The state-run Electricity of Vietnam has said its new hydropower and thermal plants will generate 2,198 MW this year.

They include the Son La Hydroelectric Plant, the second turbine group at the Song Tranh 2 and Dong Nai 3 hydroelectric plants, the An Khe-Kanak Hydroelectric Plant, Dong Nai 4 Hydroelectric Plant, and Uong Bi 2 Thermal Plant.
 
EVN will begin construction of five other plants with a total capacity of 3,830 MW this year.

In other plans, the group will begin supplying electricity to remote ethnic minority hamlets in Central Highlands provinces, ethnic Khmer communities in the southern provinces of Bac Lieu, Soc Trang, and Tra Vinh, and poor households in the two northern provinces of Dien Bien and Lai Chau.

The Phu Quoc Island off the southern coast will soon be linked to the national grid by a 110-KV undersea cable system.

EVN will speed up other transmission projects in the Central Highlands and southern regions to ensure stable power supply after 2012.

This year it plans to invest more than VND65 billion (US$3 billion) in its projects, an increase of 12.4 percent over last year.

EVN is the sole distributor of power in Vietnam while there are several private producers.
