Mekong Delta Wind Power Plant To Be Completed By 2015

The wind energy plant – with a capacity of 500 MW – will be built in Vinh Trach Dong commune and will have centres in Tra Vinh province’s Duyen Hai district and Vinh Chau district in Soc Trang province.

The wind turbines plant is expected to provide sufficient electricity supply for the Mekong Delta, promote investment in industrial projects and reduce the impact of climate change.

Last October, the Vietnam Development Bank (VDB) signed an agreement with the Export-Import Bank of the United States (US Eximbank) where a US$1 billion loan would be used to fund the wind energy project.
