Deputy General Director of the Electricity of Vietnam (EVN) Duong Quang Thanh said his company would ensure sufficient power supply for the entire country during the dry season as well as the entire year of 2015.

Thanh revealed that EVN has put the second turbine of Bung River Hydropower Plant into operation, adding 1,170MW to the national power grid, and has completed 33 power line constructions to the South to ensure power supply for the region.

EVN has asked the MoIT to assign other power suppliers to mobilise electricity, he added.

MoIT figures showed that the country's total power production in the first 10 months of the year increased by 12 percent to 115.67 billion kWh.

During that period, Vietnam imported from China 1.7 billion kWh of electricity, a 41-percent year-on-year reduction.

For the entire 2014, the country aims to import from China 2.4 billion kWh of electricity, a 26-percent year-on-year reduction.-VNA
