– The Hoa Hoi Solar Power Plant was inaugurated on June 25 in Hoa Hoi commune, Phu Hoa district, south central Phu Yen province.

Construction of the 265-ha plant, a joint venture between the Truong Thanh Vietnam Group JSC and Thailand’s B.Grimm Power Pcl., began in November 2018.

The plant has a capacity of 257 MWP, with total investment of over 4.9 trillion VND (210.7 million USD) funded by the Phu Yen TTP JSC.

This is the biggest renewable energy project in the central region, said Dang Trung Kien, Chairman of the Phu Yen TTP JSC, noting that the plant is expected to contribute to spurring socio-economic development, ensuring national energy security and generating jobs for local labourers.

Tran Huu The, Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee, urged the investor to run the project effectively, abide by environmental regulations, pay attention to social welfare and disseminate information about the benefits created by the project.

The Electricity Power Trading Company under the Vietnam Electricity (EVN) group has recognised the plant’s commercial electricity generation since June 10.

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.-VNA
