ASEAN KEY DESTINATIONS
The Electricity of Viet Nam Group (EVN), which invested US$1.57 billion in the plant, and the contractor, Dongfang Electric Power Corporation (China), were asked to carry out their commitments, ensure rapid construction and engage in only environmentally-sound practices.
The plant offers a total installed capacity of 1,245MW, with an average output power from 7.5 to 8 billion kWh per year, using coal fuel and thermal power technology consistent with Viet Nam's anthracite coal. The plant will also meet all criteria regarding productivity, stability, safety and environmental protection.
By 2010's close, the government will invest in the construction of Co Chien Bridge, which would link Ben Tre and Tra Vinh provinces, in order to facilitate further development of the region. The bridge is expected to be finished within in three years.
The EVN launched three other projects this year, including Nghi Son Oil Refinery, Song Bung 2 Hydropower Project and Vinh Tan 2 Thermal Power Plant.
