Two wind power plants have been put into operation in the Mekong Delta province of Soc Trang’s Vinh Chau Town.

One of them – Lac Hoa 1 Wind Power Plant – is located in Ward 2 and run by the Vinh Chau Renewable Energy JSC – TDC. Costing more than VND2.4 trillion, the plant’s first phase began in December 2019. It has six turbines with a total capacity of 30MW, one 22/110 kV - 40 MVA transformer station, and a 9km 110 kV transmission line.

The second, operated by Quoc Vinh Soc Trang Wind Power Company Limited, is situated in Vinh Hai Ward. The VND1.42 trillion plant consists of six turbines with a capacity of 30MW.

Speaking at a ceremony to open the two facilities last week, Deputy Chairman of the Soc Trang People’s Committee Vuong Quoc Nam asked the investors to effectively manage and operate the plants.

He said the province is currently implementing 20 wind power projects with a total capacity of 1,435 MW. To date, four projects, together capable of generating 110.8MW, have been put into commercial operation. — VNS
