Photovoltaic (PV) manufacturer Trina Solar has supplied 258MW monocrystalline PERC double glass modules to a solar PV project in Vietnam.
The power station, located in Phan Rang-Thap Cham, capital of Ninh Thuan Province, has received investment from Vietnamese investment firm Trung Nam Group. Construction is scheduled to be completed by June 30, 2019.
The power station, backed by an investment of approx. $220 million, covers 264 hectares. The facility is the first combined wind and solar power generation plant in Vietnam and is expected to play a key role in the country’s transformation to renewable energy.
Trina Solar has built a 1GW solar cell production facility in Vietnam.
“Trina Solar-branded products will become increasingly available in Vietnam, helping boost the company’s sales in the APAC region,” Yin Rongfang, vice president and head of global sales and marketing at Trina Solar, said.
The company’s accumulated shipments totaled 32GW in 2017, ranking the firm the first among module manufacturers worldwide.
Trina Solar’s shipments reached more than 9GW, over 60 percent of which were delivered to locations outside of the PV manufacturer’s home market.
Trina Solar is expanding into overseas markets as part of its long-term development plan and strategy of balancing its focus in both traditional and emerging markets.
