NDO - Deputy Prime Minister Vuong Dinh Hue and local leaders cut the ribbon on July 1 to inaugurate the first solar farm in the central province of Ha Tinh.

The 50-megawatt Cam Hoa farm covers 60 hectares in Cam Hoa commune of Cam Xuyen district and has been invested in by Hoanh Son Corporation at a total cost of over VND1.4 trillion (US$60.2 million).

The plant was completed after five months and features 152,670 solar panels and 17 kilometres of wiring.

On the same day, Deputy PM Hue also attended a ceremony to inaugurate the Ha Tinh Stadium, the home ground of the Ha Tinh Football Club.

The original stadium was built in 1991 with a capacity of 20,000 seats as part of the provincial sports complex in Nam Ha ward of the province’s capital city.

It was partly renovated in 2003 but remained in poor condition. In April 2019, the Ha Tinh government decided to rebuild the stadium at a cost of VND51.4 billion (US$2.21 million).

Following the inauguration, a friendly match was held between Ha Tinh and Song Lam Nghe An.
