CommencementCeremony of Quang Trach Thermal Power Plant 1
Quang TrachThermal Power Plant 1 Project is the subsidiary of Quang Trach Power Center,which was built in Quang Dong commune, Quang Trach district, Quang Binhprovince with total investment of more than 33,000 billion VND.
The project hasthe capacity of 2×600 MW; a thermal power project using coal with big capacityand it was the first time for application of the implementation model of EPC bytransferring separate sections, advice offer, equipment supply, andconstruction to domestic firms. Thereby internal resources shall be furtherstrengthened, improve the competitiveness of domestic contractors at the behestof the Prime Minister.
The pulverizedcoal fired boiler technology is used for this project, high performance andensure the emission conditions complying with international and Vietnamesestandards.
Quang TrachThermal Power Plant is a major and urgent project in the planning of nationalelectricity development for 2006-2015, amd that of 2025 was also submitted toPrime Minister for approval.
It is owned byVietnam National Oil and Gas Group (VPN), Oil and Petrovietnam Engineering(PVE) and Petrovietnam Company (PVC) are general contractors.

The covenant wassigned by the emulation units
On this project,Deputy Prime Minister suggested that the Ministry of Industry and Trade shouldclosely direct the contractor to focus forces, supplies, equipment, and ensurethe environmental factors of the project, ensuring that the generators put intooperation as proposed schedule
The Quang Trachthermal power project put into operation as right schedule will be the basisfor the project – Quang Trach 2 continues to be deployed in the next stage.
At the ceremony,the representative of the employer has launched the period of emulation, focuson all machinery, equipment, manpower and material resources, Generator No.1will put into operation and connect with national power grid in June, 2015; thegenerator No. 2 will put into operation in December, 2015.
As expected, whencompleted and 02 generators put into operation, Quang Trach Thermal Power Plantwill provide a national grid about 8.4 billion kWh / year, contributing toensure national energy security to meet the development needs of sub-load ofthe central region and reduce power losses due to transmitting long-distance.
