Sunsep completes 168MWp solar farm in Vietnam

It can power approximately 192,000 homes and reduce carbon emissions by about 240,000 tonnes annually.

Sunseap International, a unit of Singapore’s clean energy provider Sunseap Group, has completed the construction of one of Vietnam’s largest solar farms, an announcement revealed.

The solar farm was jointly developed with infrastructure development and investment firm InfraCo Asia. The plant in Ninh Thuan province, on the south-central coast of Vietnam, will generate 168MWp of solar energy, which is enough to power approximately 192,000 homes and reduce carbon emissions by about 240,000 tonnes annually.

This commissioning reflects an important milestone in accordance with the 20-year solar power purchase agreement (PPA) announced in H2 2018.

As part of the contract, the project will sell the electricity at a solar feed-in tariff of $0.0935/kWh as the solar farm was completed and connected to the national grid prior to the 30 June deadline.

“Construction of the solar farm has been economically beneficial to the local Vietnamese communities as it created employment opportunities for more than 2,000 workers,” the parties noted. Sunseap and InfraCo Asia have reportedly contributed $130,000 (VND3b) as part of their corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative to fund the construction of concrete roads surrounding the site along Phu Thuan Hamlet and Tan My Hamlet, My Son Commune, Ninh Son District.
