NDO/VNA – The Mekong Delta province of Bac Lieu inaugurated a 99.2 MW wind-power plant on January 17.

The facility, which covers more than 100 hectares, is situated in Vinh Trach Dong commune, Bac Lieu City.

Construction began in September 2010 with an investment of over VND5.2 trillion (US$234 million), which was sourced from the Export-Import Bank of the United States and the Bank for Investment and Development of Vietnam (BIDV).

Comprised of 62 wind turbines, the plant is capable of generating 320 million kilowatt hours per year. It joined the national grid in May 2013 when its first ten turbines were completed and put into operation.

According to BIDV, the large-scale project plays a groundbreaking role in promoting the use of renewable energy across the Mekong Delta.
