Accordingly, the two packages "Design consultancy" and "Supervision consultancy" for Huoi Quang hydropower project are of PECC1, this is the first underground hydropower plant designed by Vietnam with a total capacity of 520MW (2 power units). The project is complicated due to 2 underground water tunnels in the mountain and the underground generator. PECC1 engineers had worked out and applied many software as well as established their own calculation programs to ensure accuracy in design, stability, sustainability and safety of the project in earthquake-resistant area (MCE earthquake with PGA = 245cm/s2).

In supervision consultancy, PECC1 has cooperated very well with the Investor in exchanging information and implementation schedule, presenting relevant issues to the competent authority, ensuring the schedule and quality of technical design implementation, which was highly appreciated by the Investor.

As for the package of "Design consultancy for Thai Binh Thermal Power Plant", this is one of the key projects of the Government invested by Vietnam Electricity (EVN), with the total investment cost of over VND 26,000 billion, the total installed capacity of 600 MW (2 x 300MW) and the electricity output of about 3.6 billion kWh per year.

The design of the project not only satisfies economic and technical requirements, but also ensures environmental friendliness. In particular, the most practical and visible benefit is that through resettlement activities in association with the planning for development of aquaculture areas, the project has contributed to raising incomes and living standards for residents in the vicinity of Thai Binh Thermal Power Plant. So far, Thai Binh Thermal Power Plant is one of the few thermal power projects in Vietnam being completed ahead of schedule.
