BSL Eco Energy is extremely pleased to announce that our inverters will be used in a 100MW solar farm in Binh Thuan Province, Vietnam. This is poised to be the largest solar farm in Vietnam, and the third largest in South East Asia to date.

A Memorandum of Agreement was signed between BSL Eco Energy and Vietnamese company Green Energy Eco Seido Co Ltd for the first 40MW of the installation last month to mark their partnership for this venture.

The signing was witnessed by Y Bhg Dato’ Abdul Razak b Abdul Majid, Chairman of the Energy Commission, SEDA Chairman Datuk Dr Yee Moh Chai and Chief Operating Officer Ir Akmal Rahimi Abu Samah. The signing ceremony took place during the launch of BSL Eco Energy’s range of locally assembled inverters at the SOLAR ASEAN 2017, which was co-located with EcoBuild South East Asia 2017.

“The farm will sit on around 300 hectares of land and generate enough energy to power approximately 50,000 homes,” said Lim. He added that Malaysians could be proud that a Malaysian green technology product will be used and recognised internationally.

Green Energy Eco Seido General Director Nguyen Tuan Anh expressed his confidence that the 100MW farm would have a positive effect on Vietnam’s national energy security and local economy.

“There are plans to grow dragonfruit plants under the solar panels’ shade. So not only will the solar system contribute to Vietnam’s electricity supply, it can also stimulate the local economy through agricultural industry and job creation,” he said.
