The investment aims to raise the national power network’s peak power and maximise utilisation of water discharged from the plant in the flood season for generating power.
 
It will also help improve frequency modulation capability and stablise the frequency of the national electricity system and reduce the working intensity of available turbines of the plant, thus prolonging the life of equipment and saving maintenance and repair costs. 
 
With total investment of nearly 8.6 trillion VND, the expanded project will include two turbines with total capacity of 480MW. 
 
Once completed, the plant’s average power is expected to reach 479 million kWh per year, while its electricity mobilisation during peak hours will increase to 264.4 million kWh per year. 
 
The project is scheduled to be put into operation in 2022 or 2023.
 
The Hoa Binh hydro power plant, located in the northern province of Hoa Binh, is the second largest hydropower plant in Vietnam, after the Son La hydro power plant, with an annual electricity output of over 10 billion kWh. 
 
It was listed as an important project with relation to national security under a Government decision signed on January 20, 2017.
