Wind Energy – Vietnam
Infrastructure Investment and Transportation Construction Joint Stock Company (Intracom) from Vietnam met with Quang Tri Province to discuss the research of the first-ever offshore wind farm in the province.
The two parties also worked on March 19 on an additional document to add the farm into the national grid and the power planning VIII energy policy.
According to the proposal, the offshore wind farm has a total project investment of US$3.1 billion and a capacity of 1,000 MW over an area of 22,000 ha.
It will be 15km from Con Co Marine Protected Area, and 8km from My Thuy port.
Intracom said the initial survey of the project research area did not overlap with the sea in terms of national security and defence, aquaculture, or My Thuy port planning.
The Intracom offshore wind farm was designed to be connected on the 500kV transmission line from Vung Ang to Da Nang, or on the 500kV transmission line from Quang Trach to Doc Soi.
Vice Chairman of Quang Tri Provincial People’s Committee Ha Si Dong said: “It is a project that brings efficiency and high economic results for the locality, thereby showing the determination of investors in the process of researching.”
