VGP – By the year of 2030, Việt Nam will have built eight nuclear power plants to meet its current skyrocketing electricity demand.

This is part of PM Nguyễn Tấn Dũng’s newly-inked decision outlining key directions for the development of nuclear power until 2030.

Việt Nam is following a consistent policy to develop nuclear power for peaceful purposes and in favor of safety for people and environment.

Three evolution phases

The development of nuclear power is divided into three phases.

The first phase (by 2015) aims at completing the approval of investment project, selecting location and contractors, and training the human resource for the construction of the first nuclear power plant.

Mechanisms and policies on forming and boosting the engagement of domestic players in equipment and material provision, construction, installation, project management, supervision and quality control plant will also be issued.

In the next five year stage, the first turbine of the Ninh Thuận Nuclear Power Plant 1 will be finished and put into operation by 2020. The second plant will also be built during this period.

For the last phase until 2030, next nuclear power plants will continue to be built, making nuclear power the country’s main energy.

During this period, Việt Nam targets to master the technologies of designing nuclear power plants and to raise domestic enterprises’ share up to 30%-40% in each nuclear power project.
