SMA Supplies System Technology to EVN’s First Large-Scale Solar Plant in Vietnam

SMA Solar Technology AG (SMA) has supplied system technology to a 54MW PV power plant located in Dak Nong Province in Vietnam. In collaboration with its Chinese EPC customer SUMEC Complete Equipment & Engineering, Co., Ltd (SUMEC-CEEC), SMA delivered 9 Medium Voltage Power Station 6000SC (MVPS-6000-20), a turnkey solution equipped with two Sunny Central 3000SC-EV inverters and a medium voltage solution for the grid connection.

“In the middle-south region of Vietnam where the PV project is located, the performance of the inverter capacity under high temperature and high humidity is of fundamental importance. Due to SMA’s demanding testing procedures for central inverters, our Sunny Central inverters are perfectly suited for the operation under these environmental conditions. They address the demand with full nominal power in continuous operation at ambient temperatures up to 50°C and 100% relative humidity”, said John Susa, EVP of SMA Global Sales & Service.

The power plant located in Cu Jut/Dak Nong Province is developed and owned by Vietnamese local company EVN-CHP. This plant is the first COD plant developed and owned by EVN, the Vietnam national utility company. EVN is also the final buyer of all solar electricity in Vietnam. The entire plant has gone into operation on April 19 of 2019. It will be entitled with a FiT of USD 0.0935 per kWh under the existing solar feed-in tariff (FiT) scheme for all the solar projects commissioned by end of June, 2019.

“SMA is one of the industry leaders, and has rich experience in large-scale solar projects worldwide. We are very happy to be able to use its new turnkey solution in our project, which offers even more power density in a 40-foot container and is easy to transport and quick to assemble and commission,” said the project director of SUMEC-CEEC.
