A ground-breaking ceremony has been held to kiick off the construction of the 1,320-megawatt Quang Tri 1 thermal power plant.

The project, located in the central province of Quang Tri, is undertaken by Thailand’s EGAT International Company Limited under a build-operate-transfer contract.

The coal-fired plant using supercritical technology will have two turbines, with a capacity of 660 megawatts each.

It is expected to generate 7,200 billion kWh of electricity and pre-tax revenue of VND12.5 trillion (over $538 million) per year.

With a total investment of VND55.1 trillion ($2.4 billion), the Quang Tri 1 power plant is the largest project ever invested in Quang Tri Province.

On the occasion, the Quang Tri Economic Zone Management inaugurated a 23.5-kilometre road connecting the Quang Tri Southeastern Industrial Park with Cua Viet Port, which was built at a cost of VND700 billion. — VNS
