The 96-megawat plant, worth VND4,952 billion (or US$247.6 million) and located on 2,500 hectares of land and water surface, has 48 wind turbines, which are expected to generate more than 332,438 MWh of power per year.
The plant was designed to contribute to ensuring the energy demand for the province and neighboring areas in the Mekong Delta.
The first phase of the plant is scheduled to complete February next year, generating over 173,000 MWh of power every year.
Tra Vinh sets the target to increase wind power output to 634 million kWh by 2020, said Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Tran Anh Dung.
