Dai Hai Power is developing a 100 MW solar photovoltaic (PV) project near the northwest of Buon Me Thuot City in Vietnam. The project is settled on brownfield sites, which offer excellent natural conditions for generating power from the sun.
Dai Hai Power expects to generate 150 GWh of clean energy annually.
Sungrow, a global inverter solution supplier for renewables, signed an agreement with Dai Hai Power to supply central inverters for the 100 MW solar PV project. Sungrow will supply 31 units 1500Vdc 2.5 MW central inverters. This turnkey solution with transformer and RMU is optimized for easy installation and commissioning, shortens the construction period and enables overall cost-savings.
“Dai Hai Power is excited to expand its partnership with Sungrow”, said Le Quang Minh, general director of Dai Hai Power. “We collaborated with Sungrow ten years ago and its products are still working stably on our projects. We value Sungrow’s proven performance track records and efficient commissioning features for the various domestic and international interconnection requirements.”
Vietnam is considered a booming solar with significant future growth potential. “We’ll continue executing strategies to consolidate our presence in this promising market to serve our local customers better,” said Jack Gu, president of the PV & Storage Business Division of Sungrow.
Vietnam has turned to solar power in a big way and many encouraging developments in the country’s solar sector have taken place in the past few months.
Just a few days ago, Thailand’s B.Grimm Power acquired an 80-percent stake in Vietnamese firm Phu Yen TTP Joint Stock Company.
Phu Yen TTP Joint Stock Company is involved in developing solar photovoltaic (PV) projects totaling 257 MW in Vietnam. The project is located in the Phu Yen Province of Vietnam.
In July 2018, B.Grimm Power and Vietnam’s Xuan Cau signed a development cooperation agreement for a 420 MW solar photovoltaic (PV) project located in Tay Ninh, southwest of Vietnam.
Siemens, a Germany-based supplier of transmission, distribution and smart grid solutions, recently won a contract with Trung Nam Group to supply equipment for Vietnam’s largest solar park in operation.
