HCMC – The Phu My solar farm project in Binh Dinh Province has been put into operation and connected to the national power grid after seven months of construction, making it the largest solar farm in this central province up to now, Bnews news site reported.
Clean Energy Vision Development JSC, a subsidiary of BCG Energy, broke ground on the solar power project on May 29 last year in the communes of My An and My Thang, Phu My District, Binh Dinh Province.
Covering an area of over 380 hectares, the project costs over VND6.2 trillion. Its total designed capacity is 330 MW, which was divided into two phases, including three plants with a capacity of 120 MW, 110 MW and 100 MW, respectively.
After seven months of construction from May 29 to December 31 last year, 216 MW of 330 MW of the solar farm was put into commercial operation. The remaining amount is slated for commercial operation before February 28 this year.
Once the project is fully operational, it is expected to generate an annual output of 520 million kWh, equivalent to the total power consumption of 200,000 households. It will also help reduce carbon dioxide emissions by some 146,000 tons.
Further, the Phu My solar farm will help contribute a stable power source to the country’s production and business activities as well as economic growth. Besides this, its operation will create job opportunities for residents of Binh Dinh.
