Singapore's Leader Energy acquires Binh Thuan solar power plant
Singapore's Leader Energy has purchased 100 per cent equity stake of the Vinh Hao 6 solar power plant in the south-central province of Binh Thuan.
The Vinh Hao 6 solar power plant was run by Vinh Hao 6 Power JSC, which is held by ACWA Power, FECON Corporation and FECON Power JSC. With a total investment of $53 million, the Vinh Hao 6 solar power plant has achieved its Commercial Operation Date (COD) in June 2019.

Vietnam is regarded as having a special potential for solar power development due to its high average annual total radiation. The solar industry is expected to contribute significantly to the nation's capacity for renewable energy in the near future as part of the global trend of restructuring the energy industry towards a clean and sustainable direction.
With the acquisition of the solar power plant, Leader Energy plans to expand and grow its renewable energy portfolio with a view to becoming the leading green energy player in the Asia Pacific region. Leader Energy has extensive experience in developing and acquiring renewable energy projects in Vietnam, Malaysia, and Taiwan.
