The Power Generation Corporation No. 3 (EVNGENCO 3) on July 24 announced its decision to establish the Thai Binh Thermal Power Company, which will be in charge of managing and operating the Thai Binh Thermal Power Plant.
The company is based on the labour force of the management board of the Thai Binh Thermal Power Plant project, aiming to serve the safe, continuous and effective operation of the plant, while seeking optimal production costs and the improvement of business production efficiency.
The Thai Binh Thermal Power Plant, located in Thai Binh province’s Thai Thuy district, is one of the Government’s key projects, with Electricity of Vietnam (EVN) as its investor and EVNGENCO 3 as its management advisory unit, represented by the management board. Its projected cost is estimated at over VND26 trillion (US$1.14 billion) with an installed capacity of 600 megawatts (2x300MW) and an annual power output of approximately 3.6 billion kWh.
This is the first large-scale thermal power plant to be designed by a Vietnamese advisory unit. After over three years of construction, the project has now been basically completed.
Addressing the event, leaders of EVN and Thai Binh province asked officials and staff of the Thai Binh Thermal Power Company to uphold their responsibilities while effectively carrying out management and operation duties of the plant.
The company was requested to strictly comply with regulations on environmental protection ; to optimise production costs; and to manage and use capital and assets in an effective fashion as stipulated.
In addition, the company must prepare necessary conditions in the field of power trading in order to join the power market in line with the roadmap approved by authorised agencies, the leaders said, urging the company to continue training qualified human resources in service of the work and accelerate international cooperation in operating the plant.
