Largest solar power project in Southeast Asia launched in Tay NinhTuesday, September 10,2019
AsemconnectVietnam - The Dau Tieng PV solar power complex, the largest of its kind in Southeast Asia, has been put into operation in the southern province of Tay Ninh.
The complex, comprising two solar power plants with a combined capacity of 420 MW, was inaugurated on September 7 in the presence of former President Nguyen Minh Triet and Head of the Party Central Committee’s Economic Commission Nguyen Van Binh.
Developed by Vietnam’s Xuan Cau Holdings and Thailand’s B.Grimm Power Public Co., Ltd., the complex covers an area of 504 hectares within the semi-submerged land at Dau Tieng Lake. It has an investment of about 9.1 trillion VND (391.3 million USD).
The project is capable of supplying around 688 million kWh per year to the national grid, equivalent to the annual electricity consumption of nearly 320,000 households.
In his remarks at the opening ceremony, Binh said the project pioneers in unlocking the province’s great potential in solar power and following the government’s policy to promote the development of renewable energy. It also demonstrates the effective cooperation between Vietnam and Thailand, he added.
The new project has made Tay Ninh among the country’s hubs of solar power and contributed to ensuring the national energy security and meeting local demand, he said.
