With a generating capacity of 100 megawatts and covering 135 hectares, it is the largest solar farm in Khanh Hoa province.

The farm was built at a total cost of VND2.3 trillion (US$98.9 million) with construction and installation undertaken by Hanwha Engineering & Construction Corp from the Republic of Korea and supervised by Germany’s TUV SUD.

Once operational, the plant will provide 158 million kWh a year to the national power grid, meeting the power demand of 5,000 households and reducing annual carbon emissions by 145,000 tonnes.
