Two new thermal power plants licensed

The USD 2.07 billion BOT Nam Dinh 1 thermal power plant, the largest ever investment project in Nam Dinh province, covers an area of more than 242 hectares in Hai Chau and Hai Ninh communes, Hai Hau district.

Addressing the licensing ceremony on July 2, Deputy Minister of Planning and Investment Dang Huy Dong stressed Vietnam’s increasing demand for electricity in service of economic development.

Therefore, he said, the implementation of the project is expected to create a momentum for the provincial socio-economic development while supplying more electricity for Nam Dinh as well as the Red River delta and the country at large.

Another project having the investment license is the BOT Nghi Son 2 thermal power plant in Thanh Hoa province.

The project has drawn a total investment capital of nearly USD 2.8 billion from Japanese investors. It will be designed and developed under the build, operate and transfer (BOT) model with a capacity of 1,200 MW, the local media reported.

Thanks to the two thermal power projects, Thanh Hoa and Nam Dinh were among the top three provinces attracting the largest foreign investment in the first half of 2017.

Thanh Hoa ranked first with a total registered capital of USD3.06 billion, accounting for 15.9 percent of the total investment.
