ĐÀ NẴNG — Vietnamese solar power manufacturer SolarBK Holdings Group and Tu Mai Ra Investment Foundation have opened the first solar power solution experience centre in Gisborne, New Zealand as the first step approaching in the renewable market in Oceania.
General director of the SolarBK Holdings Group, Nguyễn Dương Tuấn said the centre will introduce the made-in-Viet Nam solar panel and cell and renewable technology to customers in New Zealand and Oceania.
He said it offers experience visits and BigK solution – an initiative of the SolarBK in promoting green power in New Zealand.
The centre was designed with total capacity of 10.8 kWp to generate an average of 11,997 kWh per year, while reducing emissions of 9.7 tonnes of carbon to the environment.
Gisborne was chosen as the location has a monthly solar radiation average 3.68 kWh per square metre per day, according to a report from SolarBK.
Darrin Apanui, general manager of Tu Mai Ra Investments said: “We were looking to establish long-term relationships with Vietnamese companies where over time and through respect we could create what we call 'legacy relationships'.”
“We, with SolarBK, also believed that there was a very serious opportunity to develop a solar business in New Zealand that was different to the current model being used by several providers.”
SolarBK was the only Vietnamese business to participate in the InterSolar Europe 2019 event in Munich, Germany.
SolarBK Holdings has been exporting made-in-Viet Nam solar panels and equipment with total capacity of 160MWp to the US, the Netherlands, UK, Singapore, Turkey, Tunisia, Japan, Malaysia, China, Hungary and Poland since 2017. — VNS
