HÀ NỘI — Việt Nam’s TSV Investment JSC and Singapore’s wind energy developer The Blue Circle kicked off construction of Đầm Nại wind project in Ninh Thuận Province on Friday.
The project, on 9.6ha, is set to have capacity of 40 MW with total investment of some US$80 million.
Construction will take place in two phases, the first phase expected to be completed and put into operation in October 2017, with the second scheduled to be operational in October 2018.
Speaking at the ceremony, TSV’s chairman Đỗ Văn Điện said that the G114-2.625 MW turbine will be the first Gamesa turbine supplied to the wind power plant and the largest wind turbine in the country so far.
In October 2017, the joint venture will put into operation three turbines with a capacity of about 8 MW. After the completion of the first three turbines, the remaining 13 will be built, with all 16 turbines set to be operational by October 2018, Điện added.
Investors also plan to recruit local labour and fulfill the corporation’s social responsibilities in the project area.
The Blue Circle has a total of 1,658 MW of projects in development in five countries with offices in Singapore, Bangkok and HCM City. Đầm Nại will become its first operational project.
The company is a developer of renewable energy projects with a focus on wind power in ASEAN countries. Based in Singapore, it bridges the gap in project development in Southeast Asia by bringing international experience and financial expertise together with local market understanding. — VNS
