LONGi Supplies 273 MW Modules for 831 MWp Solar Project in Vietnam

LONGi has successfully supplied its Hi-MO 4 Series modules for what it claims to be Southeast Asia’s largest solar plant, Phase I of the Xuan Thien Ea Sup Project in Dak Lak, Vietnam.

LONGi, a leading solar technology headquartered in Xi’an, China, has announced that it has successfully supplied its Hi-MO 4 Series modules for what it claims to be Southeast Asia’s largest solar plant, Phase I of the Xuan Thien Ea Sup Project in Dak Lak, Vietnam. Commissioned by Xuan Thien Group on November 15, 2020, the 600 MWac / 831 MWp utility-scale solar plant is estimated to have an electricity output of 1.5 billion kWh per year.

With nearly 2 million solar panels, 500 kV / 1,200 MVA transformer station and 22.2 km of 500 kV line, this is so far the largest solar power plant in Southeast Asia. The plant, which has been set up at an estimated cost of 20,000 billion dong, has been commissioned five months earlier than the scheduled date of completion due to joint efforts by the developers, logistics partners and equipment suppliers including LONGi. 

Construction of this plant started in April 2020 and LONGi signed an agreement to supply 273 MW of its modules to be used for the project in May 2020. The module manufacturer completed the delivery much before the deadline. 

Dennis She, SVP of LONGi Solar, commented, “we are proud as well as excited to be a part of this grand project by the Xuan Thien Group, offering our trusted mono-crystalline innovations. LONGi believes that technology innovations will further drive solar power cost optimisation, enabling us to drive a dramatic shift in the regional energy landscape through more such partnerships.”

The Dak Lak province, located in Vietnam‘s Central Highlands, is blessed with ample sunshine and abundant idle land — is highly suitable for solar power generation. The Xuan Thien Group, therefore, plans to scale up the capacity of this plant to 2,000 MWac / 2,800 MWp by early 2022, providing about 5 billion kWh per year for the national electricity system.
