Vietnamese solar panel producer attends international renewable energy expo in Munich.

The IREX Energy JSC, a member of SolarBK Holdings, recently marked its fifth attendance at the leading global exhibition Intersolar, held this year in Munich. The expo brought together thousands of renewable energy enterprises and more than 5,000 consumers.

With the goal of reaching out to the global market so as to “globalize the domestic”, IREX plans to attend many solar power exhibitions in major markets. Besides InterSolar 2019, SolarBK will also attend the SNEC PV Power International Exhibition in Shanghai in June, the Renewable Energy International Exhibition in India, and the SPI International Exhibition in South America in September, while it also attended The Solar Show Vietnam in April.

Besides its commercial activities, SolarBK’s attendance at major events not only affirms the Vietnamese brand’s value in the worldwide market but also strengthens trust among customers in “Made in Vietnam” renewable energy solutions. 

To export to the fastidious EU market, with its many strict requirements, IREX had to meet standards certified by international organizations. Along with quality certifications, IREX also secured ISO 14001:2015 certification in environmental management systems for solar panel industrial activity and solar water heating systems.

Complying with these international standards indicates that IREX and SolarBK aspire to build a “green” world. While globally popularizing renewable energy, the company also pays special attention to protecting the environment in industrial activities.

Achieving those certifications took IREX six months, from sending samples to the certification issuer’s lab to completing all the paperwork. This required both time and money, so is only effective as the company establishes a long-term market development plan. 

Solar power has become popular in Vietnam only in recent years, in particular since the government completed its policy of encouraging solar energy development. Most Vietnamese firms, though, still only focus on developing the domestic market and don’t adopt any global plans, which explains why IREX is the only representative at global exhibitions such as InterSolar.

Many Vietnamese households, meanwhile, still believe that Vietnam has no domestic producer of international standard solar panels. This is easily understood, because Vietnam’s solar market has lagged behind China and Europe’s for a long period of time. Therefore, showing the world the Vietnamese brand is always SolarBK’s priority. Without great determination, Vietnamese companies will struggle to compete in their own home, especially in the context of a “flat” market. 

To prepare for this, IREX has built a special competitive strategy. Not only do its high capacity panels align with world standards, the company also creates non-standard panels that are adjustable to customers’ demands. SolarBK also imported a Double Glass Machine system to create a two-sided mirror based upon customers’ requests, with one of the most modern production lines in the world.
