November 30 (Renewables Now) - Chinese solar products maker JA Solar Holdings Co Ltd (NASDAQ:JASO) said today it has won a contract to deliver 257 MW of modules for a project in Vietnam’s Phu Yen province.
The deal was awarded by Shanxi Electric Power Engineering Co Ltd (SEPEC), which is a unit of Chinese state-owned energy conglomerate China Energy Engineering Group (HKG:3996). Under its terms, JA Solar will supply mono Passivated Emitter Rear Contact (PERC) modules, the manufacturer said without providing further details.
The so-called Hoa Hoi solar project in Vietnam’s South Central Coast is owned by solar power producer Phu Yen TTP, a joint venture between Thai company B.Grimm Power PCL (SET:BGRIM) and Truong Thanh Viet Nam Group (TTVN) of Vietnam. The project company, itself, is majority owned by B. Grimm, which purchased an 80% stake in the entity in August.
Finnish consulting and engineering firm Poyry Plc (HEL:POY1V) was earlier this week picked as owner's engineer for the complex, planned to be one of the largest solar parks in South East Asia.
