Binh Thuan leads wind energy investments in Vietnam

Vietnam's province of Binh Thuan now has 16 wind energy projects with investments from 12 domestic and foreign businesses.

 

It now leads the country in developing wind energy aiming to generate a total capacity of more than 2,000MW.

Tran Van Nhut, head of the provincial Department of Industry and Trade, says the province has provided preferential policies to attract investment in the field and Binh Thuan aims to become the centre for ‘green energy’ in the country.

A 25 wind-turbine project implemented by the Vietnam Renewable Energy Joint Stock Company in Tuy Phong district has been completed and has already contributed nearly 50 million KWh to the national electricity network.

Another on Phu Quy Island has been scheduled for operation. 

Developing wind energy will protect the environment and help solve power shortages. It will also create jobs for many local people.

However, the province now faces the problem of training adequate  numbers of quality human resources and many wind power projects still have to employ foreign experts.
