Bac Lieu wind power plant generates 31 mln kWh for grid

A wind power plant in the Mekong Delta province of Bac Lieu contributed 31 million kWh of power to the national grid after one year of operation.

During the year, the plant operated safely at 38 percent of its designed capacity.

The installation of an additional 52 turbines in the project’s second phase, with a total investment of over 4.19 trillion VND (197 million USD), is being sped up. These facilities are expected to be put into operation by the end of 2015.

The wind plant, covering 500 hectares in coastal Vinh Trach Dong commune, Bac Lieu city, is funded by the Cong Ly Construction-Trading-Tourism company at a sum of over 5.2 trillion VND (244.4 million USD).

Once complete, the plant is expected to contribute 320 million kWh to the national grid every year
