JinkoSolar has announced that it has supplied 100 MW of high-efficiency solar modules for the Srepok 1 and Quang Minh Solar Power Plant Complex, one of Vietnam’s largest solar power projects. The project is located in Buon Don district in the Central Highlands province of Dak Lak.

Construction began in October 2018, with commercial operations beginning in January 2019. A total of $95 million was invested into the project by Dai Hai Investment. The project is expected to reduce the need to import approximately 90,000 tons of coal annually, and reduce CO2 emissions by 72,000 tons per year.

Speaking at the inauguration of the project, Vietnam’s Deputy Prime Minister Truong Hoa Binh said that Dak Lak was strategically important. He said: “Renewable energy has become a global trend, and Vietnam in general, and Dak Lak in particular, have a lot of potential for solar energy development. This complex will play an important role in our efforts to further the province’s socio-economic development while ensuring national energy security.”
