The construction of Tri An Hydropower Plant began in 1984 with the financial and construction assistance of the former Soviet Union.
The hydropower plant with a total capacity of 400 MW was out into operation on April 30, 1988. It was the second largest hydropower plant in the country, after the Hoa Binh hydro power plant in the northern province of Hoa Binh.
Tri An hydroelectric power plant now generates about 1.8-1.9 billion kWh to the national power grid. It not only ensures a stable supply of electricity but also helps control floods.
Russian Consul General in Ho Chi Minh City Aleksei Vladimirovich Popov said Russia supports the development of the mutual beneficial cooperation and relationship with Vietnam. In addition. the bilateral friendship between the two sides will be consolidated and enhanced for security, prosperity and benefits of the people of both countries, such as the cooperation in the construction of Tri An Hydropower Plant and infrastructure works in Dong Nai province.
