Danish-funded project provides solar power to Ben Tre waterworks

A Danish-funded solar energy project was inaugurated in the Mekong Delta province of Ben Tre on May 21, providing power to two local waterworks and contributing to ensuring a sustainable clean water supply to 4,200 households in seven communes. 

The VND4.7 billion (US$211,000) project, which was put into operation earlier this month as part of a climate change response programme, includes two power supply systems for waterworks in An Phu Trung commune in Ba Tri district and Phu Duc commune in Chau Thanh district.

The solar power systems help the waterworks save electricity and reduce emission, thus helping protect the environment. 
Also on May 21, Ben Tre province also put into operation a shrimp farming project adapting to climate change. 

The project, begun in September last year at an overall cost of VND20.4 billion, has received US$18.4 billion and farming technology from the Danish Government and the rest from Ben Tre province. 

The pilot project aims to develop a closed shrimp farming, a modern clean farming method in which water and shrimp diseases are well-controlled. It is also expected to be applied widely in the province.
