The PetroVietnam Power Corporation yesterday began construction on a project to build the Phu Quy wind-power plant on Phu Quy Island in central Binh Thuan Province. The plant, with a total investment of more than VND 335 billion (US$17.08 million), is expected to open in February 2011.

It will have a capacity of 6MW, including three 2MW turbines, with an annual electricity output of about 25.4 million Kwh. The plant will operate together with a diesel-power plant now located on the island.

Project contractors include the Viet Nam Electronics and Informatics Joint-Stock Corporation (VEIC), the Viettronic Joint-Stock Company (VIETCT) and the Amec Technology Joint-Stock company. The electricity supply from the diesel plant has a total capacity of only 3,000kW, and only works for 16 hours per day.

Because of the shortage of power, residents and businesses on the island have to use generators that have a total capacity of about 1,000kW. The project will help ease the current power shortage on the island and enhance the socio-economic development of the island, according to local authorities.
