The Hanoi Electricity Corporation has set up a detailed plan to ensure sufficient power supply during this summer, said vice general director of the company Nguyen Anh Dung.

The company has channeled efforts to accelerate the operation of key power projects like 110 kV power lines between Long Bien and Dong Anh-Gia Lam-Sai Dong and 100 kV power lines connecting Quoc Oai and Chem-Phuc Tho stations.

Construction of tens of medium- and low-voltage power stations has been completed so far. Meanwhile, relevant units are rushing off their feet to set up plans for other projects to bury the medium-voltage and low-voltage electrical cables underground on 45 streets.

To date, repairs of electrical equipment have been made in line with the set plan.

However, Dung also pointed out that land clearance and compensation have hampered many power construction projects from being completed in accordance with the set timeline.

Despite the electricity sector’s efforts, high power consumption during the summer will lead to overloading on the grid. Thus, local residents should join hands to save the power by turning off unnecessary electrical devices during peak hour and using air-conditioner from 26 degree Celsius, he added.
