Chinese and Japanese contractors are expected to transfer the Hai Phong Thermal Power Plant 2 to its investor in the first and second quarters of this year.

After three years of construction, the two-turbine plant, with a designed capacity of 600 MW, was fully connected to national grid in February 17.

Located in Tam Hung commune, Thuy Nguyen district, the second plant was constructed by China’s Dongfang Electric Corporation and Japan’s Marubeni, with a total investment capital of 623 million USD.

Earlier, the Hai Phong Thermal Power Plant 1 was put into operation in 2011, with an annual electricity output of 3.6 billion kWh.

The two plants contribute to ensuring power security and stable electricity supplies for local factories’ production.-VNA
