HA NOI (VNS) — Viet Nam Electricity (EVN), the national utility, publicly apologised yesterday for the pollution and suffering to residents caused by a thermal power plant in Binh Thuan Province.

Residents of Tuy Phong District in the central province had taken their protest against the utility's actions to the streets.

The power plant's 15,000sqm dumping ground for cinder has been fully covered, canvassed and watered to prevent further pollution and work is underway to upgrade roads that will transport the ashes far away from residential areas, it said.

The upgrade is expected to be completed before June this year, the company said.

EVN said it has ordered the Vinh Tan Thermal Plant No.2 to immediately take measures to stop pollution in the future, including the completion of a dedicated water supply system, which is scheduled to be completed before August. — VNS
