HCMC – Trung Nam Group will put into operation a solar power plant with a total capacity of 204 MW in the south-central province of Ninh Thuan next year, an executive said.

Tran Duc Xuyen, director of Trung Nam Wind Power JSC, a unit of the group, said the plant would cover 267 hectares inside the Trung Nam wind farm in Ninh Thuan Province.

The provincial government and the Ministry of Industry and Trade have thrown their support behind the project, and proposed the Government include the project in a master plan for solar power development in Ninh Thuan until 2020 with a vision to 2030.

That solar and wind power is generated at the same farm will help make use of common infrastructure, and achieve synergy, Xuyen said.

The group’s solar and wind power project is the first in Vietnam which produces two kinds of renewable energy, bringing about ecological benefits in line with global energy trends.

Trung Nam is currently building a wind power plant whose designed capacity is 90 MW. Work on the plant started in the third quarter of 2016.

The wind power farm is to be equipped with wind pillars and propellers originally from Germany’s Enercon Group in the second quarter of this year.

The wind farm, costing an estimated VND3.96 trillion (US$174.6 million), is divided into two phases which are scheduled for completion in the third quarter of this year, and the second quarter of next year respectively.

Earlier, Trung Nam developed some energy projects including the 70MW Dong Nai 2 hydropower plant, and Krong No 2 and Krong No 3 hydropower plants with combined output of 48 MW in the Central Highlands province of Lam Dong.
