Song Giang Solar Power Plant project has been approved by the Ministry of Industry and Trade to be added to Khanh Hoa Electricity Development Plan for the period of 2016 – 2025, with consideration to 2035. The project has a land use area of about 60ha, located in Cam Thinh Dong and Cam Thinh Tay communes (Cam Ranh City), designed capacity of 50MWp with a total investment of VND1,200 billion. After being put into operation, Song Giang Solar Power Plant will provide the national electricity system with an output of more than 80 million kWh per year.
Sông Giang Solar power plant started construction in November 2016 and signed a power purchase contract with Electricity of Vietnam (EVN). After 6 months of construction, Song Giang Solar Power Plant has put into operation on April 15, 2016 and officially operated commercial electricity on 8-5-2019.
Song Giang Solar Power Plant uses the current advanced power generation technology of EPC Waaree Energies Limited. This is one of the leading companies in India, specializing in providing EPC general contractor services for renewable energy projects, especially projects on installing solar panels with capacity up. to 1.5GW. Waaree has implemented more than 280 solar power projects in India and over 68 countries around the world.
The plant installed 135,600 single-crystal panels to directly convert sunlight energy into electricity. The capacity of each battery plate is 365Wp, conversion efficiency is 18.81%. At the same time, build 9 5MVA turbocharging substations. The plant is connected to the national electricity system with a plan to build a new 22 / 110kV lift substation with ABB equipment; building transitional transmission lines to 110kV South Cam Ranh station.
