IREX Energy joint-stock company, a member of SolarBK Holdings, plans to start exporting made-in-Viet Nam solar panels and equipment to North Asia in 2018.

The company said launching a representative office in Nanjing, China, was an initial step to promote the Vietnamese renewable-energy branding in the global solar power market with a long-term co-operative relationship with foreign partners.

In 2017, the Vung Tau City-based firm received orders to provide solar power cells, panels, installation, a smart monitoring system (Solar System Operation Centre) and guarantees for customers in North America.

IREX solar cells with total capacity of 45MWp were exported to the US, the Netherlands, UK, Singapore, Turkey, Tunisia, Japan, Malaysia, China, Hungary and Poland in 2017.

It’s expected that a total 124MWp solar cells and panels will be exported to these markets in 2018.

IREX’s high-tech renewable-energy device factory complex was built in Vung Tau City in 2017 with total investment of US$17 million and capacity of 300MWp (photo-voltaic cells) solar cells and 500MWp solar panels per 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.

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