HCMC – BCG Energy JSC inaugurated the VNECO Vinh Long solar farm project, whose capacity is 49.3 MW, in Trung Nghia Commune, Vung Liem District of Vinh Long Province today, December 30, as part of the province’s power development plan for the 2016-2025 period, with a vision toward 2035.

The solar farm covers an area of 49.7 hectares, with a total investment of VND1.15 trillion. The subsidiary of Bamboo Capital Group broke ground on this project on November 6 this year. Until now, the construction of the sizeable solar power project became the fastest ever one to be completed in Vietnam.

Once put into operation, the facility will generate some 70 million kW per year, equivalent to the amount of electricity provided for 26,000 households, as well as a reduction of 19,000 tons of carbon dioxide.

The VNECO Vinh Long solar farm is expected to initiate the development of more solar energy projects in this Mekong Delta province. It will also help contribute to the local economic growth, create jobs in the locality and add energy to the national power grid.

Pham Minh Tuan, CEO of BCG Energy, said that BCG Energy pledged to operate the solar power plant in line with prevailing regulations and protect the environment during the replacement and handling of solar panels.

In the coming time, BCG Energy will implement more solar and wind power projects in Long An, Soc Trang, Tra Vinh, and Ca Mau provinces in the delta and in the Central Highlands province of Gia Lai, aiming at putting into service projects with a total output of 2GW by 2025.
