The Truong Thanh group of Vietnam and its Thai partner – Bgrimm Power, held a ground-breaking ceremony on November 17 for their solar power plant in Hoa Hoi commune, Phu Hoa district, the central province of Phu Yen.
The Hoa Hoi plant, the first solar power plant in Phu Yen, has a capacity of 256 MWp, and is the largest among Truong Thanh’s solar power projects. It is designated by the Prime Minister as a key project in Phu Yen’s socio-economic development master plan to 2020.
Total investment in the plant is estimated at over 4.9 trillion VND (approximately 212 million USD).
Truong Thanh’s chairman Dang Trung Kien said the plant will contribute to the country’s energy security while creating jobs for local workers and resources for the local budget.
Construction of the plant is scheduled to be completed in the second quarter of 2019.
According to Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee, the provincial administration has submitted to the Ministry of Industry and Trade for approval a proposal to add 16 solar power plants with total capacity of 1,059.57 MWp to the power development plan.
