The construction of a new wind farm in Tra Vinh province, in the South of Vietnam, has been launched on April 24th. This is a joint project between Tra Vinh Wind Power Limited Company No. 1 (TWPC) and their partners from South Korea. The wind farm covers a total area of approximately 1,200 hectares. It is equipped with 12 turbines with a capacity of 48 MW, and is scheduled to be finished by September 2020. The construction will include an operation management ward, an administrative ward, as well as several multi-functional buildings and transformer stations.
The total investment for the wind farm project is estimated at VND 2.4 trillion (USD 120 million), mainly from South Korean investors, Climate Investor One and Samtan company. Once the project is completed, the wind farm is expected to generate up to 180kW of electricity per hour in the first phase, becoming a new clean Energy source for the Mekong Delta region, the key agriculture production area of Vietnam.
