Large 49 MW-dc output enough to power 38,762 households*1

Sharp Energy Solutions Corporation (SESJ)*2 announces the completion of a mega solar power plant in Quang Ngai Province, Vietnam. The project was a collaboration with multiple partners, including Sermsang Power Corporation (SSP)*3 of Thailand, and SSP affiliate Truong Than Quang Ngai Power and High Technology Joint Stock Company*4. Operations at the new mega plant will start in early June.

The new plant has an output of approximately 49 MW-dc, with annual power generation capacity estimated at 73,143 MWh/year. This is equivalent to the amount consumed in a year by 38,762 average Vietnamese households. Sharp has so far constructed three solar power plants in Vietnam, for a combined capacity of approximately 146 MW-dc. This new plant will raise the total capacity to approximately 195 MW-dc.

The Vietnamese government has formulated a plan*5 to raise solar power generation capacity in the country to 12,000 MW by the year 2030. Sharp remains committed to spreading renewable energy in Vietnam.
