Vietnam plans to build 15 power plants

Feb 24, 1997 01:00 AM

Vietnam is planning to build 15 new power stations by 2010 to meet burgeoning demand and avert blackouts, an official at the state electricity company said. The Electricity of Vietnam (EVN) official, said it would cost $ 1.0 to $ 1.5 bn a year to achieve a more immediate target of adding 3,000 MW to annual power capacity by 2000. Vietnam currently has 12 power stations generating about 4,400 MW a year, some 67 % of which comes from hydro-electric plants. According to a masterplan by the government's Institute of Energy, electricity power demand, 2,800 MW in 1995, will grow by at least 11.6 % a year between now and 2010. Two gas turbine generators with total capacity of 300 MW are due to go into operation at Phu My in Ba Ria-Vung Tau province soon and two others of similar capacity are expected to be installed at Tra Noc in Can Tho province later in the year. The government has also undertaken a feasibility study for what would be the country's first nuclear power plant. The Institute of Atomic Energy hopes the study will be complete by late 1998.
