NDO – Ha Do Group held an inauguration ceremony for the Ha Do – Ninh Phuoc solar power plant in Ninh Thuan province on October 24 after more than three months of construction.

Covering around 58.7 hectares in Phuoc Thai and Phuoc Vinh commune, Ninh Phuoc district, the project has seen a total investment of over VND1.079 trillion (US$46.6 million) and boasts a capacity of 50MW.
