HCMC – PetroVietnam Power Corporation (PV Power) posted a 20% year-on-year increase in revenue in October, earning more than VND2.2 trillion.
The company attributed this growth to key power plants, with Ca Mau 1&2 contributing VND973 billion, Vung Ang 1 generating VND735.4 billion, and Nhon Trach 1&2 collectively contributing VND355.2 billion dong.
PV Power said the transition to the dry season in the north and south and incessant rain in the central region had led to increased water levels in hydroelectric reservoirs, influencing the overall electricity market.
On the operational front, the firm highlighted the proactive management of gas supply at the Ca Mau 1&2 plants and the optimization of output at the Vung Ang 1 plant in response to reduced market prices.
From January to October, PV Power made more than VND24.3 trillion in revenue, up 7.6% over the same period last year. The Ca Mau 1&2 plants contributed the highest share at nearly VND9 trillion, followed by Vung Ang 1 with VND6.9 trillion, and Nhon Trach 1&2 with a combined VND7.3 trillion.
