The Electricity of Viet Nam (EVN)’s Power Generation Corporation 1 (EVNGENCO 1) produced nearly 12.4 billion kWh of electricity in the last five months, fulfilling 40.8 per cent of the target set for the year.

In May alone, the company’s output approximated 2.5 billion kWh, up 20 per cent over the same period last year.

The firm is set to produce nearly 2.9 billion kWh of electricity in June.

EVNGENCO 1 said in May that the corporation ensured the progress of investment projects such as the expanded Da Nhim hydropower plant, the 220kV Dai Ninh transformer station and the Duyen Hai thermo-electricity plant.

The total values of investment and disbursement for its construction projects in the first five months of this year reached VND8.68 trillion (US$381.9 million) and VND8.27 trillion (nearly $363.9 million), respectively.

Notably, in May, EVNGENCO 1 arranged enough capital for the Ban Ve, Song Tranh 2, Dong Nai 3 and Dong Nai 4 hydropower plants, the coal port of the Duyen Hai electricity centre, and other infrastructure facilities.

This month, the company has continued ensuring the progress of its projects, such as Dai Ninh station, the expanded Da Nhim hydropower plant, and Uong Bi thermal power plant.

It will approve a feasibility report of a project to upgrade the exhaust treatment system of the Uong Bi thermal power plant, while ensuring stable operation of turbines at the Duyen Hai 3 thermal power plant.

EVNGENCO 1 will also work with the EVN to verify balance reports for projects to develop infrastructure at the Duyen Hai electricity centre, the expanded Uong Bi thermal power plant and the Song Tranh 2 hydropower plant, as well as submit a balance report for phase 1 of the Duyen Hai electricity centre’s seaport project to the group. — VNS
