Sharp Energy Solutions Corporation (SESJ), part of Sharp Corp, said on June 30 it has completed building a 45-MW direct current (DC) solar power plant in Ninh Thuan province, Vietnam, according to Renewables Now.
The photovoltaic (PV) facility was built by the company and several partners including Vietnam-based conglomerate T&T Group Joint Stock Company (T&T) and its subsidiary T&T affiliate Ninh Thuan Energy Industry Joint Stock Company.
The solar park is to generate some 76,373 MWh of electricity per year. This is enough to supply around 40,500 average Vietnamese households for a year, reported by Energy Live News.
