AIF Group (Laos) and Shizen Energy Group (Japan) are the two strategic partners of the project. The plant will supply over 70 millions kwh to the national electrical grid per year, reduce the emission of 50,000 tons of CO2 per year. This is the first wind farm operation in Binh Dinh province. The plant achieved COD in Q1.2020 with the estimated annual revenue of 140 billion dongs.
Renewable energy investment is the strategic business of Halcom Vietnam Jsc. The Company sets the goal of achieving 300MW RE capacity in 3-5 years. The Company is constructing a solar power plant in Hau Giang with the capacity of 35 MWp, expected to achieve COD by December, 2020.
