QUẢNG TRỊ — A ground-breaking ceremony has been held to kiick off the construction of the 1,320-megawatt Quảng Trị 1 thermal power plant. 

The project, located in the central province of Quảng Trị, is undertaken by Thailand’s EGAT International Company Limited under a build-operate-transfer contract.

The coal-fired plant using supercritical technology will have two turbines, with a capacity of 660 megawatts each.
