Jetion has won a 50MW order from Helio Power for the Thuan Minh 2 Solar Farm in Vietnam.
The firm’s subsidiary, CNBM New Energy, will serve as the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor. CNBM and Helio Power signed a 500MW cooperation agreement, of which this deal represents the first portion.
“We are proud to build a project that will showcase the huge potential of utility-scale solar in Vietnam. The region’s booming population, strong economic growth, and abundant sunlight represent an exciting opportunity for solar,” said Phan Thanh Dat, general manager at Helio Power.
The project will use the firm’s 72-cell poly modules. Grid connection is targeted for June 2019, ahead of a decline in the country’s feed-in tariff (FiT).
"Jetion Solar has worked tirelessly to build and maintain its reputation as a reliable module supplier in the utility market," said Honglei Zhao, SVP of Jetion Solar. "It is another demonstration of our world-class capabilities and service to our international customers.”
Understanding bifacial’s true potential: technology innovation and technical bankability of bifacial
The deployment of bifacial PV technology is growing rapidly. It has proven to be the most effective solution to reduce levelised energy costs (LCOE) and increase the Investment Rate of Return (IRR) of PV systems, offering substantially improved energy yield compared to the use of standard mono-facial modules. Even though the concept is not new, it has been a niche technology for many years with uncertainties in predicting performance and optimizing installations. Today, bifacial technology is becoming mainstream, with capacity available at the multi-gigawatt scale and with corresponding global deployment of project pipelines. Join this webinar, presented by Andrea Viaro, as he discusses the award-winning Swan bifacial module with transparent backsheet from DuPont, its features, benefits and differences vs. standard glass-glass modules. Jinko Solar’s new bifacial technology innovations will also be highlighted, specifically covering profitability in deployment at utility-scale PV power plants. Andrea will be joined by Dr.Lars Podlowski who will give a comprehensive introduction to all aspects of bifacial PV technology, with a special focus on benefits and risks industry buyers and investors should pay attention to.
