Total, through its 100% subsidiary Total Solar Distributed Generation (DG) dedicated to the development of distributed solar energy solutions, has completed construction of the solar rooftop for Men-Chuen Vietnam Co., Ltd in Giang Dien, Vietnam. The installation is now fully operational, providing renewable energy enough to power 40% of Men-Chuen’s needs.
As a renowned textile manufacturer providing fabrics to major renowned brands around the world, Men-Chuen was looking for solutions to drive down carbon footprint and power consumption of its manufacturing operations and supply chain through clean energy solutions for a sustainable growth. Total has a robust experience of deploying renewable energy solutions on highly technical and complex sites across the world. This is one of the main drivers for Men-Chuen to choose Total for its wealth of expertise and experience of tailor-made solar solutions on any type of sites, and its strong track record with commercial and industrial clients.
The rooftop photovoltaic (PV) system has a capacity of 950 kilowatt-peak (kWp) and is expected to generate up to 1,300 Megawatt-hour (MWh) of clean energy yearly. The 2,200 solar panel installation drives down electricity costs and carbon footprint, with an estimate of 500 tons of CO2 emissions avoided annually.
Albert Kuo, General Manager of Men-Chuen said, “We were looking for the best partner in renewable energy that we could trust, and found Total, a company which could deliver both technical expertise and leading-edge technology, with the common goal of reducing the carbon footprint of our operations”.
