Established in 2020, VSSES leverages Sembcorp Industries’ expertise as a leading solar energy provider in Singapore. VSSES delivers renewable energy generated by solar systems on the rooftops of factories at the integrated townships and industrial parks developed by Becamex IDC Corporation and VSIP. Both developers are supportive of more sustainable industrial developments, including lower carbon emissions at the industrial level.

The grid-tied solar energy systems are built, owned, operated, and maintained by VSSES with no financial outlay by customers for their installation or operation. The solar energy systems are backed by a high-tech digital platform that uses real-time tracking devices to remotely monitor the output of every single string of rooftop solar system installed at the industrial parks. The platform provides enhanced visibility over operations, and enables maintenance and troubleshooting teams to be swiftly deployed when needed – making the operations of solar assets more robust and reliable.
As a safety innovator, VSSES adopts a comprehensive three-dimensional structural assessment during pre-project implementation to ensure 100 per cent tie-off fall protection through the roof’s controlled access zone. To raise safety standards in the industry, VSSES also awards contractors that demonstrate workplace safe practices during and after project implementation.
Andrew Toh, general director of VSSES, said that, “VSSES will continue to support Vietnam’s transition to a low-carbon energy future through our best-in-class solutions and good safety practices. We believe these are our cornerstones to elevate the industry standards and to ensure the sustainability of our projects, bringing long term benefits to our customers and the community in Vietnam."
