Viet Nam’s Quang Binh AMI Renewables Investment Joint Stocks Company and the Government of Laos on December 8 signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on a feasibility study on a wind farm development project in Laos’ Savannakhet province.

Under the 24-month MoU, in the first stage, the company will conduct a feasibility study on a 252MW wind farm project in an area of nearly 2,700ha in the province’s Sepon district.

If the Savannakhet province approves more land for the project, the company will study to increase the capacity of the wind farm to 1,215MW.

After the MoU’s validity, if the project is feasible in terms of finance and markets, meeting Laos' technical standards on electricity, the Lao Government will allow the company to implement and operate the project in the build-own-operate (BOO) form.

The project is part of the Lao Government's development goal to produce electricity. — VNS
