HCMC – Cong Ly Construction-Trading-Tourism Co. has successfully installed two wind power turbines along Bac Lieu Province’s coastline, said assistant general director Nguyen Thang Long of the company.

The wind power towers and turbines, each weighing 210 tons with a height of 90 meters, have been erected by the U.S. firm General Electric (GE) with an output of 1.6 megawatts each, Long told the Daily.

Long said his company would generate power to the national grid after finishing the first phase of the project with the installment of ten more turbines in September.

This is the first wind power project to be implemented along the nation’s coastline. Thanks to the US$200-million loan funded by the U.S. Export-Import Bank (Ex-Im Bank), Cong Ly is deploying the project along a 62-kilometer stretch of the coastline of Bac Lieu Province with a combined output capacity of 300 megawatts.

In late March, the firm also asked for approval from the HCMC government to carry out a 200-megawatt wind power project in the city’s outlying coastal district of Can Gio with total investment capital of VND10 trillion. If the project gets nod from the city government, Cong Ly will have 125 turbines installed along a 20-kilometer section on Can Thanh beach by GE within three to four years.
