The Vietnam Electricity (EVN) has awarded Marubeni Corporation a contract to build the 600 MW Nghi Son 1 coal fired thermal power plant, representing the Japanese trading company’s largest independent power deal in Vietnam.

The scope of the contract, which is worth approximately 90bn yen ($991m), includes engineering, procurement, delivery of the equipment and the construction and installation work, on a full turnkey basis.

According to Marubeni, it will procure steam turbines and generators from Fuji Electric Systems and boilers from Foster Wheeler. Nghi Son 1 is expected to be commissioned in March 2014.

The project is located in the Nghi Son district, and will be EVN’s first large-sized thermal power plant in Central Area of Vietnam.

This project is seen as one of the most important projects in Vietnam’s Master Plan, the government’s long-term power development plan, for the purpose of responding to increasing power demands in the country, where significant economic growth is being achieved.

Building on the Nghi Son 1 award, Marubeni is hoping to secure the Nghi Son 2 project, a planned adjacent coal fired power plant.
