Jetion has won a 50MW order from Helio Power for the Thuan Minh 2 Solar Farm in Vietnam.
The firm’s subsidiary, CNBM New Energy, will serve as the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor. CNBM and Helio Power signed a 500MW cooperation agreement, of which this deal represents the first portion.
“We are proud to build a project that will showcase the huge potential of utility-scale solar in Vietnam. The region’s booming population, strong economic growth, and abundant sunlight represent an exciting opportunity for solar,” said Phan Thanh Dat, general manager at Helio Power.
The project will use the firm’s 72-cell poly modules. Grid connection is targeted for June 2019, ahead of a decline in the country’s feed-in tariff (FiT).
“Jetion Solar has worked tirelessly to build and maintain its reputation as a reliable module supplier in the utility market,” said Honglei Zhao, SVP of Jetion Solar. “It is another demonstration of our world-class capabilities and service to our international customers.”
