(VOV) - The Electricity of Vietnam (EVN) started construction of the VND33 trillion Mong Duong 1 Thermal Power Plant in the northern province of Quang Ninh on October 22.

The coal-fired plant, part of the national electricity development plan for the 2006-2015 period, has a design capacity of 1,000 MW. Once put into operation in 2015, it is expected to produce as much as 6.5 billion kWh annually to meet the socio-economic development demands of the northern region.

The plant will utilize state-of-the-art technologies that comply with Vietnamese and international requirements for environment protection.

Speaking at the ceremony, Deputy Prime Minister Hoang Trung Hai urged the investor and contractors to ensure the progress of the projects. He also asked local authorities to assist families that have to relocate and resettle into new residential areas.

The Mong Duong 1 thermal power plant is invested by EVN and its contractor is the Hyundai Engineering and Construction Co. Ltd, a leading construction company from the Republic of Korea.
