Hanoi (VNA) – The Southern Power Corporation (EVNSPC) is finalising three projects to supply power to two island communes, Lai Son and Hon Nghe, as well as in-need localities which are home to Khmer people in the southern province of Kien Giang within this year.

The project to provide power for 1,956 households in Lai Son, launched on September 4 last year at a cost of 467 billion VND (20.9 million USD), is scheduled to complete in August.

It comprises 43km of 110kV transmission line, including 24km crossing the sea, an 110kV transformer station and 13 distributing stations with a total capacity of 2,080kVA.

Meanwhile, the other project to bring power to Hon Nghe island commune was commenced in October 10, 2015 with an investment of 140 billion VND (6.27 million USD).

The project, which includes 16.3km cross-sea line and eight transformer stations with a total capacity of 975kVA, is expected to finish in the third quarter of this year.

In 2016, the EVNSPC will also conclude the second phase of a project to supply power to locals who have not accessed electricity, mostly Khmer people, in Kien Giang.

As many as 85 billion VND (3.81 million USD) will be invested in installing 89km middle voltage and 216km low voltage power transmission lines to bring power to 6,131 households.-VNA
