Binh Thuan Province has four active thermal power plants, with a total capacity of nearly 4,300MW, including Vinh Tan 1, Vinh Tan 2, Vinh Tan 4, and Vinh Tan 4 Expansion. Fly ash and slag discharged from the operation of these factories have already piled up as high as mountains. Binh Thuan Province has tried all measures to handle it, but they are going nowhere.

Thermal power plants dependant on imported coal

By the end of March, the national thermal power plants felt the shortage of more than 3,000 MW of power due to lack of coal supply, and many units had to either stop functioning or slow production. The current supply of coal is still erratic and now there is risk of a serious power shortage during the summer months.

Coal shortages require Vietnam to diversify supply sources

Vietnam is now in need of diversifying energy supply sources as it is facing a shortage of coal supply for electricity, cement, and fertiliser production due to impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic and the Russia - Ukraine conflict.
Thermal power slumps as renewable energy soars 180 percent

Thermal power slumps as renewable energy soars 180 percent

According to Vietnam Electricity (EVN), in the first quarter of this year, electricity mobilized from gas-fired thermal power plants and coal-fired thermal power plants must cut by 12-21 percent compared to last year because renewable energy (solar power) increased rapidly by up to 180 percent.

High expectations on renewable energy

Renewable energy (RE) projects from wind, sunlight, and biomass are expected to make up for the shortage of electricity supply and gradually replace thermal and hydroelectric sources of power. This is especially important in the context that thermal power plants, especially small hydroelectric power plants, are negatively affecting the environment.

Binh Thuan seeking way out for huge ash, coal slag from thermal power plants

Millions of tons of ash and coal slag have been created as by-products from thermal power plants in Binh Thuan province. For the last many years, the provincial authorities and relevant ministries have proposed many solutions to handle this source of waste, including using them in road constructions, but results are not as expected.

Russian enterprise wants to build power plant in Ninh Thuan

Technoprom Export, an affiliate of Russia’s Rostec Group, expressed its intention to invest in thermal power in the south central coastal province of NInh Thuan during a working session with local authorities here on Thursday.
Import of coal on increase

Import of coal on increase

According to the Ministry of Industry and Trade, the domestic demand for coal is increasing, especially at thermal power plants, whereas domestic coal production is fairly low so import of coal continues to strongly climb.

Expectations for first deepwater seaport in the Mekong Delta

Transport of goods in the Mekong Delta has been facing several difficulties as roads have not been invested synchronously, waterway has not brought into play its advantages and logistics system is poor, leading to increasing transport cost. Therefore, it is essential to have an effective and long-lasting solution to solve import and export demand of the region.
