Last year, BCG Energy started commercial operations of two solar farm energy projects BCG – CME Long An 1 & 2 (Long An Province) with a total capacity of 40.6MW and 100.5MW, respectively.
Currently, the company is constructing a 330MW Phù Mỹ solar farm (Bình Định Province); and a 49.3MW VNECO solar farm (Vĩnh Long Province) with expected commercial operation date before December 31, 2020.
Early next year, BCG Energy will start construction of a 50MW Krong Pa 2 solar farm (Gia Lai Province).
It is also developing numerous rooftop solar projects with a total capacity of 50MW in various industrial parks in the south.
For the wind energy sector, BCG Energy owns a 550MW portfolio in Cà Mau, Sóc Trăng and Trà Vinh provinces. BCG Energy aims to reach 2.3GW in total capacity of energy projects installed by 2025. — VNS
