NINH THUẬN — Trungnam Group has put its latest wind power plant into operation in Ninh Phước District in the central province of Ninh Thuận on Sunday. The project, worth more than VNĐ1.6 trillion (US$69.5 million), includes 11 turbines supplied by Germany’s Enercon GmbH and will have an annual output of 136,281 MWh.
General Director of Trungnam Group, Nguyễn Tâm Tiến, said that the company used its experience to overcome the difficulties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic to complete and put the project into commercial operation before the deadline of October 31, 2021, ensuring economic, technical and financial criteria.
The wind power plant’s official operation is a special milestone for Trungnam Group's campaign to complete 200 MW of wind power and 650MW of solar power in Ninh Thuận.
So far, Trungnam Group has other projects in Việt Nam including wind power plant No. 5 Ninh Thuận, the 151.95 MW capacity Thuận Bắc wind power plant, the 450 MW Thuận Nam solar power plant, and the 204MW Thuận Bắc solar power plant. The total electricity output of the four projects is expected to reach 2.25 billion kWh per year. Total multi-field investment from Trungnam Group in Ninh Thuận has reached $2 billion.
Trungnam Group aims to realise its strategic goals and vision to become a sustainable investment group on a global scale by 2025, in which energy will continue to be its key business.
It plans to increase its own capacity to 3.8 GW of renewable energy and 1.5 GW of LNG power by 2025, contributing to the process of reducing carbon emissions equivalent to more than 13 million tonnes compared to coal-fueled power, while maintaining growth of at least 20 per cent.
In 2021, Trungnam Group completed three large wind power projects, which saw the 400 MW Ea Nam wind power project in the Central Highlands of Đắk Lắk become the largest onshore wind power plant project in Việt Nam. — VNS
