The Nhon Trach 2 power plant in the southern province of Dong Nai had by November 5 supplied 15 billion kWh to the national grid after three years of operation.

Since early this year, it has generated 3.9 billion kWh of electricity, fulfilling 98 percent of its yearly plan.

With the current capacity, the plant will maintain the provision of 5-6 percent of electricity to the national grid annually.

The Nhon Trach 2 thermal power plant began commercial operation in late 2011.

As a national key project in the provincial PetroVietnam Nhon Trach Power Centre, the power plant has a total capacity of 750 MW and is fueled by natural gas which has been registered under the United Nations’ Clean Development Mechanism as main fuel.

With three turbines, it is designed to churn out an average of 4.2 billion kWh each year.

It also plays an important role in supplying electricity to the southern key economic region.-VNA
