Kampot wind farm project to be the first in Cambodia
Cambodia wind farm: Cambodia’s first wind power project, being studied by The Blue Circle (Cambodia), is approaching the construction phase as the company is currently discussing the sale price with Electricité du Cambodge (EDC).
Chea Sophorn, development director of The Blue Circle (Cambodia), said that if EDC accepts the final price offered, the company will immediately start construction.
He added that the company chose Kampot to invest in the construction of wind power plants after studying the potential across the country since 2016.
Cambodia is subject to two monsoon periods, and the company initially found that Cambodia had a wind power potential of at least 1,300 MW, with 120 MW ready for deployment.
“The first Blue Circle wind project in Kampot can produce 225 GWh of clean electricity per year, which could power 150,000 homes and save more than 130,000 tonnes of CO2 equivalent each year. This is crucial for Cambodia to meet the PARIS 2015 commitment on climate change and the Sustainable Development Goals,” said Mr Sophorn.
According to a recent report on clean energy, wind power projects are among the most renewable energy sources, including hydro and solar power.
In recent years, a number of solar power projects have been built in Cambodia, with solar power prices for the national grid ranging from 7 to 7.6 cents per kilowatt hour, while wind power costs have been raised to 6.85 cents per kilowatt hour.
