This fire happened at 10.45am at the 1,200MW Vinh Tan 4 thermal power plant at its chimney. The fire is controlled at 11.30am and no casualties have been reported. Officials are investigating the cause of the fire according to Electricity of Vietnam (EVN).
In March 2014, EVN held the ground-breaking ceremony of the VND36 trillion ($1.6 billion) Vinh Tan 4 power project, one of the four designed plants in the 5,600MW Vinh Tan power centre. The power centre will generate power mostly for the southern region.
The construction of Vinh Tan 4 is also carried out by four main contractors, namely Doosan, Mitsubishi Corporation, and domestic Pacific Ocean Engineering JSC and Power Engineering and Consulting 2 JSC. Once completed and fully operational by 2018, this power plant is projected to contribute about 7.2 billion kWh per year to the national grid.
