The Hoa Hoi solar power plant officially opened in the central coastal province of Phu Yen on Tuesday.

The plant, a joint venture between the Truong Thanh Viet Nam Group JSC and Thailand’s B Grimm Power Pcl, has total investment of over VND4.9 trillion (US$210.7 million) funded by the Phu Yen TTP JSC.

This was the biggest renewable energy project in the central region, said Dang Trung Kien, chairman of the Phu Yen TTP JSC, adding that the plant was expected to help boost socio-economic development, ensuring national energy security and generating jobs for local labourers.

Construction of the 265ha plant with a capacity of 257MWP started in November 2018.

Tran Huu The, vice chairman of the provincial People’s Committee, urged the investor to run the project effectively, abide by environmental regulations and pay attention to social welfare.

Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has also designated the plant as a key project in Phu Yen’s socio-economic development master plan until 2020. — VNS
