    Thai Binh 2 thermal power plant to start operations by May 10

    May 6, 2022 - Vietnam Investment Review (VIR)


      All employees and managers are making an effort to put the first turbine of the Thai Binh 2 thermal power plant into operation by May 10. According to information from the project's managing board, the construction is currently 92 per cent complete and the fire prevention system is almost completed.

      Preparing for operations at the plant

      About 1,200 staff are working at the building to accelerate the construction of the thermal power plant. The contractor - QingDao-Sotec - commits to mobilise human resources to ensure that the pilot operation goes smoothly.

      In order to serve the operation, the managing board has selected 64 engineers and 104 workers to join the on-job training course starting on May 16.

      The lack of foreign experts is a barrier to taking the plants into commercial operation at full capacity because of the need for specific expertise. At present, foreign experts in some countries are unavailable due to their nation's policies to limit the spread of the pandemic.

      Invested in by PetroVietnam, the Thai Binh 2 thermal power plant is an important component of the Thai Binh power centre. It was designed with two units with a total capacity of 1,200MW and is located about 20km to the east of Thai Binh city.

      PetroVietnam Construction JSC is the engineering, procurement, and construction contractor with a $1.2 billion contract.

      The construction was started in 2011 with operations expected to start in 2020, but the project has been delayed by recent global events.
