The plant is built by Sunseap Group, the largest clean energy solutions provider in Singapore. Once operational in June 2019, the plant will supply over 200 million kWh of electricity to the national power grid annually.

It is expected to provide electricity for nearly 200,000 households and generate jobs for 200 local workers. Ninh Thuan receives special attention from investors as it has big advantages for renewable energy development with the average wind speed of 7-8m/s and 2,800 hours of sunshine every year.

The province aims to become a renewable energy hub in the country with the generation of 2,000 MW of solar power by 2020. Nearly 30 Vietnamese and foreign investors have been approved to build solar power plants in Ninh Thuan which has the potential of tapping some 9,000 MW of solar energy.
