The two projects have a total capacity of 255MWp.

EDPR Sunseap has completed its $284m purchase of two solar photovoltaic projects in Vietnam from local renewable energy developer Xuan Thien Group, considered to be the company’s largest utility-scale solar investment.

In a statement, EDPR said the two projects have a total capacity of 255-megawatt-peak and are under a 20-year power purchase deal at $93.5 per megawatt hour.

This will double the company’s operational capacity in Vietnam, EDPR said.
