Ba Ria-Vung Tau approves two solar power projects
Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province has approved two solar power projects in Chau Duc District, proposed by HCMC-based investors, with total capital exceeding VND1.5 trillion.
Energy Co., Ltd. was licensed to develop Tam Bo Reservoir solar power plant project at Tam Bo Reservoir. The plant, covering some 40 hectares of the lake’s water surface and valued at over VND790 billion, is to be operated for 49 years. With a peak capacity of 35 megawatts, it can generate annual output of more than 52,000 MWh.
The energy company was asked to work with district authorities to select an appropriate architectural design for the plant, so that it will not negatively impact the landscape of the nearby Kim Long Urban Center.
Also, the DTD Natural Energy Investment Co., Ltd. will build a 35-MWp solar power plant, covering 40 hectares of water surface in Gia Hoet 1 Reservoir, for the same duration of operations. This project will cost an estimated VND760 billion.
The two projects are located within Quang Thanh Commune.
The provincial government requires both investors to work with competent agencies to complete essential procedures, implement the projects in line with prevailing regulations, and demonstrate remedial environmental measures, in case of incidents.
They must also ensure that construction of the projects will not affect the quality of water and structure of the reservoirs, as well as surrounding landscapes.
