The DOIT of Ho Chi Minh City  proposed to add Can Gio offshore wind power plant project to the list of potential offshore wind power in the Power Plan VIII.

According to EVN Ho Chi Minh, the detailed report for the project is still not accurate in choosing the technology for turbines to generate electricity, they suggest that the investor should revise it.



According to DPI of Ho Chi Minh City: based on the guidelines and policies of the Government, the research to attract wind power projects is a basis for consideration. However, this wind power project is expected to use 325,000 hectares of sea surface, which will have huge economic, social and environmental impacts, so it is necessary to fully assess the impacts, especially for the mangrove area.
