BAC LIEU (VNS) — The Cuu Long (Mekong) Delta province of Bac Lieu inaugurated a 99.2MW wind-power plant yesterday.
The facility, covering more than 100 ha, is situated in Vinh Trach Dong Commune, Bac Lieu City.
Construction began in September 2010 with an investment of over VND5.2 trillion (US$231.1 million), sourced from the Export-Import Bank of the United States and the Bank for Investment and Development of Viet Nam (BIDV).
With 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 10 turbines were completed. — VNS
