The 1,000-MW Power Plant Mông Dương 2 located in Quảng Ninh Province was approved by the PM as a joint-venture between the American Energy Services Incorporation (AES) and the Vietnam Coal and Mineral Group under a Building-Operation-Transfer (BOT) investment project.

The project will be realized in 2007, with a total investment of US$ 1.2 billion. The concerned contracts and documents, including BOT contract, Purchased Power Adjustment (PPA), coal supply arrangement (CSA), Government Guarantees and Undertakings (GGU) Agreement, are now under negotiation and will be submitted to the Government for approval.
