The first ten turbines with a capacity of 16MW of a wind mill in the Mekong Delta province of Bac Lieu started generating electricity for the national grid on May 29.

The ten turbines are capable of generating more than 55 million kWh a year.

The plant, located on 500 hectares in coastal Vinh Trach Dong commune, Bac Lieu city, is invested by the Cong Ly Construction-Trading-Tourism company with a sum of 5.2 trillion VND.

With a total capacity of 99 MW from 62 turbines, the wind mill is expected to generate 320 million kWh per year once its remaining 52 turbines are put into operation in December 2014.-VNA
