HCMC – The Cam Pha thermal power plant in the northern province of Quang Ninh has been forced to suspend its operations due to technical glitches, according to the Vietnam National Coal and Mineral Industries Group (VINACOMIN).
Moreover, the power station has not received coal from the Cua Ong Coal Preparation Company for several months, a representative of the company said.
VINACOMIN is racing against time to fix the problems and put the power plant back into operation.
The VND10-trillion plant is designed to turn out 3.68 billion KWh of electricity.
Since 2010, the plant has seen repeated operation disruptions due to technical failures.
In just nine months of 2018, some 25 technical failures were reported, two of which severely affected the plant’s power generation plan.
