Japanese group eyes solar energy plant in Binh Phuoc

Officials of the southern province of Binh Phuoc on January 25 discussed a solar energy plant project with representatives of the Asia Infonet INC of Japan’s AIN Group.

The project is expected to be built on an area of 54ha at the Becamex - Binh Phuoc industrial and urban complex.

At the meeting, Asia Infonet INC’s General Director Tsuyoshi Sai said the company has experience in solar energy development in Japan. He also noted the great potential for solar energy in Binh Phuoc.

The general director hoped to know more about procedures to carry out the project as soon as possible, particularly legal procedures to connect the plant with the national grid and sell electricity at the IP.

Secretary of the provincial Party Committee Nguyen Van Loi said Binh Phuoc backs the company’s intention and will create favourable conditions for the prompt implementation of the project. He also asked relevant agencies to help the Japanese investor complete procedures in the first quarter.

Binh Phuoc holds huge advantage to foster solar energy projects, with an average of 2,700 sunshine hours per year. The province has given priority to solar energy development and is calling for investors in this sector.
