Two Vietnamese companies, namely Trung Nam Construction Investment Corporation (Trungnam Group) and Trung Nam Wind Power Joint Stock Company signed contracts with partners on June 10 to implement wind and solar power projects in the south central province of Ninh Thuan.

Nguyen Tam Thinh, a representative of the Trung Nam Wind Power Joint Stock Company, said the wind power project will be carried out in coordination with the Trung Nam Construction & Engineering Corporation, the Power Engineering Consulting Joint Stock Company No. 4, the Duc Dung Design and Construction Consulting Joint Stock Company, the Lilama 45.3 Joint Stock Company and Green Cosmos Marketing Pty Ltd.

Under the contract, the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) package will be carried out over 20 months effective as of the signing date.

On the occasion, the Green Cosmos Marketing Pty Ltd also signed a contract with the Enercon Group from Germany to provide equipment to install 45 wind turbine towers at the Ninh Thuan plant.

In addition, Trung Nam Group and the Syntegra Solar International AG inked a contract on the solar power project consultation and management.

At the signing ceremony, German Consul General of Germany in Ho Chi Minh City Andreas Siegel said Enercon and Syntegra Solar are two prestigious and major German groups specialising in wind and solar power equipment provision.

Cooperation between Trung Nam Group and the two groups will not only bring about benefits in terms of clean energy development but also serve as a milestone in the Vietnam-Germany economic partnership in the renewable energy industry.

The construction of the Trung Nam wind power plant began in August 2016 with total investment of VND3.96 trillion (US$174.5 million). The factory is set to have a capacity of 90-100 MW, generating 286 million kWh. The first phase of this project is scheduled to be completed in the third quarter of 2018 while phase two will be completed in the second quarter of 2019.

Trung Nam Group is also conducting a feasibility study for a solar power project as part of the wind power project. The company said it plans to develop a 515MW solar power project in Ninh Thuan.
