Deputy Prime Minister Hoang Trung Hai presented the Order of Independence-1 st class to the Power Engineering Consulting Joint Stock Company 2 (PECC2) at a ceremony held in Ho Chi Minh City on July 3.

Speaking at the event, the Deputy Prime Minister underscored that the company needs to renew their management mechanisms while enhancing their consulting capacity to meet the demands of customers and both domestic and foreign investors.

He asked the company to broaden their consulting fields while fostering studies on renewable energies to reduce the consumption of fossil fuels and take advantage of available resources.

In the past 30 years, PECC2’s development has been attached to a raft of national key projects – the North-South 500 kilovolt transmission line, Ha Tien-Phu Quoc 110 kilovolt submarine power cable and a number of power plants nationwide.

Last year, the company took charge of the design of the EPC contract for the Vinh Tan 4 thermal power plant, one of three power projects built at a cost of over 1 billion USD.

PECC2’s activities have been extended to countries in the vicinity such as Laos, Cambodia and China.-VNA
