IREX Energy Joint Stock Company (JSC), a member of the Bach Khoa Solar Energy Group (SolarBK), has won orders to provide comprehensive solutions on solar power for customers during the Solar Power International Exhibition at the Mandalay Bay Conference Centre in Las Vegas, Nevada, which was held from September 10 to 14.

Executive Director of IREX, Dong Van Sen told Viet Nam News that the orders were taken during the exhibition. He said IREX was the only Vietnamese company taking part in the biggest solar power exhibition in the world.

The company will offer a One-Stop-Shop package, including solar power cells, panels, installation, a smart monitoring system (Solar System Operation Centre) and guarantees for customers in North America.

Sen said orders would reach a capacity of 300MWp (photo-voltaic cells), 40 per cent of total capacity of the company’s high-tech renewable energy device factory in the southern Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province.

“It’s the first time we have joined in the world solar-power exhibition attended by 18,000 members and 650 businesses from 80 countries. We believe our made-in-Vietnam renewable energy industry will enter deeper into the market in the coming years,” Sen said.

He said the company has opened a representative office in the US to provide service and guarantees for customers in the tough market.

He added IREX solar panels had been exported to many countries, including the Netherlands, Singapore, Turkey and the US market.

IREX Energy JSC, founded in 2012, began construction of a high-tech renewable-energy device factory complex in Ba Ria-Vung Tau costing US$17 million last year.

The complex, which includes a renewable energy factory and a research and development centre aims to boost development of the solar industry in Viet Nam and exports to the US and European markets.

The company has been developing solar-powered water heaters, wind power turbines, solar power-driven sea water filter systems and renewable use solutions. — VNS
