HÀ NỘI — POSCO Energy Co has been received in-principal approval from the Government to develop a thermal power plant that will cost approximately US$2.5 billion in central Nghệ An Province.
Quỳnh Lập II thermal power plant will be built using the Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) method in Đông Hồi Industrial Zone, Hoàng Mai Commune. It will produce an annual power capacity of 1,200 megawatts (MW), with two reactors, baodautu.vn reports.
