HCMC – Deputy Prime Minister Tran Hong Ha has approved a proposal to import wind power from Laos submitted by the Truong Son wind power plant. This aligns with Vietnam’s Power Development Plan VIII and applicable regulations.

The Ministry of Industry and Trade had earlier submitted the proposal made by the Truong Son wind power plant to the Prime Minister for the import of electricity, detailing a connection plan to bring 250MW of power from Laos to Vietnam.

This plan is essential for bolstering electricity supply and enhancing security, thereby addressing potential power shortages in the country in the upcoming years, said the ministry.

The investor of Truong Son power plant project had proposed selling electricity to Vietnam Electricity Group (EVN) with a maximum import price set at 6.95 cents/kWh for commercial operations commencing before December 31, 2025.

EVN assessed that importing this electricity, particularly wind power, would strengthen the power supply stability for northern Vietnam.
