The Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) has considered financing two wind power projects in Vietnam’s Central Highlands provinces of Dak Lak and Gia Lai, with loans worth $160 million, local media reported.

The 200-megawatt (MW) Dak Lak project costs $345.8 million. The project cost includes $115.8 million in equity and $230 million in loans, of which $100 million will likely come from AIIB and $130 million from commercial banks. AIIB is expected to provide its final review decision in the third quarter (Q3) of 2023 and financing approval in Q4/2023.

The 99-MW Gia Lai project costs $60 million which will likely be financed by AIIB. The bank is scheduled to give its appraisal decision in Q2/2023 and then financial approval in Q3/2023.
