A joint venture between Thai energy firm B.Grimm Power and Vietnamese conglomerate Xuan Cau Group has awarded Beijing-based PowerChina International Group a contract to build the largest solar PV project in Southeast Asia.

The 420MW facility, announced in June and located in Tay Ninh, southwest Vietnam, is scheduled to start operation in June next year. It will cost around US$420 million.

B.Grimm aims to boost its generating equity to 5GW by 2022.

Sunseap International, a subsidiary of Singapore-based Sunseap Group, recently started construction of its 186MW facility also in Vietnam, in Ninh Thuan province.
