Armed with strong management capabilities, industry expertise and extensive business network, the Group’s IBO business has grown rapidly, making it a major owner and operator of distributed power stations in Southeast Asia. Currently, the Group owns more than 10 distributed power stations globally.
Mr. Samson Lam, Executive Chairman of VPower Group, expressed his heartfelt gratitude to the organiser and the judging panel for their acknowledgement and said, “We are incredibly pleased to receive such honour, which is a supreme recognition of our continuous effort to strive for improvements and the achievements we have made over the years. Since we started IBO business in 2012, we have strategically focused on regions along the Belt and Road Initiative in order to underpin local economies and improve local residents’ livelihood with our fast-track distributed power solutions. Recently, we have stepped up expanding our business footprint in the Latin America and Europe to support their energy transition. Upon the completion of business upgrading and transforming, we continue to upgrade our power solutions and introduce more advanced systems. Progress we have made includes launching our first biogas project which equips with combined heat and power system in China this year and incorporating Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) technology into a soon-to-be-completed new project in Myanmar to enhance energy efficiency. Our diversified projects portfolio and business network not only strengthen our industry position, but also support our ambitious business development plan fulfilling our mission to become a global leader. Looking ahead, the Group will continue creating best values for our stakeholders while embracing our corporate sustainability and social responsibility.”
