The Tra Vinh Provincial People’s Committee in the Mekong Delta recently approved the construction of the second phase of the RoK-Tra Vinh wind power plant in Truong Long Hoa commune, Duyen Hai town.

The project will be invested by the Woojin Construction Co. from the Republic of Korea (RoK) with total investment of VND4.9 trillion ($247.6 million). The 96 MW plant will span nearly 2,500 ha of land and water surface and have 48 wind turbines expected to generate more than 332,438 MWh of power per year.

The project aims to support the national power grid and ensure energy security for the province and surrounding localities.

Construction of the project’s first phase, worth $130 million, began in February and will have a total capacity of 48 MW. Upon completion next February it will generate over 173,000 MWh of power every year.

The province plans to build six wind power projects in coastal areas in Duyen Hai district and Duyen Hai town, including three in Truong Long Hoa commune, two in Hiep Thanh commune, and one in Dong Hai commune.
