NDO - A ceremony was held on September 26 in the south-central province of Ninh Thuan to commence construction of the Phuoc Thai 1 solar farm with an estimated cost of VND1,112 billion (US$47.8 million).

The farm is located in Phuoc Thai commune of Ninh Phuoc district and has already been approved by the Prime Minister for inclusion in Vietnam’s Power Development Plan VII.

The 50-MWp project, that employs polycrystalline photovoltaic cells, includes the main farm, a substation, a transmission line and supporting facilities.

Once completed, the farm will supply nearly 81 million kW to the national power grid annually, contributing to renewable energy development and Ninh Thuan’s socio-economic development.

The Phuoc Thai 1 project is scheduled for completion in July 2020.
