CÀ MAU — The People’s Committee of Cà Mau Province has proposed adding two projects to the National Electricity Development Plan for the 2021-2030 period, with a vision to 2050.
The two projects include a transmission line with a capacity of 500KVA and a floating warehouse on the sea.
The southern province said that many investors had expressed interest in gas power projects in the province.
In addition, the State-owned Việt Nam Oil and Gas Group (PVN) has proposed building the Cà Mau Gas Power Plant No.3 with a capacity of 1,500 MW.
Nguyễn Tiến Hải, director of the People's Committee, said that PVN had invested and put into use a gas-electricity-fertiliser industrial zone in the province.
The industrial zone has played an important role in the province's socio-economic development. It contains two gas power plants, including the Cà Mau gas power plant No.1 and Cà Mau gas power plant No.2.
Since starting operation in 2008, the two plants have provided 84 billion kWh of electricity to the national grid and VNĐ2.9 trillion (US$125 million) to the local budget. — VNS
