Sharp Energy Solutions Corporation (SESJ), part of Sharp Corp, said on June 30 it has completed building a 45-MW direct current (DC) solar power plant in Ninh Thuan province, Vietnam, according to Renewables Now. 

The photovoltaic (PV) facility was built by the company and several partners including Vietnam-based conglomerate T&T Group Joint Stock Company (T&T) and its subsidiary T&T affiliate Ninh Thuan Energy Industry Joint Stock Company. 

The solar park is to generate some 76,373 MWh of electricity per year. This is enough to supply around 40,500 average Vietnamese households for a year, reported by Energy Live News.

This plant can offset the equivalent of 25,458 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in a year, Sharp said.

With the completion of this solar power plant, Sharp stated it is committed to helping Vietnam reach its solar capacity goal of 12,000 MW by the year 2030.

Kyodo news agency quoted a spokesman for Sharp Corp. said the group is promoting solar power business in Asia when the electricity demand is expected to continue to grow.

SESJ has already built five other solar power plants in Vietnam, generating a combined capacity of approximately 245MW.

Last time, Sharp built solar power plants in Thailand, Indonesia and Mongolia, informed VietnamBiz.

Founded by Tokuji Hayakawa and modified as a joint-stock corporation in 1935, Sharp is a Japanese company that has mainly manufactured and sold telecommunications equipment, electric and electronic application equipment, and electronic components.

As of March 2020, the company’s capital stock reached 5 billion yen and the number of employees worldwide was 52,876.
