January. 2, 2019 /PVTIME/ -- Ingeteam has
supplied its technology to a 240 MWp solar PV plant in Vietnam. The Xuan Thien
Thuan Bac PV project is the largest one that Ingeteam has supplied to date for
the solar sector in Southeast Asia.
total, this photovoltaic project, located in the province of Ninh Thuan, has an
installed power of 240 MWp. This is the first order that Ingeteam has received
from the Xuan Thien group in Vietnam which, up to now, had focussed its
activities on the construction of hydropower plants.
made by Ingeteam is a turnkey solution comprising the PV inverters and all the
low and medium voltage equipment, all supplied ready for immediate field
connection. Ingeteam has also developed the transmission substation for the Xuan Thien Thuan Bac PV
plant with a 220-kV output, and the protection, supervision and communication
systems, as well as the EVN interface and the plant control system (PPC).
2019, Vietnam has positioned itself as the market reference in Southeast Asia's
solar sector, given that it will close the year with 5.5 GW of installed PV
power, which is almost half of all the power that has been installed this year
in this region. This boost to solar energy goes hand in hand with the minimum
price guaranteed by the government in the form of a feed-in tariff.
Xuan Thien Thuan Bac PV plant, which is set to be connected at the end of
January 2020, will avoid the emission into the atmosphere of 28,000 tons of CO2
