HCMC – Vietnam will start building a new 500 kV power transmission line in 2025 to provide additional power for the northern region, said the Central Vietnam Power Projects Management Board.

This project will facilitate the transmission of electricity from the southern and central regions to the north, ensuring stable power supply for the northern region.

During a recent meeting, the Central Vietnam Power Projects Management Board presented a plan to connect thermal power plants and renewable energy facilities in the north-central region to the national grid.

The 500 kV power transmission project is important as it will relieve the load on the two existing 500 kV lines and ensuring power security for northern Vietnam in the coming years.

Covering a length of nearly 317 kilometers, the power lines will pass through several provinces in the central region, including Quang Binh, Nghe An and Thanh Hoa.

The project is scheduled to be completed within 50 months from the date of the feasibility study being done, assuming no complications arise during site clearance and compensation.

The 500 kV Quang Trach-Quynh Luu-Thanh Hoa transmission line project has received approval from the Prime Minister to be included in the National Power Development Plan for the 2021-2030 period, with a vision to 2045 (the Power Development Plan VIII), according to the Government news site at baochinhphu.vn.
