A solar power plant funded by Japan’s Fujiwara company was inaugurated in the city of Quy Nhon in the south-central province of Binh Dinh on August 19, with Deputy Prime Minister Truong Hoa Binh in attendance.

The VND1.3 trillion (US$55.9 million) project is located at Nhon Hoi economic zone, covering 60 hectares. It is designed to have a capacity of 50 MWp.

After two years of construction, the plant was run on a trial basis starting in June 2019 and has now been put into official operation and joined the national grid.

Binh expressed his appreciation for the project, the first of its kind by Fujiwara in Viet Nam, which marks a new milestone in diplomatic and investment relations between Viet Nam and Japan.

"The project also contributes to the Government's target of increasing the production of renewable and clean energy," he said.

The Deputy PM asked Fujiwara Binh Dinh Co.Ltd. to operate the plant effectively and use more local workers to contribute to the local budget and economic development.

Director of Binh Dinh power company Huynh Ngoc Viet said the solar plant was connected to the 110kV Nhon Hoi power station, providing about 3,000 kWh with revenues of some VND550 million. — VNS
