VGP - The construction of a solar power plant with a capacity of 50 MW has kicked off in Phuoc Dinh commune of Thuan Nam district, the south central province of Ninh Thuan.

Chairman of the Ninh Thuan People’s Committee Luu Xuan Vinh said according to international organisations, Ninh Thuan is eligible to develop renewable energy. It has the average wind speed of 7.1 metres per second at a height of 65 metres, while the number of sun hours is about 2,600 – 2,850 per year. 

The province is also less vulnerable to storms, so it is an ideal destination for investment in renewable energy, he said, adding that Ninh Thuan considers renewable energy development one of the six pillar sectors to make economic breakthroughs, thereby soon turning the province into a renewable energy centre of Viet Nam.

Once operational, the Bau Ngu reservoir solar power plant will provide a considerable volume of solar power, helping to local boost socio-economic development. 

The proposed projects cover an area of ​​75 hectares with an installed capacity of 50 MW and total investment of nearly VND1.15 trillion.

The project is expected to supply all 50 MW of electricity for the national grid before June 2019.
