Canadian Solar,  one of the world’s largest solar power companies, has announced that it achieved commercial operation on its first third-party Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) project in Vietnam. Canadian Solar provided solar modules, inverter stations and EPC services in a joint venture with IPC Technique JSC and SD668 Vietnam JSC for the 15 MW Chu Ngoc Solar Project owned by Licogi 16 JSC. 

Dr. Shawn Qu, Chairman of Canadian Solar, said, “We are pleased to have completed the project with joint efforts from IPC Technique JSC and SD668 Vietnam JSC. This partnership with Licogi 16 JSC further expands our presence in Vietnam.  We are committed to delivering more projects in Vietnam as we further expand our close to 1GWp global EPC project pipeline.”

The solar plant covers an area of approximately 43 acres and is located near Phú Túc, Dong Nai Province, Vietnam. It reached commercial operation in June 2019 and over 45,500 of Canadian Solar’s 1500V MaxPower modules were installed on fixed tilt racking systems. The solar plant will produce enough electricity to meet the needs of more than 3,800 homes and displace nearly 8,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions annually.

In  June, the manufacturer announced that it has signed a module contract with the global solar power company Solarcentury to supply 500 MW modules to Solarcentury’s two projects ‘Cabrera’ (200 MW) and ‘Talayuela Solar’ (300 MW) in Spain.

The construction for the 200 MW Cabrera project is scheduled to begin in the summer of 2019 in Alcalá de Guadaira, the Spanish region of Seville and it is expected to be connected to the grid in 2020. Once operational, the plant will produce enough electricity to power 105,000 households in the region.

The 300 MW Talayuela Solar project is scheduled to start construction later in 2019 in the Extremadura region of Talayuela in Spain and will be connected to the grid in 2020. It is expected to be one of the largest solar power plants in Europe, which will produce enough electricity to meet the needs of more than 150,000 homes.
