Chinese solar PV manufacturer, Trina Solar will deliver PERC modules to the 258 MW project, located in the southern province of Ninh Tuan. With an investment of around US$220 million, the project is set to be Vietnam’s largest, when completed next June.
Following on from the news that Germany-based Siemen’s will supply equipment to, and commission the 258 MW solar PV power plant in Vietnam for the Trung Nam Group, Trina Solar has now said it will provide the necessary modules.
In a statement today, the Chinese manufacturer said it would deliver 258 MW worth of its monocrystalline passivated emitter rear contact (PERC) double glass modules to what it described as Vietnam’s largest private PV project. It did not announce a timeline for this, however the project is expected to be commissioned by the end of next June.
Located in Phan Rang-Thap Cham, the project received an investment of $220 million from Vietnamese investment firm Trung Nam Group. It is the company’s first investment in solar.
Trina, which has a 1 GW solar cell manufacturing facility in Vietnam, commented, “With a huge demand for PV products, the facility is the first combined wind and solar power generation plant in Vietnam and is expected to play a key role in the country’s transformation to renewable energy.”
With a nod to the recent PV policy changes in its home market, and the various ongoing trade wars in Europe, the U.S. and now India, the manufacturer added that its production facilities located both in and outside of China are running at full capacity. “Trina Solar is expanding its supply capabilities with the aim of addressing the increasing demand for its products,” it said.
