In another large-scale solar announcement for the country, Chinese PV manufacturer, Sungrow announced that Vietnam-based Dai Hai Power has contracted it to supply central inverters to a 100 MWp solar park near Buon Me Thuot City.
A spokesperson for Sungrow tells pv magazine the product will be shipped this November, while the project is set to be completed in May 2019. They could not disclose any further information, other than to say Dai Hai Power is the investor.
