Phu Yen People’s Committee has allowed Song Cau Green Energy JSC to develop a wind farm, making it the first wind power project in the province.
The first phase of the wind farm has an investment capital of VND1.76 trillion ($76.5 million) with the capacity of 50MW. The farm is located at Xuan Hai and Xuan Canh commune, Song Cau town with the area of 11.55 hectares.
It combines with an operating house, 11 turbines with 4.54MW each, a transformer substation, and a 110kV power line system.
The first phase of the farm is expected to be completed in June 2021 with the capacity to generate 131.53GWh per year. It will contribute to deal with the lack of power for the country and the province.
The investor is in charge of cooperating with related agencies to complete the procedures for the signed investment fund, land use right, and changing the land use purpose of the forest, among others.
As of now, Phu Yen has two projects with the total capacity of 350MW, which have been approved by the prime minister to be added to the Power Development Master Plan VII (adjusted). One is Song Cau Green Energy and the other is HBRE An Tho wind farm invested by HBRE Group. In addition, numerous other investors are studying and surveying projects in the province.
