Vietnam’s First Wind Power Plant

Southern island to house Vietnam’s first wind power plant

A Swiss corporation has recently won the license to build Vietnam’s first wind power plant on Con Dao island of the coast of Ba Ria Vung Tau Province, reported local authorities.

The corporation will build a US$19 million 6MW wind power plant at Chim Chim Cape.

The provincial authorities said they are considering asking the partner to construct a second plant on the island’s Ca Map (shark) cape after completing the initial project.

Now, electricity provided for the archipelago with a population of around 5,000 habitants is generated from a 3MW diesel power plant.

Besides the two wind power plants, Con Dao plans to build two more electricity plants – one gas, one coal.

Situated at about 185km southeast of Vung Tau and 230km from Ho Chi Minh City, Con Dao is an archipelago of 16 islands.
