EVN's President and CEO had an online meeting with leaders of Khanh Hoa province about Van Phong - Vinh Tan 500kV transmission line project

On September 9, from Hanoi, Mr. Tran Dinh Nhan – President and CEO of Vietnam Electricity (EVN) held an online meeting with Khanh Hoa Provincial People's Committee to discuss the site clearance work in the province for transmission projects to evacuate power from Van Phong 1 BOT Thermal Power Plant (HPT), with a focus on Van Phong - Vinh Tan 500kV transmission line project.

EVN dedicates the best resources to the project

These transmission projects are of national significance with the aim of promptly evacuating power from Van Phong 1 BOT Thermal Power Plant and renewable energy plants in the region, contributing to ensuring electricity supply for the South. Executing the tasks assigned by the Prime Minister, the Ministry of Industry and Trade, the projects have been urgently implemented by Vietnam Electricity and the National Power Transmission Corporation (EVNNPT).

Van Phong - Vinh Tan 500kV transmission line passing through Khanh Hoa province has a length of 88km, including 172 tower foundation positions. Up to now, Khanh Hoa province has managed to hand over the land of 52 tower positions, but none of the land in the right-of-way has been transferred to the project owner.

According to the contract signed with the Van Phong 1 BOT Thermal Power Plantinvestor, these transmission projects are scheduled to be completed no later than December 2022. If the progress is delayed, the Vietnamese side will have to indemnify the BOT investor around VND 23 billion a day. It is estimated that if the project is delayed by 6 months, the amount of indemnity the Vietnam side has to pay will be about VND 5,000 billion. If the delay is over 6 months, the BOT contract of Van Phong 1 Thermal Power Plant will be terminated early and the Government of Vietnam will have to take over the power plant.

With the urgent nature of this transmission project, Mr. Tran Dinh Nhan - EVN's President and CEO emphasized that EVN and EVNNPT have been concentrating all resources, as well as devoting all the best resources to ensure the completion of the project as being committed to the investor of Van Phong 1 BOT Thermal Power Plant. EVN has directed the General Director of EVNNPT, the Director of the Central Power Project Management Board (a unit under EVNNPT, responsible for project management) to work directly with the local authorities of Khanh Hoa province to promptly solve problems.

Khanh Hoa province is committed to making efforts with high political determination

Mr. Le Huu Hoang - Standing Vice Chairman of Khanh Hoa Provincial People's Committee requested departments and agencies in the province to carefully consider the proposals and recommendations of EVNNPT/CPMB in order to promptly advise the Provincial People's Committee to remove difficulties and obstacles. Local areas where the transmission line passes through shall mobilize people to hand over land of foundation positions and right-of-way as per the required schedule.

Mr. Le Huu Hoang also said that Khanh Hoa province is determined to complete transferring land of foundation positions by December 2021, and the right-of-way by June 2022.
