HCM CITY (VNS)— Electricity of Viet Nam's Southern Power Corporation (EVN SPC) plans to install more power projects and power grids in 21 southern provinces in 2014.
According to Nguyen Thanh Duy, director general of EVN SPC, the third power line of 500kV will connect central and southern Viet Nam.
The corporation will also use several power stations in the south, instead of depending on power transfer from the northern and central regions.
Since early 2014, EVN SPC will put into operation the thermal power stations of Vinh Tan and Vung Ang 1 (with power of 600MW), and the hydro-power station of Dak Ring (62.5 MW) and Nam Na 2 (22MW).
In addition, the undersea cable connecting Ha Tien town of southern Kien Giang Province with its Phu Quoc Island will be operable beginning January 1, with power of 110kV. The undersea cable, worth VND2.34 trillion ($110.82 million), has a length of 56km.
The EVN SPC plan for the south will help provide power to more than 6.2 million EVN customers and will also reduce the number of power shortages. — VNS
