Vietnam’s TTC Group has commissioned what is calls the country’s second and the largest solar power plant in Krông Pa District in Gia Lai Province. The 49 MW Krông Pa Solar power plant was developed with a total investment of over $60 million.
In October 2018, TTC Group switched on the 35 MW (48 MW DC) TTC Phong Dien Solar power plant in Thua Thien Hue province of Vietnam as the ‘first’ solar power plant in the country. It is already mulling expanding the project with another 29.5 MW (see 35 MW PV Project Online In Vietnam).
The 49 MW Krông Pa solar power plant came online on November 4, 2018 after 9 months of construction. Official inauguration was announced on December 3, 2018. TTC Group had been working on this plant through its subsidiary Gia Lai Electricity Joint Stock Company, with Japan’s JGC Corp providing EPC services (see JGC To Build 49 MW PV Plant In Vietnam).
Armed with 209,100 solar panels, the Krông Pa plant is expected to produce 103 million kWh of clean energy annually to meet electricity requirements of about 47,000 homes through the national grid. TTC Group aims to have around 1 GW of solar power capacity by 2020 (see TTC Group Planning 1 GW In Vietnam).
The Vietnamese company and its affiliates will put into operation 4 solar power plants from now until mid-2019, the company said.
