The US Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) has awarded a grant to the Cong Ly Construction-Trade-Tourism Company Ltd. to develop a 300MW offshore wind power project in Vietnam.
The feasibility study grant will assist Cong Ly Ltd. in its efforts to develop a third phase of the Bac Lieu Wind Farm. Commercial operation for Phase I of the Bac Lieu Wind Farm, which uses ten GE turbines with a capacity of approximately 16MW, commenced in August 2013. For Phase III, the feasibility study will assist Cong Ly Ltd. in expanding this wind farm through the examination of the technical challenges that arise from an offshore location. The study will include a wind resource and energy assessment, a review of permitting and land control issues, an electrical grid interconnection and foundation design, construction cost estimates, and a financing plan.
