LONGi has successfully delivered its Hi-MO 4 Series modules for the supposedly largest solar plant in Southeast Asia, Phase I of the Xuan Thien Ea Sup project in Dak Lak, Vietnam.
LONGi, a leading solar technology headquartered in Xi'an, China, has announced that it has successfully delivered its Hi-MO 4 series modules for what is believed to be the largest solar array in Southeast Asia, Phase I of the Xuan Thien Ea Sup project in Dak Lak, Vietnam. The 600 MWac / 831 MWp utility-scale solar system put into operation by the Xuan Thien Group on November 15, 2020 has an estimated power output of 1.5 billion kWh per year.
With almost 2 million solar modules, a 500 kV / 1,200 MVA transformer station and a 22.2 km long 500 kV line, this is the largest solar power plant in Southeast Asia to date. The facility, which was built at an estimated cost of 20,000 billion dong, was commissioned five months ahead of the planned completion date due to the joint efforts of developers, logistics partners and equipment suppliers, including LONGi.
Construction of this facility began in April 2020 and LONGi signed an agreement to supply 273 MW of its modules for the project in May 2020. The module manufacturer completed the delivery well before the deadline.
Dennis She, SVP of LONGi Solar commented: “We are proud and delighted to be part of this great project by the Xuan Thien Group and to offer our trusted monocrystalline innovations. LONGi believes that technological innovations will further drive cost optimization for solar energy and will enable us to drive a dramatic change in the regional energy landscape through further such partnerships. “
The Dak Lak province in the central highlands of Vietnam is blessed with lots of sunshine and abundant fallow land and is ideal for generating solar energy. The Xuan Thien Group is therefore planning to increase the capacity of this plant to 2,000 MWac / 2,800 MWp by the beginning of 2022 and thus provide around 5 billion kWh per year for the national power grid.
