By Delta Thailand - Published January 16, 2024

Delta's Smart Farm, integrating renewable energy solutions, has won the Thailand Energy Awards 2023 in the Innovation in Alternative Energy category. Dr. Prasert Sinsukprasert, the Permanent Secretary of Energy, Ministry of Energy, presented the Thailand Energy Awards 2023 to Delta, recognizing its outstanding Smart Farm with renewable energy project. The collaborative effort between Delta (Thailand), the Thailand Board of Investment (BOI), the Industrial Estate Authority of Thailand (IEAT), and Phraeksa Municipal, is dedicated to the Ngopa Paradise Community Enterprise.

Delta’s Smart Farm employs IoT-driven technologies, including the Delta Automation solution featuring VTScada facility management software and Delta’s programmable logic controllers (PLC), to ensure precision control of agricultural conditions. The microclimate system adjusts the temperature, airflow and lighting to provide the ideal environment and economize on electricity consumption. Compared with common methods requiring 40-45 days for growth, Delta’s Smart Farm allows harvesting in just 35 days with more consistent weight and quality. This enhances farming efficiency and crop productivity.

In addition, Delta features an integrated 5.4 kWp solar rooftop system and reverse osmosis water treatment system for wastewater reuse. This not only provides clean and sustainable energy but also has resulted in significant environmental benefits. The implementation has led to outstanding annual savings of up to 7,800 kWh (7.8 MWh) and the avoidance of approximately 4 tons of CO2 emissions per year.

Mr. Jackie Chang, Delta (Thailand) President, stated, "Delta's Smart Farm is a testament to our dedication to creating impactful projects that contribute to both environmental sustainability and community development. We are honored to receive the Thailand Energy Awards 2023 and remain committed to our mission to drive positive change through technological innovation."

The Thailand Energy Awards serve as a platform to celebrate and showcase exceptional achievements in the energy sector, promoting advancements in alternative and renewable energy solutions. This is the eighth year Delta has won this prestigious award from the Ministry of Energy, having previously received Thailand Energy Awards in 2013, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022.
