National power firm plans 2017 expansion

The National Power Transmission Corporation (EVN NPT) said it plans to put 63 projects worth more than VND21.2 trillion (US$934.43 million) into operation in 2017.

The key power transmission projects include the 500kV Thăng Long - Long Phú – O Mon line, the 220kV Long Phu – Soc Trăng, and Long Phú – Can Thơ – Tra Noc lines, the 500kV Lai Châu transformer station, and transmission lines connected to Thái Bình thermal power plant.

Several major upgrade projects will also be completed, such as the 500kV Viet Tri transformer station, the 220kV Dong Hoi – Dong Ha and Dong Ha – Hue lines and the 220kV Bình Long – Tay Ninh lines.

The corporation will operate projects designed to ensure power supply for Ha Noi, HCM City, and key economic zones.

In 2017, EVN NPT hopes to complete procedures to launch 42 upgrade and support projects, while drafting investment plans and arranging funding for those to be put into operation after 2017.

The corporation will also make efforts to ensure the pace of projects funded by loans from foreign agencies.

EVN NPT Deputy Director General Tran Quoc Lam said the corporation has urged leaders of its subsidiaries to build plans for the approved projects and aim to hit targets from the beginning of the year.

The corporation will strengthen technology application while bettering relevant documents and management and supervision to enhance efficiency of the projects.

In 2017, EVN NPT will also work with localities to accelerate land clearance for transmission projects.
