Canadian Solar Inc. , one of the world’s largest solar power companies, announced it achieved commercial operation on its first third party Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) project in Vietnam. Canadian Solar provided solar modules, inverter stations and EPC services in a joint venture with IPC Technique JSC and SD668 Vietnam JSC for the 15 MWp Chu Ngoc Solar Project owned by Licogi 16 JSC.
Dr. Shawn Qu, Chairman of Canadian Solar, said, “We are pleased to have completed the project with joint efforts from IPC Technique JSC and SD668 Vietnam JSC. This partnership with Licogi 16 JSC further expands our presence in Vietnam.
