Vinh Tan 2 Thermo Power Plant up and running in Jun 2014.

Located in the south-central coastal province of Binh Thuan, Vinh Tan Power Center consists of four thermo-power plants with total output of 5,600 MW targeted as a key power supply center for the southern region in 2013-2020.

Work on the plant Vinh Tan 2 started in August 2010 with two turbines with total installed output of 1,244MW at a total cost of about VND23.48 trillion.

The first turbine of the Vinh Tan 2 is scheduled to be operational late next year while the second turbine will be put into service in June 2014.

EDPN Vietnam is providing technical services for the Vinh Tan 2 coal-fired power plant.

EDPN Vietnam will provide Installation, Testing and Commissioning supervision for Uninterruptible Power Supply systems.

The other factories of the power center are the Vinh Tan 1 and 3 under the format of build-operate-transfer (BOT) and the Vinh Tan 4. The Vinh Tan 1 scheme will be kicked off in 2014 and the construction of Vinh Tan 3 and 4 projects will be started in 2015.

All these plants apply traditional turbine technology with total coal consumption of about 8.8 million tons a year plus around 50,000 tons of fuel oil.
