Spanning 14 ha in the communes of Vinh Thinh, Vinh My A, and Vinh Hau, the Kosy Bac Lieu wind power plant consists of 45 turbines with a combined capacity of over 200 MW.

In the first of the three-phase project, nine turbines, whose total capacity reaches 40 MW, will be built at a cost of more than 1.5 trillion VND.

According to the group’s CEO Nguyen Viet Cuong, the first-phase plant will be put into operation before October 30, 2021, capable of generating 115 million kWh of power per year on average. It is expected to rake in annual revenue of about 270 billion VND, contribute dozens of billions of VND to the local budget, and create hundreds of jobs.
