Hanoi (VNA) – The Vietnam Electricity (EVN) has conducted a series of project to connect island districts and communes with the national power grid with total investment of over 7.5 trillion VND (322.5 million USD).

According to the EVN, the coverage of middle and low-voltage power line in island districts has increased up to 400 percent, meeting the demand of local residents who enjoy electricity with the same price as those in the mainland.

The firm revealed that since 1992, it has directly supplied electricity to 11 out of 12 island districts, and 81 out of 85 communes, serving 151,154 customers.

Since August 1, 2017, it has managed, performed maintenance and repair, and operated the power networks in Truong Sa archipelago and the DK1 Platform.

Recently, the EVN has received a certificate of merit from the Vietnam People’s Navy for outstanding performance in popularising policies on seas and islands./.
