The BMT solar power farm in Krong Pak District, Dak Lak Province, was inaugurated on Thursday, becoming the third solar power plant in the Central Highlands province to generate electricity for the national grid.

According to BMT Energy Renewable JSC, the plant’s investor, the facility was built at a cost of VND617 billion (around US$26.44 million) and has a capacity of 30MWp. It is expected to supply more than 44MWh of electricity to the national grid each year.

At the foot of Krong Buk Ha dam, the plant will also serve as a tourist destination.

The company said it is conducting surveys for a wind power farm in Cu M’gar District with an estimated investment of more than $200 million.

Pham Thai, Director of the provincial Department of Industry and Trade, said investors have proposed a total of 32 solar power projects in Dak Lak.

Besides the BMT farm in Krong Pak, several other solar power plants with total capacity of nearly 700MWp will be put into operation at between 50 to 100 per cent capacity this year.

In March this year, the Srepok 1 – Quang Minh solar power complex with a combined capacity of 100MWp was commissioned in Buon Don District. The complex had total investment of VND2.2 trillion ($94.27 million). — VNS
