FDI projects examined by Vietnamese
This system, the first of its kind in Viet Nam, was reported to have effectively supplied electricity to the hospital for nearly a month, especially to emergency areas during unpredictable and daylong power cuts that occur regularly during the hot dry season.
The system's thermo-electric batteries can supply about 600kWh per month and the smart integrated photovoltaic technology can store spare electricity, which avoids interruptions during surgery and assures the safety of patients in case of power cuts. The system is estimated to have supplied 100 per cent of the electricity demand of the hospital's emergency areas.
It is part of the protocol signed between Viet Nam and Spain.
According to head of HCM City Institute of Physics' Solar Electricity Development Unit Trinh Quang Dung, who is also head of the project, this is the first solar photovoltaic model which has been produced and applied in Viet Nam. All of the equipment is designed by Nam Thai Ha Joint Stock Company.
Dr Pham Hong Yen, director of Tam Ky City's Health Clinic Centre, said that thanks to the system, many critical cases had been saved when unexpected blackouts occurred.
Yen described the system as a safe, economical and environmentally friendly product.
According to Dung, the solar power local network (Madicub) is the most important part of the system, which consumes solar energy to create electricity and uses available electricity in case of a shortage of solar energy.
Dung said the State should promulgate regulations on the use of solar electricity, so the model could spread to other hospitals.
