Chinese solar module manufacturer Risen Energy Co., Ltd. announced that the NHI HA 50 MW solar power station project owned by Vietnam-based Bitexco Group's subsidiary Thap Cham Solar, from which Risen Energy won the bid last October, has been connected to the grid. The facility benefits from the country's nationwide feed-in-tariff (FiT) subsidy for PV installations.
Bitexco Group is one of the top ten shopping mall and hotel developers in Vietnam, in addition to being a provider of hydraulic engineering as well as road and highway engineering services. Its subsidiary's 50 MW facility is located in Ninh Thuan. Risen Energy, the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor, provided the facility with 5 main-grid 1500 V high-voltage components. According to the company, the facility will also further improve and optimize the local energy structure in Vietnam.
Prior to this project, Risen Energy's 61 MW PV project with Tasco, a Vietnam-based company, had also been connected to the grid. 85 percent of the PV power stations (when measured by size) belong to the country's public utilities. Vietnam is set to achieve installed capacity of 12 GW of PV plants by 2030.
