TotalEnergies completes rooftop solar installation for PREMO Vietnam Co. Ltd, a global leader in innovative magnetics
Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, September 11, 2023 - TotalEnergies has completed the building of 1 megawatt-peak (MWp) Rooftop Solar Photovoltaic (PV) System at two production sites of PREMO Vietnam Co. Ltd in Quang Nam Province, Vietnam. Headquartered in Spain, PREMO is a leading provider of electromagnetic motion tracking sensing solutions and designs. This PV system will power about 25% of the facilities with renewable energy.
With over 1,700 of modules installed, the PV system will generate approximately 1,350 megawatt-hours (MWh) of renewable electricity annually. PREMO Vietnam will achieve cost savings for the facilities and reduce the company’s carbon footprint by about 1,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions annually, equivalent to planting over 15,000 trees.
Under the agreement, TotalEnergies fully funded, installed the solar system and will operate it while PREMO Vietnam will only purchase the electricity produced for 20 years, avoiding any upfront costs.
