Another plant, invested by the Phong Nguyen Wind Power JSC in the central city of Da Nang, will span more than 16ha in two communes of Tan Thanh and Huong Phung. The plant, worth 1.6 trillion VND, is expected to be operational in 2021.
Meanwhile, the Phong Huy wind power plant costs more than 1.6 trillion VND. Spanning 16ha in Tan Thanh and Huong Tan communes, the plant will provide 151 million kWh of electricity once operational in 2021.
The provincial People’s Committee asked the investors to implement their projects on time, while complying with regulations related to investment, land, taxes, construction and environmental protection.
Quang Tri has a great potential for wind energy and the province has been reforming administrative procedures and improving the investment environment to attract more investors to renewable energy projects in the locality.
It plans to become an energy hub for the central region. As of June, the province was home to 58 wind power projects.
