Thai Deputy PM Wissanu Kreangam attended these two events.    

The installation of 71 turbines in the third phase of the VND8.9 trillion (US$391.6 million) Bac Lieu Wind Power Plant began in Vinh Trach Dong commune, the Mekong Delta city of Bac Lieu.

This phase is part of efforts to enhance trade and investment ties between Viet Nam and Thailand. 

With the new turbines, the project will house a total of 133 turbines with total capacity of 241.2 MW. The third phase alone has a capacity of 142 MW. 

The project is in line with the national electricity development planning during 2011-2020 with a vision towards 2030 and the Bac Lieu wind power development planning to 2020 with a vision towards 2030. 

Once operational, the plant is expected to provide 373 million kWh for the national grid and generate more than 1,000 jobs.

The same day, work began on a wind farm in Soc Trang Province, which is designed to have a total operating capacity of 98 megawatts and will cost nearly VND5.4 trillion (US$237.6 million).

The first phase of the Soc Trang wind farm will have a capacity of 30 megawatts and is scheduled to be completed in three years.
