QUANG NGAI (Biz Hub) — The central province of Quang Ngai is developing a 30-Megawatt solar power station in Mo Duc District, which will start operating by the end of the year, the provincial Department of Industry and Trade announced yesterday.

The department said the station, which got construction approval five years ago, will be built with a US$60 million investment from a joint-stock company.

The department said the project will commence this year so it can connect to the national grid. It will be an example of green growth in the province.

In 2005, a solar power project was developed in An Binh Islet of Ly Son Island District, 30km off the coast of Quang Ngai Province. But the district started using power from the national grid at the end of 2014. — VNS
