HCMC – Vietnam Electricity Group (EVN) and the National Power Transmission Corporation (EVNNPT) have commenced work on multiple projects to improve electricity transmission in the northern and central regions of the country.

The projects include key sections like the 500 kV Quang Trach–Quynh Luu and Quynh Luu–Thanh Hoa transmission lines. The 500 kV Thanh Hoa substation and Nam Dinh-Pho Noi transmission line are integral parts of this extensive undertaking.

These projects are part of the larger 500-kV transmission line circuit 3 project, involving the construction of 500 kV transmission lines spanning over 500 kilometers across nine provinces, including Quang Binh, Ha Tinh, Nghe An, Thanh Hoa, Ninh Binh, Nam Dinh, Thai Binh, Hai Duong and Hung Yen.

The total investment cost is VND22 trillion, with the primary objective of strengthening the power grid and enhancing electricity transmission from the North-Central region to the northern provinces.

These projects focus on increasing transmission capabilities from the north-central region to the northern provinces, playing a pivotal role in mitigating potential overload risks on existing 500 kV lines.

While this initiative is crucial for bolstering power transmission infrastructure, it has faced hurdles, particularly in land clearance in densely populated areas and challenging terrains in Ha Tinh, Nghe An, and Thanh Hoa provinces.

In response to these challenges, EVN has proposed delegating authority to provincial People’s Committees to expedite approvals for forest impact assessments and land clearance to ensure the timely completion of the project.
