China-based Clenergy has won a supply contract from an undisclosed EPC company to provide mounting structures for a new 100MW solar power plant in Vietnam.
The solar power plant will be located in Khanh Hoa Province for which Clenergy will provide its Solar Terrace I solution. The Khanh Hoa Province is located in the coastal region between Vietnam and China.
According to the solar mountings manufacturer, the Solar Terrace I solution is one of its easy-installed carbon steel ground mounting products. The ground mounting solution has been selected based on the local natural environmental conditions and construction requirements.
Clenergy claims that SolarTerrace I is an economic ground-mounting system that is ideal for both commercial- and utility-scale installations. With an average thickness of 65 microns, the ground-mounting system can ensure a robust, reliable and economic system, said the solar mountings manufacturer.
Clenergy, in a statement, said: “This product is suitable for large-scale ground solar plants. The surface is treated by hot dip galvanizing process and has reliable corrosion resistance.
“In addition, the product can be applied to a variety of uneven terrain (such as hills, hillsides, etc.) or soil, providing a pre-installed solution, saving much manpower and cost.”
A Sino-Australian joint venture founded in 2007, Clenergy had already provided close to 350MW solar mounting solutions and products in Vietnam.
In August, the company won an order totaling 80MW from an EPC company and investor to deliver mounting structures for its 30MW and 50MW solar power plants in Vietnam.
Earlier in the year, Clenergy won its first ever order in Vietnam through a contract to supply a solar mounting system for a 69MW project in Gia Lai.
Headquartered in Xiamen, Clenergy operates two factories in Xiamen and Tianjin in addition to having six main offices across Australia, China, Germany, Japan, Thailand and The Philippines.
Earlier this month, Clenergy signed a power purchase agreement (PPA) with Snowy Hydro for its 143.5MW Metz Solar Farm in New South Wales, Australia. The Metz Solar Farm, which was acquired by the Chinese firm from Infinergy, will be capable of meeting the power consumption needs of up to 40,000 Australian homes.
