VGP - The second turbine of the Vinh Tan 4 thermal power plant began generating electricity for the national grid on October 3, nearly three months after the operation of the first one.

The Vinh Tan thermal power plant project, invested by the Electricity of Viet Nam (EVN) group is one of the five thermal power plants of the Vinh Tan Power Station in the southern province of Binh Thuan.

The plant has two turbines with a combined capacity of 1,200 MW and was built at a cost of VND36 trillion (US$1.58 billion).

In full operation, it is expected to generate about 7.2 billion kWh each year. It is the first large-scale coal-fueled thermal power plant in Viet Nam using the supercritical steam generator.

The plant is also hoped to contribute to socio-economic development in the South Central Region and raise the stability and economic operation of the national grid.
