Hexagon Peak and Inpos to Build Largest Rooftop Solar System in Vietnam

Hexagon Peak has entered into a PPA with NWIT for the largest rooftop solar system in Vietnam with a nominal power output of 6 MWp to be built by Inpos.

Hexagon Peak, the project development arm of Hexagon Holdings Singapore, has announced that the company has entered into a long term Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with New Wing Interconnect Technology (NWIT), a fully owned subsidiary of Foxconn Group for the largest rooftop solar system in Vietnam with a nominal power output of 6 MWp to be built by Inpos. The system is to be located at New Wing’s manufacturing facility near Hanoi, Vietnam.

The solar system is part of the efforts of NWIT to reduce its CO2 footprint and transition into sustainable and green manufacturing.

Hoang Van Thuy – Vice Director of New Wing Interconnect Technology said “we have been in Vietnam since 2007 and we always aim to create a professional, clean, and green working environment for our employees. The goal of our company is to use 100 percent clean energy in the future, therefore we cooperate with Hexagon Peak to build the largest rooftop solar system in Vietnam.”

The project will avoid 113,520 tons of CO2 emissions in the atmosphere and will generate electricity, sufficient to cover 25 percent of NWIT’s current manufacturing operations.

Dat Le – Managing Director of Hexagon Peak Vietnam said “we are thrilled to be selected as a solar partner of NWIT. By teaming up with INPOS for this project, we are excited to apply the highest industry standards in safety and reliability for the system.”

Dzung Nguyen – Vice Director of INPOS added “rooftop solar is becoming more and more popular in Vietnam, contributing to the development of our country economically and environmentally and INPOS is doing its part to make our dream of leaving the world better than we found it come true.”

Recently, we had reported that Risen Energy will provide EPC services for Xinghai Group’s 4/5 solar project (totaling 250 MW) in Loc Ninh, Vietnam, and is expected to complete shipment this December. The facility, one of the largest privately-funded EPC projects worldwide, will help the company further improve its competitiveness in the Vietnamese market once it has been successfully connected to the grid.
