QUANG NAM (VNS) — Thanh My-Nam Giang's 500 kilowatt (kV) transformer station is operational and was connected to the National 500kV grid last week, the Management Board of Power Projects in the Central Region revealed.
The station, which was built with a total investment of VND928 billion (US$44 million) in the second phase, will help improve power transmission from the Xe Kaman 3 Hydro-power Plant in Laos and through the Dak Mi 1, Dak Mi 4, Song Bung 2 and Song Bung 3 plants in Quang Nam Province.
The first phase of the project was completed and connected to the national power network in 2011.
Lines one and two of the trans-Viet Nam 500 kV station and line 3 connecting Pleiku, My Phuoc and Cau Bong were completed last year. — VNS
