PetroVietnam Power Corp. commissioned the 462.8 MW Nhon Trach 1 Power Plant in Dong Nai Province on August 23 after wrapping up four months of trials.
The VND6.5 trillion power plant uses natural gas supplied from the Cuu Long and Nam Con Son basins.
The firm said it would speed up construction of the 750 MW Nhon Trach 2 plant.
It also plans to build other large plants like the Luang Prabang Hydroelectric Plant in Laos and Thai Binh 2 Thermal Power Plant besides a few 100-200MW hydroelectric plants in central provinces.
