LONGi supplies 273MW of its solar modules for Southeast Asia's largest solar plant, Phase I of the Xuan Thien Ea Sup Project in Dak Lak, Vietnam
XI'AN, China, Nov. 25, 2020 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

LONGi, the world leading solar technology headquartered in Xi'an, China, is 
happy to announce that it has successfully supplied its Hi-MO 4 Series modules 
for Southeast Asia's largest solar plant, Phase I of the Xuan Thien Ea Sup 
Project in Dak Lak, Vietnam. Commissioned by Xuan Thien Group on November 15, 
2020, the 600 MWac / 831 MWp utility-scale solar plant is estimated to have an 
electricity output of 1.5 billion kWh per year. 

With nearly 2 million solar panels, 500 kV / 1,200 MVA transformer station and 
22.2 km of 500 kV line, this is so far the largest solar power plant in 
Southeast Asia. The plant, which has been set up at an estimated cost of 20,000 
billion dong, has been commissioned five months earlier than the scheduled date 
of completion due to joint efforts by the developers, logistics partners and 
equipment suppliers including LONGi. Construction of this plant started in 
April 2020 and LONGi signed an agreement to supply 273 MW of its modules to be 
used for the project in May 2020. LONGi completed the delivery much before the 

Numerous projects to build large solar power facilities are underway in 
Vietnam, as the country works towards bridging its anticipated power shortage 
with green energy. Dak Lak province, located in Vietnam's Central Highlands, is 
blessed with ample sunshine and abundant idle land -- is highly suitable for 
solar power generation. Xuan Thien Group, therefore, plans to scale up the 
capacity of this plant to 2,000 MWac / 2,800 MWp by early 2022, providing about 
5 billion kWh per year for the national electricity system. 

Dennis She, SVP of LONGi Solar, commented, "We are proud as well as excited to 
be a part of this grand project by the Xuan Thien Group, offering our trusted 
mono-crystalline innovations. LONGi believes that technology innovations will 
further drive solar power cost optimization, enabling us to drive a dramatic 
shift in the regional energy landscape through more such partnerships." 

This landmark project indicates LONGi's shared ambition towards the 
sustainability of the booming Southeast Asian market. As one of the world's 
Tier 1 solar manufacturers, LONGi has joined all three of Climate Group's RE 
initiatives: RE100, EV100 and EP100, as part of its green corporate 
responsibility in global climate action. Moving forward, LONGi seeks to promote 
the global energy transition with global partners and customers, by providing 
its high-efficiency mono-crystalline solar modules around the whole world.
