At the announcement ceremony held on June 13 in Binh Thuan, EE founder and chairman Ian Hatton said the corporation will conduct survey on an area of 2,800 square kilometres about 20-50 km from the Binh Thuan shore. The wind farm, named Thanglong Wind, will cover just 25-30 percent of the surveyed area.

Based on the survey, the EE will make necessary reports in accordance with the law, with the aim of connecting the first phase of the Thanglong Wind project to the national grid at the end of 2022 or early 2023.

The first phase of the project will build 64 turbines with total capacity of 600 MW.

The following four phases, each with capacity of 600MW, will be commissioned during the period fro 2023 to 2026.

The last phase, Thanglong Wind 6 will have a capacity of 400 MW, bringing the total capacity of the project to 3,400 MW.

Total investment in the project is estimated at 11.9 billion USD, excluding the costs for connecting the farm with the national grid.

According to Hatton, the project will turn Vietnam into the leading country in Southeast Asia in developing offshore wind power.

On the occasion, EE launched the official website of the project at Thanglongwind.com.
