A number of projects will be put into operation this month, including a 500kV transformer in Pho Noi, a 220kV transformer in Son Tay, and a 220kV cable network connecting Thai Binh – Kim Dong, and Xekaman 1 – Pleiku2.

EVN will also accelerate the implementation of other projects including upgrades to the 500kV transformer in Son La, and the 220kV transformers in My Xuan, Lao Cai, Hoa Khanh and Da Nang.
