The Electricity of Vietnam (EVN) is taking all possible measures to ensure a stable power supply for the south with the dry season in the region climbing to its peak.

EVN Southern Power Company (SPC) Deputy General Director Pham Ngoc Le pointed out that only two turbines of the Vinh Tan No. 2 thermal power plant will become operational in the south this year, with a total capacity of 1,200 MW.

Meanwhile, power grids in regional provinces such as Binh Duong, Binh Thuan, Ba Ria-Vung Tau, Dong Nai and Long An are overloaded while the construction of some 220kV substations and lines is lagging behind schedule.

The EVN said to satisfy the south’s power demand in 2014, particularly during the dry season peak in April and May, the group will quicken work on such major thermal power plants as Duyen Hai 1, Duyen Hai 3, Vinh Tan 2 and Vinh Tan 4.

It has also assigned the Southern Grid Company to overhaul the 110kV grid’s operation, and told other subsidiaries to check electricity demand and prioritise anti-drought and disease prevention activities along with political and social events.

They have also been asked to make full use of small-scaled hydropower plants in southern Binh Phuoc, Ba Ria-Vung Tau, Soc Trang and Tay Ninh provinces and the neighbouring central and Central Highlands localities of Ninh Thuan and Lam Dong.

Additionally, Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung has ordered the power sector to swiftly complete north-south transmission lines. Those linking Pleiku, My Phuoc and Cau Bong and Vinh Tan, Song May and Tan Dinh are of particular importance to tackle the power problem.-VNA
