CẦN THƠ — Japanese JERA Co Inc has expressed a desire to supply liquefied natural gas (LNG) at Ô Môn 1 thermal power plant in the Mekong Delta city of Cần Thơ.
In a working session with vice chairman of the municipal People’s Committee Trương Quang Hoài Nam, JERA’s representative Shinsuke Nakayama said it now has a base depot in Việt Nam and is investing in a LNG warehouse and Cà Ná LNG-fueled power complex with a total capacity of 6,000MW in the south central province of Ninh Thuận.
JERA believes that it is able to ensure a stable LNG supply to Cần Thơ at reasonable prices, firstly for the operation of the Ô Môn 1 thermal power plant, he said.
Deputy general director of the Power Transmission Company No 2 Lê Quốc Vũ said JERA’s proposal meets the demand of the Ô Môn 1 thermal power plant that will switch to the use of gas in 2021.
He added that the Power Transmission Company No 2 and JERA could supply gas to the plant in the third quarter of 2021 at the earliest.
Nam asked JERA to soon complete a detailed plan to submit to the city’s leaders and committed all possible support to the company during the process. — VNS
