Vietnam plans to generate and import over 133.4 billion kWh of electricity in 2013, a year-on-year increase of 11 percent, to meet national demand.

The plan, recently approved by the Ministry of Industry and Trade, aims to ensure a stable supply of power in 2013.

Vietnam will import 3.7 billion kWh of electricity from China, 1 billion kWh more than last year.

To realise the plan, the ministry asked State-owned Electricity of Vietnam (EVN) to coordinate with power generators to manage the operation of oil-burning thermal electricity plants and gas turbine power plants.

EVN was urged to enhance the usable capacity of the plants it manages and maximise the use of all power sources to guarantee supply.

The National Power Transmission Corporation has been tasked to channel all sources of energy so that key power projects in the south can be implemented and upgraded.-VNA
