The number of wind turbines built is about 150-200 turbines. Each turbine has a capacity of 15-20 MW, connected to the national grid at a voltage of 500kV. Total investment is expected to be 8-10 billion USD.
The project will be developed in phases. The commercial operation period of phase 1 is expected from 2027-2030, with an output of 500 MW; phase 2, phase 3 is from 2030-2035 (depending on the progress of grid development), with a total capacity of 2.5GW.

Quang Ninh has proposed to the Ministry of Industry and Trade to add more MW of electricity to the draft Power Plan VIII. Specifically, additionally develop 5,000MW of wind power in the period of 2021-2040, of which 3,000MW is offshore wind power and 2,000MW is onshore wind power; in the period 2021-2030 is 2,500MW (offshore is 500MW and onshore is 2,000MW).
In addition to the LNG gas power plant project that has been invested in Cam Pha City with a capacity of 1,500MW, many investors now come to learn, research, invest and develop renewable energy, including wind power. in Quang Ninh. Because Quang Ninh has up to 250km of sea route, with the best electricity transmission and connection infrastructure in the country.
