The Electricity of Vietnam (EVN) group generated a total of 132.8 billion kWh of electricity in the last 11 months, up by nearly 11 percent compared to the same period last year, ensuring sufficient supply for production and consumption needs.

In the reviewed period, the group’s total commercial electricity output hit 117,636 billion kWh, a year-on-year increase of 11.3 percent.

EVN also saved an estimated volume of 2.6 billion kWh, equivalent to 2.23 percent of the commercial power output.

The group said it strives to generate 405 million kWh per day in December.

To ensure sufficient power supply for the entire country this month as well as during the dry season of 2015, EVN will optimise hydropower and coal-fired power plants’ capacity by storing water in reservoirs.

This month, the group will begin the expansion of the Duyen Hai 3 power plant and the construction of infrastructure system of the Ninh Thuan nuclear power project, among other works.

It has also planned to accelerate progress on several projects, including Van Tri-Chem, Thuong Tin-Kim Dong and Song May-Uyen Hung 220kV transmission lines, and Kim Dong and Uyen Hung transformers, while completing procedures for the kick-off of Pleiku 2 500 kV and Hai Ha 220kV transformers.-VNA
