Trina Solar Limited has announced that the photovoltaic (PV) manufacturer will be providing 258MW monocrystalline PERC double glass modules to the largest private solar PV project in Vietnam. The power station, located in Phan Rang-Thap Cham, the capital of Ninh Thuan province, has received an investment from leading Vietnamese investment firm Trung Nam Group. Construction is scheduled to be completed by June 30, 2019.

The power station, backed by investment totaling approximately $220 million, covers 264 hectares. The facility is the first combined wind and solar power generation plant in Vietnam and is expected to play a key role in the country's transformation into renewable energy. As a module supplier, Trina Solar differentiates itself from its peers with its quality products, capabilities in supply chain management, and core competitiveness in the APAC market.

During the signing ceremony, an executive from Trung Nam Group said, “Given that it's the group’s first PV power plant investment, Trung Nam was very careful in selecting a leader in technologies, products, and raw materials as its supplier partner.”

Mr. Yin Rongfang, vice president and head of global sales and marketing at Trina Solar, said, “We are honored to be partnering with Trung Nam in the integrated renewable power generation project that set new benchmarks in the industry in Vietnam, marking one further step in Trina Solar's commitment to emerging markets. With our deep understanding of the Vietnamese market, we have built a 1GW solar cell production facility in the country in addition to several new projects that are under development.”

He added that Trina Solar-branded products will become increasingly available in Vietnam which will help boost the company's sales in the APAC region.

Mr. Rongfang indicated that as a leading global module manufacturer, Trina Solar has built a strong overseas sales and operations team that has sold products to over 100 countries and regions across the world. By the end of 2017, the company's accumulated shipments totaled 32GW, ranking the firm the first among module manufacturers worldwide.
