HÀ NỘI — The first turbine of the Trung Sơn plant, Việt Nam’s first hydropower project with credit loaned from the World Bank, in Thanh Hóa Province has begun generating electricity for the national grid.

The Electricity of Việt Nam (EVN) Group said it is among four turbines with combined capacity of 260MW at the factory, located in Quan Hoa District.

The project is invested by Trung Sơn Hydropower Co Ltd, a subsidiary of the EVN Power Generation Corporation 2.

When fully operational, the plant is expected to provide more than 1 billion kWh for the national grid each year and will help to control flooding in the downstream Mã River.

Construction of the plant began in November 2012. The fourth turbine is scheduled to be put into operation in the second quarter of 2017, according to Trung Sơn company’s website. — VNS
