BANGKOK--Thailand's Siam Cement Group has developed a solar generating system designed to float on reservoirs, which are commonly used to serve factories in the country's predominantly flat central region. The system is aimed at companies seeking new energy sources for their operations.

Cholanat Yanaranop, president of SCG Chemicals, a petrochemical subsidiary of the manufacturing conglomerate, said the system will help generate power for factories which have their own ponds or reservoirs and want to use them as sites for power generation.
