Vietnam Goes First Class

Global effort yields impressive results...

Operation of Vietnam's largest gas-fuelled power plant has begun.

The 720 MW plant was installed with modern technologies and equipment, including two gas turbines and two heat recovery systems.

The project was built under the BOT (build-operate-transfer) form with funds worth US$450 million coming from BP Holdings PV of the British Petroleum, SempCorp Utilities of Singapore, Japan's Kyushu Electric Power Co., and the Nisshio Iwai Corp.

Once at full capacity, the plant will contribute 10 per cent of Vietnam's total electricity output.
