Numerous high-capacity electricity stations have recently been installed in many southern islands as part of efforts by the Southern Power Corporation to ensure sufficient electricity supply for the islands in the region.
A 110kV transmission station with a capacity of 80MVA, almost four times the current demand, has been installed on Phu Quoc Island in the southern province of Kien Giang in anticipation of surging local electricity demand as the tourism industry is booming in the island.
The Power Company in Kien Giang has also completed a 22kV grid providing electricity for Kien Hai Island. Power consumption on the island is only 0.5 MVA, easily met by the 2-MVA installed stations.
In a bid to guarantee electricity supply in Phu Quy Island, Binh Thuan province’s Power Company repaired two diesel engines at the Phu Quy diesel-power plant together with the medium-voltage grid and Long Hai stations 2 and 3. Additionally, two power generator units have just become operational to contribute to the regional supply.
Furthermore, the Electricity of Vietnam (EVN) and Southern Power Corporation agreed to implement an 11.5 million USD project to enhance diesel power and upgrade the power grid system in Phu Quy Island to meet demand and support socio-economic development by 2020.
Meanwhile, additional power generators were added to the system on Con Dao Island to augment its electrical capacity. Ba Ria-Vung Tau Power Company will devise plans to maximize the operation of electrical generators to leverage their capacity.-VNA
