HÀ NỘI — A solar power plant funded by Japan’s Fujiwara company was inaugurated in the city of Quy Nhơn in the south-central province of Bình Đinh on August 19, with Deputy Prime Minister Trương Hòa Bình in attendance.
The VNĐ1.3 trillion (US$55.9 million) project is located at Nhơn Hội economic zone, covering 60 hectares. It is designed to have a capacity of 50 MWp.
After two years of construction, the plant was run on a trial basis starting in June 2019 and has now been put into official operation and joined the national grid.
Bình expressed his appreciation for the project, the first of its kind by Fujiwara in Việt Nam, which marks a new milestone in diplomatic and investment relations between Việt Nam and Japan.
"The project also contributes to the Government's target of increasing the production of renewable and clean energy," he said.
The Deputy PM asked Fujiwara Bình Định Co.Ltd. to operate the plant effectively and use more local workers to contribute to the local budget and economic development.
Director of Bình Định power company Huỳnh Ngọc Việt said the solar plant was connected to the 110kV Nhơn Hội power station, providing about 3,000 kWh with revenues of some VNĐ550 million. — VNS
