The Korea- Tra Vinh intertidal wind farm (Phase 1) will comprise 24 2MW wind turbines installed offshore the Mekong Delta province of Tra Vinh.

The project will reportedly feature Vestas wind turbines and is expected to be completed by September 2020.

The wind farm covers 1,209 hectares of water surface and 2.14 hectares of land, the developer said.

The project is valued at USD 120 million and is being developed jointly by Tra Vinh Wind Power, Korea’s Samtan, and the Netherlands-based Climate Investor One.

This is the first of two phases of a planned 144MW intertidal project.
