Date: 10/10/2012 2:02:25 PM
The 10th turbine in southern Bac Lieu Province’s sea wind-power project was installed successfully two days ago, completing the first phase of the project.

These turbines were provided by the US firm General Electric (GE) and have capacity of 1.6 megawatts each. The turbine is made of titan steel, weighs nearly 210 tones, and measures 80 meters in height and 4 meters in diameter.

The Bac Lieu-based Cong Ly Construction and Trading Co Ltd has relied on the efforts of 1, 000 workers over the past 18 months to install the turbines.

Under the project, 62 turbines with total capacity of 99.2 MW will be installed at a total cost of VND5,200 billion ($US250 million), which is sourced from loans provided by the US Import and Export Bank.

In the second phase, contractors will install 52 other turbines which will be capable of producing 400 million kWh of electricity per year when fully operational.

The wind-power project in Bac Lieu is getting fast-tracked so it can start supplying power to the national grid as early as possible.
