Hau Giang (VNA) – Executives of JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd, a global leader in the solar industry, had a working session with Hau Giang authorities on October 24, presenting its plan to build a solar power plant in the Mekong Delta province.

According to James Gia Co, coordinator of the company’s projects in Vietnam, at the cost of 1.2 trillion VND (54 million USD), the JinkoSolar Vietnam – Hau Giang plant will have a designed capacity of approximately 40 MW.

It will cover about 50 hectares at a location registered in Phung Hiep district’s Hoa An commune.

Administrative procedures are expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of this year, with land clearance, plant construction and operation scheduled for 2017.

Nguyen Van Tuan, Deputy Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee, said Hau Giang will facilitate the implementation of the energy project.

JinkoSolar Vietnam has to promptly submit details of the project, particularly its scale and environmental impacts, he noted.

In 2015, Hau Giang licensed the PetroVietnam Song Hong Investment and Trading Corporation to build a solar power plant worth over 1.5 trillion VND (67.5 million USD) in the same locality. The 40-MW plant will become operational in the second quarter of 2017.-VNA
