On September 15, at Tan Phu Trung Industrial Park, Cu Chi, Ho Chi Minh City, the handover ceremony of a 2.23 MWp rooftop solar power system of the factory of Kem Nghia (Nghia Nippers Corporation) took place. The ceremony was attended by Mr. Tu, Tran Minh – Deputy General Director of Kem Nghia; Mr. Thuong, Duong Van – Head of Southeast Asia of ecoligo investment fund; Mr. Tri, Nguyen Quang – CEO of Vu Phong Energy Group ; Mr. An, Pham Dang – Deputy General Director of Vu Phong Energy Group and many members of the Board of Directors of 3 units.
The rooftop solar power system at Kem Nghia factory was developed under a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) cooperation, with ecoligo International Investment Fund (Germany) as the investor, and Vu Phong Energy Group providing Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) as well as Operation and Maintenance (O&M) services. The system has a capacity of 2.23 MWp and uses 3,720 high-performance Canadian 600Wp solar panels, 16 110kW inverters from SMA, and high-quality support frames and cables designed to last over 30 years. With a capacity of 2.23 MWp, the system can generate over 3,200 MWh of solar electricity annually, helping reduce more than 2,300 tons of CO2 emissions per year, equivalent to more than 38,800 trees seedlings grown for 10 years.

At the handover ceremony, Mr. Tu, Tran Minh – Deputy General Director of Kem Nghia Company, emphasized that using clean energy from solar power is part of Kem Nghia’s sustainable development direction. The system’s handover and utilization are important as Kem Nghia strives to transform into a smart, modern, and sustainable factory.
The handover ceremony is even more meaningful as it coincides with the occasion of Kem Nghia’s 43-year journey. Over these 43 years of establishment, construction, and development, Kem Nghia has become the number one nail clipper brand in Vietnam, holding over 80% of the market share. It is also the enterprise with the largest nail care tool manufacturing factory in Indochina. Not only does Kem Nghia affirm its leading position in the domestic market, but they also expand strongly in international markets such as the United States, Europe, China, South Korea,…
Representing the project’s investors, Mr. Thuong, Duong Van – Head of Southeast Asia of ecoligo investment fund, shared insights into the project’s development and expressed joy as the system was completed and handed over. This marks a significant step forward in ecoligo’s renewable energy investment journey, contributing to the clean energy transition in Vietnam and globally, aiming for a greener future.
