible for insuring and maintaining the solar system.”

Bradley estimates that the project will offset 56 tonnes of harmful carbon dioxide emissions annually. The installation is expected to be completed by early 2017.
