Seven islands will link to power grid

KIEN GIANG  (VNS) — The Electricity of Viet Nam (EVN) will co-ordinate with the southwestern Kien Giang Province to implement a project to connect seven island communes with the national power grid.

The project which is scheduled to commence next month in Lai Son commune in Kien Hai district is estimated to cost about VND1.5 trillion (US$68.1 million), according to tthe EVN.

It comprises the construction of a 44km-long sea crossing, two 110kV substations in Lai Son, a 53km-long medium voltage grid and a 38km-long underground cable system, as well as other electrical facilities.

The seven island communes that will benefit from the project are Son Hai, Hon Nghe, Hon Doc, Lai Son, An Son, Nam Du and Hon Thom.

The project will serve more than 6,800 households in these island communes, helping to stabilise their lives and contribute to developing the marine economy.

The project is expected to help the island communes of Kien Giang Province promote sustainable fisheries, boost tourism and attract investment, thus improving the residents' living standards.

Between 2014 and 2015, Viet Nam Electricity completed two projects to connect Phu Quoc Island and Hon Tre Island – the administrative centre of Kien Hai District — with the national power grid.
