Sharp Builds Mega Solar Power Plant in Ninh Thuan Province, Vietnam
Sharp Energy Solutions Corporation (SESJ)*3 announces the completion of a mega solar power plant in Ninh Thuan Province, Vietnam. The project was a collaboration with multiple partners, including T&T Group Joint Stock Company (T&T)*4 of Vietnam and T&T affiliate Ninh Thuan Energy Industry Joint Stock Company*5.
The new plant has an output of approximately 45 MW-dc, with annual power generation capacity estimated at 76,373 MWh/year. This is equivalent to the amount consumed in a year by about 40,500 average Vietnamese households. SESJ has so far constructed five solar power plants in Vietnam, for a combined capacity of approximately 245 MW-dc. This new plant will raise the total capacity to approximately 290 MW-dc. The Vietnamese government has formulated a plan*6 to raise solar power generation capacity in the country to 12,000 MW by the year 2030. SESJ will leverage the technologies and know-how it has gained from the construction of power plants and remains committed to spreading renewable energy in Vietnam.
