Japan’s Mitsubishi Company will develop Southeast Asia’s largest wind farm in Laos to provide electrical energy to Vietnam, the place demand is predicted to develop repeatedly.
The 600-megawatt onshore undertaking, the primary wind farm in Laos, will probably be positioned in the southern provinces of Sekong and Attapeu, the corporate mentioned in a press release.
By putting in a devoted transmission line to Vietnam, energy from the wind farm, which is ready to start industrial operations by 2023, will probably be offered to nationwide utility Vietnam Electrical energy for 25 years.
It’s anticipated that Vietnam’s rising financial system can have excessive energy demand, particularly through the dry season, when hydropower technology is proscribed.
The onshore wind farm is being developed as a part of a memorandum of understanding on energy interchange signed between the Vietnamese and Lao governments in October 2016.
It’s anticipated to be the primary cross-border electrical energy interchange from wind energy technology in Southeast Asia.
