BCG Energy opens solar farm in Vietnam’s Mekong Delta province

BCG Energy put the VNECO Vinh Long solar farm with a capacity of 49.3 MW into operation in Vinh Long Province, located in Vietnam’s Mekong Delta region, on Wednesday.

Construction of the solar farm began on November 6, marking the shortest construction time of less than two months among solar farms under 50 MW in the country.

The project, built on 49.7 hectares, cost VND1.156 trillion (US$49.9 million) and is included in the province’s power development plan for the 2016-25 period with a vision for 2035.

It will generate around 70 million KW of electricity annually, meeting power needs of 26,000 households and reducing CO2 emissions by 19,000 metric tons a year.

According to the provincial Department of Industry and Trade, with an average annual lighting time of 2,550-2,700 hours and radiation potential of about 4.67 kWh/sqm per day, Vinh Long has favorable conditions for the development of solar power projects.

The project marks an important milestone in the province’s energy sector.

It will help boost economic growth, create jobs, add energy to the national grid system, ensure energy security, and contribute to the protection of natural resources and the environment.

BCG Energy is one of the pioneers in clean energy development in Vietnam.

The company has put into operation several rooftop solar power projects with a combined capacity of 43MW in 2020, and will continue to deploy more similar projects with the total capacity of more than 100MW in the future.
