They include the Trung Son Hydropower Plant, an extension to the Thac Mo Hydropower Plant, as well as the Nghi Son 1, Mong Duong 1, Vinh Tan 2 and Duyen Hai 1 Thermal Power Plant.

EVN will also continue the trial run of the Thai Binh Thermal Power Plant’s first turbine.

In September, the National Power Transmission Corporation (NPT), a member of EVN, was scheduled to complete a number of transmission projects in Hanoi, Bac Ninh, Hoa Binh, Yen Bai and Thai Binh, among others.

In August, EVN connected the Thai Binh Thermal Power Plant’s second turbine to the national power grid, began construction of nine transmission projects and completed 18 other transmission projects.

Newly connected power plants in August have added another 1,535 megawatts to the national capacity.

August also saw the operations of the power system in Quang Tri province’s island district of Con Co transferred to EVN.
