Sunseap, the leading Singaporean clean-Energy service provider has competed its solar farm project in Vietnam ahead of schedule. Located on the south-central coast of Vietnam, Ninh Thuan Province, the solar farm costs USD 150 million.
The solar farm is projected to generate 168 megawatt-peak (MWp) to power approximately 192,000 homes and reduce carbon emissions by about 240,000 tons every year. The plant was connected to the Vietnam National power grid right after the completion on 30 June, 2019.
This project is a cooperation between the Sunseap Group and InfraCo Asia, a part of the Private Infrastructure Development Group (PIDG) funded by government of the UK, the Netherlands, Switzerland and Australia. PIDG funded the project while Sunseap provided expertise and develop the plant. The Sunseap – PIDG Venture also contribute up to USD 129,000 to improve concrete roads surrounding the project’s site, as part of their corporate social responsibility program.
