BINH DINH - Three rooftop solar power projects at the Phu Tai Industrial Park, Quy Nhon City, Binh Dinh Province, with a total investment of VND43.54 billion will be put into operation later this year.

Approved by the Binh Dinh Economic Zone and Industrial Parks Authority, these projects are invested in by Nam Quan Energy Co., Phuoc Hoa Production and Trade Co. and Quang Nam Industrial Investment and Construction Co., with a capacity of 990 KWP, 810 KWP and 974 KWP, respectively.

These are the three latest projects among many solar and wind power projects for which Binh Dinh is seeking investors.

Reportedly, the Binh Dinh Province People's Committee has submitted a proposal to the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development to report to the Prime Minister a plan to use 28.29 hectares of forest land to build the Phu My 3 solar power plant.

The plant with a capacity of 100MWp will need an estimated investment of more than VND2 trillion.

It is part of the large-scale Phu My solar power complex with a total capacity of 330MWp deployed on an area of 323 hectares.

Beginning late May 2020, the complex worth VND6.2 trillion was invested in by the Clean Energy Vision Development JSC - a member company of the Bamboo Capital Group.

It is estimated that once the project is put into operation, it would produce some 520 million kWh of electricity per year and help reduce CO2 emissions by some 146,000 tons.

According to Nguyen Phi Long, Chairman of Binh Dinh Provincial People's Committee, the central province has great potential to develop renewable energy, especially wind and solar power.

The province has submitted 24 solar power investment projects to the Government for approval. However, only five of them have been granted licenses.

Currently, the province is home to three operational renewable energy projects— the Phuong Mai 3 wind power plant, the Fujiwara Binh Dinh wind and solar power plant and the Cat Hiep solar power project.

Previously, German renewable energy group PNE was keen to invest in an offshore US$4.8 billion wind farm in the central province of Binh Dinh, in three phases.
