Hoang Son Trading Investment Joint Stock Company will partner with Univergy Solar, a Spanish-Japanese joint venture, to develop a VND2.6 trillion (US$118 million) solar power plant in the central province of Thanh Hoa.

Leaders of the local company and a representative of Univergy held a working meeting with the provincial government on Tuesday to discuss the project.

The solar power plant is designed with capacity of 90MW, covering an area of some 1.5 million sq.m in Ngoc Lac District’s Kien Tho Commune. It will include a three-storey office building, warehouses, canteens for workers, sports facilities and other technical and supporting facilities.

At the meeting, CEO of Univergy Solar JSC Fernando Davila said the company is a developer of renewable energy -- solar power, wind power, small power stations and geothermal power -- in Japan.

In 2017, the company has placed emphasis on the development of solar projects in Viet Nam, he said, adding that Univergy Solar is providing technology and equipment for Hoang Son to develop the solar plant project in Thanh Hoa.

Nguyen Dinh Xung, chairman of Thanh Hoa People’s Committee, pledged to support and create favourable conditions for Univergy Solar in particular and other investors in general. He also asked relevant agencies to help the investor complete procedures as required by law. — VNS
