Vinh Son-Song Hinh hydro-power profit down

HCM CITY(VNS)– Vinh Son Song Hinh Hydro-Power Co (VSH) posed a reduced net profit of just VND45.45 billion (US$2.2 million) in the third quarter, down 20 per cent compared to the same period of last year.

The company's power production reached 149.71 million kWh during the period, down more than 11 per cent year-on-year. Electricity sales totalled VND56.86 billion ($2.7 million), down at a higher rate of over 21 per cent year-on-year because the company has yet to sign a power purchase agreement with Electricity of Viet Nam (EVN).According to the semi-annual report review, the audit said the old power purchase contract between EVN and VSH expired in 2009 and the company has not signed a new contract yet. — VNS
