Hau Giang Bioenergy Joint Stock Company (HBE) held a groundbreaking ceremony for the Hau Giang Biomass Power Plant Project with a total investment of VND875 billion (US$36.5 million) on Thursday.

Truong Ngoc Thuy Trang, director of HBE, said that the project with a capacity of 2x10 MW was built in Thuan An Ward, Long My Town, with a scale of over 10 hectares.

It is expected to be completed and put into use in the fourth quarter of 2024.

When put into operation, this would be a grid-connected biomass power plant, using rice husk fuel, contributing to diversifying power generation sources and ensuring energy security in the province in particular and the Mekong Delta region in general, said Trang.

In addition, the project will provide about 125 GWh per year of electricity for the needs of the local electricity load growth, create jobs for workers, and contribute to the provincial socio-economic development with estimated revenue at about VND200 billion per year. — VNS
