Building new renewable capacity in Vietnam
In 2019 we have completed the first
phase of a long-term Power Purchase
Agreement (PPA) for electricity generated
from photovoltaic panels.
was signed in July and the first phase was
completed and switched on in October.
These panels are installed on many of the
roof areas in our Ho Chi Minh City plant.
Phase 2 of the project will be undertaken
in 2020 using the roof area of the new
effluent treatment plant that is currently
being built on that site.
The full array will have a capacity of 1mW,
and the first phase is slightly more than
half of that (553 kW). The agreement will
run for 20 years and we anticipate that
it will reduce our CO2 emissions by 850
This project has been exemplary in terms of
the speed and efficiency of the installation
and start-up and has shown that in the right
circumstances it is possible to complete such
projects in a very short timeframe.
