China Power Construction signs Southeast Asia’s largest wind power project

As a leading company serving the Belt and Roadconstruction and the largest power contractor in Laos, Power China recently signed a business contract with a local Thai company for a 1,000-megawatt wind power project in Sekong Province, Laos, after continuing to build the countrys first wind power project. And once again refreshed the previous project record, becoming the largest wind power project in Southeast Asia.

This project is located in southern Laos. The main contents of the project include the design, procurement, and construction of a 1,000-megawatt wind farm, and the construction of related infrastructure such as power transmission. The annual power generation capacity is approximately 2.4 billion kilowatt-hours.

The project will transmit electricity to neighboring countries through cross-border transmission lines, making an important contribution to Laos’ creation of a “Southeast Asian battery” and promoting power interconnection in Indochina. This project is a landmark project in Laosnew energy development plan and will become the largest wind power project in Southeast Asia upon completion.

Since PowerChina entered the Laos market in 1996, it has been extensively involved in project contracting and investment in Laos’ power, transportation, municipal administration and other fields. It is an important participant in the economic construction and development of Laos and the largest power contractor in Laos.

It is worth mentioning that in Sergon Province, Power Construction Corporation of China also undertook the general contract construction of the 600-megawatt wind farm in Muang Son. The project has an annual power generation of approximately 1.72 billion kilowatt-hours. It is the first wind power project in Laos. Construction started in March this year. The first wind turbine has been successfully hoisted and has entered the full start-up stage of unit hoisting. After completion, it will mainly transmit electricity to Vietnam, enabling Laos to realize cross-border transmission of new energy power for the first time. The total installed capacity of the two wind farms will reach 1,600 megawatts, which will reduce carbon dioxide emissions by approximately 95 million tons during their expected lifespan.
