Besides this, the corporation is the investor of the 1.32GW Van Phong 1 coal-fired power plant, which began commercial operations in mid-June.
The $2.58 billion project is being developed in Khanh Hoa on a build-operate-transfer (BOT) basis. The power generated by the plant will be transferred to the national grid across 500kV transmission lines from the on-site Van Phong switchyard, which is already available for use. The plant’s electricity output will be sold to state-owned utility Vietnam Electricity.
