NDO – Construction began on a series of important power transmission projects worth a total investment of VND1.3 trillion in various provinces, on December 25.

They were the Binh Long (Binh Phuoc province) – Tay Ninh 220kV transmission line, the Nha Trang (Khanh Hoa province) – Thap Cham (Ninh Thuan) 220kV transmission line and Quang Chau 220 kV transformer substation in Bac Giang province.

The Binh Long – Tay Ninh 220kV line, with investment of nearly VND644 billion, is expected to prevent the overload of the Binh Long – My Phuoc 220kV and Cu Chi – Trang Bang 220kV transmission lines.

The Nha Trang – Thap Cham 220kV line has a total investment of more than VND407 billion. Once completed, the project will contribute to meeting the increasing demand of high load in Khanh Hoa province.

The line will also create a 220kV circuit linking the central coastal localities, as well as increase the reliability of power supply in the region.

Meanwhile, the 220kV Quang Chau substation is located in Trung Dong village, Van Trung commune, Viet Yen district, Bac Giang province. The over VND250 billion project is expected to meet the high demand of additional charge, ensure power supply and reduce power losses on the grid in both Bac Giang and Bac Ninh provinces.

All projects were invested in by the National Power Transmission Corporation, under Vietnam Electricity (EVNNPT), using ODA loans and the corporation’s own capital.

On behalf of EVNNPT, the Management Board of Central Power Projects (AMT) is managing the projects which are expected to be completed in 2019.
