Vietnam’s first two nuclear power plants with a total capacity of 4,000 megawatts will be built in the central coastal province of Ninh Thuan, reported

The plants are expected to start commercial operations in 2020, according to the Vietnam News Agency, construction of the plants will begin in 2014.

“The construction of the plants is the best and necessary option to ensure the national power security,” Deputy Prime Minister Hoang Truing Hay told a conference in the province on Thursday.

The most modern and safest technologies in the world would be selected for the plants, Hay said.

The government forecasts that electricity demand will rise about 13 percent this year, Bloomberg reported. The news service said Vietnam has been considering the commercial nuclear power option at least since 2002.
