The local authorities of the Nghe An province (Vietnam) plans to build two floating solar projects on the Vuc Mau and Khe Go lakes in Quynh Luu district totalling 450 MW of capacity. The Vuc Mau project will have an installed capacity of 200 MW, requiring an investment of VND3,100bn (US$134m), while the 250 MW Khe Go project will cost VND3,473bn (US$150m). Power generation will be sold to the national power utility Electricity of Vietnam (EVN).

As of July 2020, Vietnam’s total capacity reaches 49 GW, with 41% of hydro and 38% of coal. Solar account for less than 1% of the total. However, more than 1.5 GW of solar capacity is under construction and 10 GW is under development.
