Representatives of UPC said that Quang Binh has favorable conditions for investors to invest in wind power projects thanks to the convenient transportation system, especially seaport for transporting materials and equipment.

The two wind power plants are expected to be completed within 13 months and put into operation by December 2020.

The first farm will cost more than US$88 million to build and be designed with a capacity of 50MW and a power output of 158 million KWh a year.

The second farm will cover an area of 130 ha and has a designed capacity of 250 MW and a power output of 760 million kWh per year. The investment capital spent for this project is estimated at over VND10.2 trillion (US$450 million).
