Two new solar power plants are scheduled to be built in the central province of Ha Tinh, with total capacity of 58MWp.

The Cam Hung solar power plant will be built in Cam Xuyen District’s Cam Hung and Cam Quan communes in 2018-20. It will cover an area of 29ha with capacity of 29MWp.

The Son Quang solar power plant is planned for Huong Son District’s Son Quang Commune with the same capacity.

The Northern Power Corporation under the Electricity of Viet Nam (EVN) will mobilise capital for the two plants as planned to ensure progress and power supply.

Duong Tat Thang, vice chairman of the provincial People’s Committee, said the two plants were the initial results of Ha Tinh Province’s trade promotion efforts in Germany.

Thang said that the Ministry of Industry and Trade approved the adjusted and supplemented planning for electricity development in Ha Tinh Province in the 2016-25 period.

Earlier, Ha Tinh’s leaders held a meeting with Nguyen Huu Trang, Trade Counsellor of the Vietnamese Embassy to Germany, management board of the Viet Nam-Germany Industrial Park (GVIP) and businesses from Germany and Italy.

The provincial People’s Committee signed a memorandum of understanding on investment with Ruland Arthur representing the German firms.

The committee issued Document No 7766/UBND-KT on December 8, 2017 allowing German companies to conduct a survey for construction of the two solar power plants. — VNS
