HÀ NỘI — Two new solar power plants are scheduled to be built in the central province of Hà Tĩnh, with total capacity of 58MWp.
The Cẩm Hưng solar power plant will be built in Cẩm Xuyên District’s Cẩm Hưng and Cẩm Quan communes in 2018-20. It will cover an area of 29ha with capacity of 29MWp.
The Sơn Quang solar power plant is planned for Hương Sơn District’s Sơn Quang Commune with the same capacity.
The Northern Power Corporation under the Electricity of Việt Nam (EVN) will mobilise capital for the two plants as planned to ensure progress and power supply.
Dương Tất Thắng, vice chairman of the provincial People’s Committee, said the two plants were the initial results of Hà Tĩnh Province’s trade promotion efforts in Germany.
Thắng said that the Ministry of Industry and Trade approved the adjusted and supplemented planning for electricity development in Hà Tĩnh Province in the 2016-25 period.
Earlier, Hà Tĩnh’s leaders held a meeting with Nguyễn Hữu Tráng, Trade Counsellor of the Vietnamese Embassy to Germany, management board of the Việt Nam-Germany Industrial Park (GVIP) and businesses from Germany and Italy.
The provincial People’s Committee signed a memorandum of understanding on investment with Ruland Arthur representing the German firms.
The committee issued Document No 7766/UBND-KT on December 8, 2017 allowing German companies to conduct a survey for construction of the two solar power plants. — VNS
