Hanoi (VNA) – The Electricity of Vietnam (EVN) Group started work on 12 projects and put 22 others into operation in April.

Among those were the 500kV Lai Chau transformer station and projects to increase capacity of the 500kV Son La, 220kV Phu Tho and 220kV Dak Nong transformer stations.

According to the group’s report, EVN units exerted efforts to carry out the projects in line with the 2018 plan, particularly those providing power to serve the dry season, including the Vinh Tan 4 thermo-power plant.

In the time to come, to ensure progresses and targets of May and the second quarter of this year, EVN will grant permanent access card (PAC) to the first turbine of the Vinh Tan 4 thermo-power plant, and provide enough coal to serve commercial power generation for the plant’s turbines, and grant PACs to both turbines of the Thai Binh thermo-power plant.

In terms of the power grid, EVN continues to focus resources on urgent projects that serve power supply during the dry season and the whole year of 2018, while striving to complete several projects in May, including section 1C after the 220kV Pho Noi transformer station, a 220/500kV line connecting Long Bien and Bac Ninh, the 220kV Phong Dien transformer station, and a 220kV cable line connecting Quang Ngai and Quy Nhon.-VNA
