SCG Concrete Roof (Vietnam) Ltd., a member of Thai conglomerate the SCG Group, has recently signed a cooperation agreement with the SolarGATES Trading JSC, a subsidiary of the SolarBK Holdings Group, to officially become a nationwide distributor of SolarGATES renewable energy products and solutions.

SCG Concrete Roof spent some nine months exploring Vietnam’s renewable energy market before deciding to partner with Solar BK Holdings. The groundwork for the collaboration came from a need to find qualified solar panel suppliers in Asia to provide solar power solutions integrated with SCG Concrete Roof’s products in Thailand. 

After visiting the international-standard photovoltaic (PV) module manufacturing process at IREX - a member of SolarBK Holdings - SCG Concrete Roof was impressed by the efficient workflow and value chain, from manufacturing and technology to technical solutions. Visiting the Solar Experience Space (a community-based project held by SolarBK Holdings) at Ho Chi Minh City’s Bach Khoa University last October allowed SCG Concrete Roof to gain insight into the vision and development orientation of SolarBK. SCG Concrete Roof then decided to establish a long-term partnership with SolarBK in Vietnam, beginning with the distribution of residential-scale PV solutions.

One of the business activities of SCG Concrete Roof is to provide roofing solutions to households. With over 80 distributors nationwide, it expects to partner with SolarGATES to deliver smart, environmentally-friendly solutions by installing PV systems on rooftops. Distribution items include residential-scale PV rooftop solutions, residential-scale solar water heater solutions, and renewable energy products and gadgets. 

A representative from SCG Concrete Roof said that SolarBK Holdings is a giant corporation in designing, building, and implementing green energy solutions in Vietnam. The prestige of its parent company’s brand is a convincing reason for SCG Concrete Roof to believe in successful collaboration with SolarGATES, who is also considered one of only a few Vietnamese enterprises in the field of renewable energy with a nationwide distribution network. 

“Inheriting the distribution network of its parent company, SolarGATES has considerable potential to fully cooperate with SCG Concrete Roof in the implementation of solutions for residential customers, as well as providing O&M services (Operations and Maintenance) all over the country,” said Mr. Nguyen Vu Nguyen, Operations Director of SolarGATES. “SolarBK Holdings has a complete value chain, from technology and production lines to financial solutions, which is a solid foundation for SCG Concrete Roof to aim for more comprehensive and smarter solutions in the future.”

The signing ceremony marks the beginning of an important partnership that will not be limited to Vietnam. SCG Concrete Roof is now distributing SolarGATES’s PV Rooftop solutions in north-central Nghe An province. Distribution to other markets will be handled in the shortest possible time.
