The Vĩnh Châu Renewable Energy Joint Stock Company is the main investor of the project, worth more than VNĐ1.3 trillion (US$56 million) in the first phase.
 
The power plant will cover a coastal area of about 700 hectares in Lạc Hòa Commune and Ward 2 in Vĩnh Châu Town.
 
Phạm Văn Hiếu, director of the company, said the plant would have eight turbines, with a capacity of 30MW in the first phase.
 
“The new plant will help create jobs for many local workers,” Hiếu said.
 
The plant is expected to contribute 160 million kWh of electricity annually to the national grid after its two construction phases are completed in the second quarter of 2021.
 
Lâm Hoàng Nghiệp, deputy chairman of the provincial People’s Committee, said the plant would help provide a stable supply of power in the region and contribute to local economic restructuring and growth.
 
Nghiệp has asked the investor to complete the project on schedule and ensure project quality and efficiency.
 
With an average wind speed of 6-6.4 metres per second, Sóc Trăng has great potential for wind power development.
 
The province has been seeking investment in wind power projects since 2018.
 
In February 2018, construction on the province's first wind power plant on 2,500ha began in Vĩnh Châu Town’s Lai Hòa Commune with a capacity of 98MW.
 
The total cost for three phases is more than VNĐ5.39 trillion ($233 million), invested in by the Super Wind Energy Công Lý Sóc Trăng Joint Stock Company.
 
The plant’s first phase is expected to be completed in 36 months.
