At the construction site, National Assembly Vice Chairman Phung Quoc Hien visited and encouraged the construction unit and a team of experts, engineers and workers who are constructing the site.
Welcome and appreciate Trung Nam Group’s investors for investing in the power transmission system. Deputy Chairman of the National Assembly, Phung Quoc Hien emphasized, if all the power is delivered to Vietnam Electricity, the implementation time may be prolonged and it is difficult to meet the schedule to load electricity from the national grid. . Mr. Phung Quoc Hien assessed the project was initially successful and noted that investors were more interested in solar thermal technology. Deputy Chairman of the National Assembly Phung Quoc Hien suggested the Ninh Thuan provincial leaders pay attention to removing difficulties and obstacles, creating favorable conditions for investors to soon complete the project on schedule.
Mr. Vu Dinh Tan, an investor of Trung Nam Group, said that the total construction volume to date has reached 76%, of which 500kV substation has reached 80%. 9 transformer stations in phase 1 will have 6 transformers installed, and these 6 transformers have been fully installed. The electricity is expected to be completed on 5-8. The 220kV power line has completed 100% of the pylon foundation, is installing electric poles, and is expected to complete the pulling on July 25. The 500kV transmission line connected to the 15.5 km Vinh Tan 500kV station was completed with 25/34 foundation concrete, reaching 73.5% and erected pillar reached 22/34, reaching 64.7%. At present, the 500 kV line has 5 poles that cannot be constructed yet. It is expected that the entire transmission line will be completed on 7-8.
On the local side, Chairman of Ninh Thuan Provincial People’s Committee, Luu Xuan Vinh, said that the project was entangled in 3.8 hectares of forest land. The 500 kV transmission line goes through no deforestation but needs a safety corridor to serve construction and operation after it is completed and put into use. Mr. Luu Xuan Vinh said that it is forest land but most of it is shrub. The line does not affect large trees. If the project is completed and put into operation, the province’s gross domestic product (GDP) will grow by 4.5%. If Trung Nam – Thuan Nam Solar Power Plant project of 450MW combined 220 / 500kV transformer station and 500kV and 220kV transmission line is completed, not only the capacity of power plants in Ninh Thuan will be 100% transmitted to the grid but also have extra for the next stage. Specifically, the transformer station invested by Trung Nam Group has a capacity of up to 6,000 MW. Meanwhile, by the end of this year, the total capacity of wind and solar power plants of Ninh Thuan province is only about 1,200 MW, so there is a lot of surplus. As planned, by the end of this year, it will release all excess capacity that could not be transmitted to the grid before. The release of the aforementioned capacity creates huge added value for the province. By the end of this year, Ninh Thuan province will complete the budget collection task, GDP growth will reach 11.2%.
