The Ba Ria-Vung Tau provincial People’s Committee has allowed Gravi Float AS Company of Norway to make a feasible study on building a 45 million liquefied natural gas (LNG) power plant in Con Dao.
Earlier, the province agreed with Norway LMG Marin Company on developing a LNG using ocean liner project to transport passengers and goods from Vung Tau to Con Dao and vice versa.
The liner will have a capacity of carrying around 350 passengers and 400 tonnes of cargo and its anchorage will be located at Cau Da port, PTSC port (Vung Tau) and Bem Dam port (Con Dao).
With the operation of the liner, the travel time from Vung Tau to Con Dao will reduce to five hours from current 13 hours.
