On May 15, Trungnam Group held the ceremony of 102 days and night campaign of Trung Nam – Thuan Nam 450MW solar power farm, combined with 220/500kV transformer station and 500kV, 220kV transmission lines in Phuoc Minh commune, Thuan Nam district, Ninh Thuan Province.
Being the leading investor in a clean energy sector with the success of 3 renewable energy sources with total capacity 450MW including Trung Nam wind-solar power renewable energy complex in Thuan Bac district, Ninh Thuan province, and Trung Nam solar power in Duyen Hai district, Tra Vinh province. Trungnam Group, with specific competencies, is looking forward to connecting over 3000MW (0.3GW) in Tra Vinh, Gia Lai, Dak Lak, and Ninh Thuan in the next 3 years.
Thuan Nam 450MW solar power plant project combined with Trung Nam – Thuan Nam 220/500kV transformer station and 500Kv, 220Kv electrical line is a strategic project for the development of the province’s electricity system of the entire national power transmission infrastructure. This project is implemented by Trungnam Group with a total investment of 12.000 trillion VND, include 450MW solar power plant, combined with 220/500kV transformer station and more than 17km of 500kV and 220kV transmission line extending from Phuoc Minh commune, Thuan Nam district, Ninh Thuan province to Vinh Tan commune, Tuy Phong district, Binh Thuan province.
Trung Nam – Thuan Nam solar power plant project 450MW combines 220/500kV Trung Nam – Thuan Nam transformer station and 220Kv, 500Kv power lines, in addition to produce more than 1billion kWh – in average (first year: 1,2 billion kWh), the project will make an important contribution to the grid capacity for Ninh Thuan and South Central Coast. The 2 transformer station of this project, whose total with a total capacity of 1,800MVA will increase connectivity as well as increasing reliability for the grid system in the South Central Coast.
The completion of Trung Nam – Thuan Nam solar power plant 450 MW, 220/500kV transformer station and 220kV, 500Kv lines into use makes important things such as:
• Contribute to the realization of the Government’s Resolution 115, which makes Ninh Thuan become a national renewable energy center.
• Contribute to the removal of renewable energy capacity in Ninh Thuan and Binh Thuan to avoid deflation causing damage to the plants, improve the economic environment. The province committed to engage investors and contribute to addressing the nationwide shortage of electricity.
• Adding more than 1 billion kWh of electricity each year to the system, promoting the development of renewable energy to replace other non-renewable power sources, especially environmental protection.
• Grasping the Politburo’s Resolution 55 to promote renewable energy, private participation in resources development, and infrastructure construction.
This is considered a historic milestone in Vietnam's energy industry when private enterprises invested in energy transmission infrastructure and received multilateral consensus from the Central to government levels. Thoroughly grasping the Politburo's Resolution 55 on the National Energy Development Strategy Direction to 2030 with a vision to 2045. Trungnam Group commits to complete Trung Nam – Thuan Nam solar power plant project 450MW in combination with Trung Nam – Thuan Nam 220/500kV, transformer station, and 220kV and 500kV lines starting from May 15, 2020; it is expected to be completed and connected to the national grid system in the third quarter of 2020.
