The plant has a capacity of 168MWp and total investment capital of roughly VND4.4 trillion. This is the largest scale solar power project in Vietnam so far.
Frank Phuan, CEO & Executive Director of Sunseap Group said the solar power plant is built on an area of 186 hectares in My Son commune, Ninh Son district.
With a capacity of 186MWp, the CMX Renewable Energy Vietnam solar plant is expected to supply more than 200 million kWh of electricity to the national grid every year, helping to meet the population’s power consumption demands.
After the groundbreaking ceremony, the main investor will construct the plant, which is expected to come into operation and integrate with the national grid by June 2019. When completed, the plant will provide electricity to about 200,000 households, and generate 200 jobs in the locality.
Pham Van Hau, vice chairman of NinhThuan People’s Committee said this is the fourth solar power project to have got underway in NinhThuan province this year.
