Japan's JGC gets 49 MW PV project in Vietnam


March 5 (Solar) – Japanese engineering group JGC Corp (TYO:1963) announced today that it will build a 49-MW photovoltaic (PV) plant in Vietnam.

JCG, through its local subsidiary, signed the contract for the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) works with Gia Lai Electricity JSC (GEC), an affiliate of the Thanh Thanh Cong Group (TTC Group).

Located in the mid-south Vietnam region of Gia Lai province, the PV facility is expected to generate enough power to meet the annual demand of around 47,000 local homes. Commissioning of the 75 hectares plant is scheduled for the autumn of 2018, the company said.

Last month, GEC also signed a contract for a large-scale solar project to a Japanese company, awarding a 48-MW direct current (DC) plant to Sharp Corp (TYO:6753).

Under its 7th Power Development Plan (PDP7), Vietnam currently has a target to raise its solar power generation capacity to 12,000 MW by 2030, JGC noted.
