NDO/VNA – The Trungnam Group put a wind power plant into operation in the communes of Loi Hai and Bac Phong in Thuan Bac District, south-central Ninh Thuan Province, on April 16.

This is the biggest wind power project in Vietnam and has been combined with a 204MW solar power plant to form a solar and wind farm complex that is considered the largest and most unique in the country and Southeast Asia.
The solar-wind power farm complex will supply a total 950 million kWh per year to the national grid.

The first phase of the wind power plant was completed in 2019 with a capacity of 39.95MW. The second phase of the plant added an additional capacity of 64MW, and the third phase, 48MW.

According to Tran Quoc Nam, Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee, Ninh Thuan is now taking a leading role with 32 solar power projects with a total capacity amounting to 2,257 MW, and three wind power projects with a collective capacity of 329 MW.
