HCMC – Vietnam Electricity Group (EVN) is under preparation to start work on a seaport for Duyen Hai Thermo-power Center in Tra Vinh Province late this year

EVN leaders told Deputy Prime Minister Hoang Trung Hai, who paid a working trip to Duyen Hai Thermo-power Center over the weekend, that the seaport can handle 30,000-DWT ships and will receive 12 million tons of coal and oil serving the operation of power plants in the center.

EVN in June this year signed an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract worth some US$180 million for developing this seaport.

The project is scheduled for completion and operation in the third quarter of 2014. Besides, the first power plant of the thermo-power center will start to supply power for the national grid in late 2015.

Duyen Hai Thermo-power Center invested by EVN and Malaysia-based Janakuasa Sdn Bhd consists of four coal-fired thermal power plants having a total designed capacity of 4,200 MW. The center has a total investment cost of around US$8 billion.
