Lang Son People’s Committee is waiting for the government’s approval to add 4.600MW of wind power to the National Power Development Plan VIII with the addition of 32 wind farm projects by 2030.
The province reports that it allowed 15 foreign and domestic investors to study and survey conditions. They combine Trungnam Group, BayWa r.e. Wind Projects Vietnam Co., Ltd., LICOGI 16 JSC, T&T group, GE, and Sovico group. They installed wind gauges to determine the wind’s strength and consistency.
These investors are willing to pour in billions of dollars to develop wind farms in the province. One of which is An Xuan Energy JSC’s project worth $791.3 million with a capacity of 528MW.
Eurolast – who carried out the preliminary survey on the wind potential in Lang Son – found that Bac Ai commune, Hoa Tham commune, Thuy Hung, and Thach Dan have great potential for wind power development.
In Lang Son, the wind has an average speed of between 4.5 and 7m/s and the province has the potential to develop 6,500MW.
The province estimates that by 2030 if approximately 60 per cent of the technical potential is exploited, it will create revenue of $1.3 billion and a sustainable income for the province.
