Vietnam firm launches country’s largest solar farm

Vietnam’s Trung Nam Group has started work on a 450-MW solar farm, the largest of its kind in the Southeast Asian country which is seeking to increase the share of renewables while reducing dependence on coal in its power mix

Located in the central coastal province of Ninh Thuan, the 14 trillion dong ($604 million) solar farm is connected to the national grid via a 17 km (10.6 miles) transmission line, also built by Trung Nam. Vietnam plans to raise the proportion of solar and wind energy in its power mix to 15 per cent-20 per cent by 2030 and to 25 per cent-30 per cent by 2045, from 10 per cent currently.
