Quang Trach Thermal Power Project is an opportunity for Quang Binh province to promote its economic development

The Leaders of Quang Binh province had a meeting with leaders of Electricity of Viet Nam (EVN) on the implementation of Quang Trach Thermal Power Project.

Quang Binh provincial Party Committee Secretary Hoang Dang Quang affirmed that the investment in constructing Quang Trach Thermal Power Plants (belonging to Quang Trach Power Center) was an opportunity to promote the economic growth of a land with great difficulties like Quang Binh. Particularly, the Quang Binh Province Secretary hoped that the project implementation would put economic development and environmental protection in harmony.

EVN Members’ Council Chairman Duong Quang Thanh affirmed that Quang Trach Thermal Power Project was invested and constructed by EVN with modern technology, high efficiency and especially the project met the requirements for environmental protection.

Experiences have shown in some localities that if the operation of coal-fired thermal power plants complies with environment protection regulations, it will not negatively affect the socio-economy, including tourism development in the locality. Typically, in Ha Long City (Quang Ninh Province), the tourism industry is still growing at high speed, although Quang Ninh Thermal Power Center is only 15km from Ha Long City.

At the meeting, Assoc. Prof., Dr. Truong Duy Nghia - President of Viet Nam Thermal Science And Technology Association also presented the development of thermoelectric technology in the world. It can be seen that the coal-fired power is still a fundamental component in the power source structure of a developing country like Viet Nam, with a per capita power consumption of only half the average in the world.
