1.4 GW PV Plants to Operate with Sungrow Inverter Solutions
Sungrow, the global leading inverter solution supplier for renewables, announced that 1.4 GW PV plants in Vietnam utilizing its inverter solutions were grid-connected before 30 June 2019 as planned, significantly increasing Vietnamese renewable generation at large.
Under the Vietnam’s Feed-in Tariff (FIT) scheme of developing solar energy, all solar projects began simultaneously with completion required before 30 June 2019 under a considerably short schedule, in order to get preferential feed-in tariffs from the government.
Sungrow delivered inverter solutions for near 30 solar plants in 10 provinces of Vietnam totaling 1.4 GW, most of which are 1500Vdc systems including inverters, MV transformers, RMUs, local SCADA and PPC. The team completed the ambitious timeline of delivering successful commissioning on time which exceeded expectations of all stakeholders.
“In response to extremely challenging situations, in particular complicated grid codes and geographical conditions, we called for supports from global service team as well as local service partners,” said Michael Zhang, Regional Manager of Sungrow APAC Region. “We’re dedicated to boosting the step to grid parity with optimal products, services and prompt delivery in Vietnam and elsewhere across the globe, for the sake of decarbonized economy and community,” he added.
“We appreciate Sungrow’s sustainable success through the excellent performance on grid connection, highest priority on quality and safety. The changeover to renewable energy supply is crucial for the future, and we’ll keep the ongoing partnership together,” said Mr. Le Quang Minh, CEO from Daihai Power.
Notably in late June, Sungrow signed a contract with BAC Phuong Solar to supply the 6.8 MW turnkey solution to a 25 MWp project in Ninh Thuan province, demonstrating that the Company is poised to contribute to the next round of Vietnam’s PV program.
