Sungrow, a supplier of inverters for renewables, has been selected by Bouygues, a French multinational industrial group, to support the largest solar plant in Vietnam.
The 201 MW PV plant is located in Vietnam’s Ninh Thuan Province and is developed by a joint venture, BIM Group and AC Energy. It is expected to be connected to the grid in April 2019.
Under the contract, Sungrow will supply 1500V turnkey container solution, associated SCADA and PPC.
Sungrow’s turnkey solution, the SG3125HV-MV, integrates the PV inverter, transformer and RMU housed in a standard 20-foot container.
Furthermore, the container features a DC/AC ratio up to 1.5 and enables an overall cost-savings, making it the ideal solution for this 201 MW utility-scale PV plant. It reaches a peak efficiency of 99 percent and can perform without derating at 50 degrees Celsius.
For the Vietnamese market, having sustained power yield for solar farms in the scorching heat is essential for satisfactory project economics.
Vietnam is witnessing a booming solar market projected for the next few years. Sungrow has realized significant traction in this emerging market with deals approaching 1 GW of volume, including a recently installed 100 MWp project in Dak Lak province.
Sungrow opened its Vietnam branch in early 2018.
“As Vietnam’s solar market continues to proliferate, Sungrow will continue to expand our local team, product offering, and service operations for clients,” said Professor Cao Renxian, chairman of Sungrow.
