678.4 million USD registered for solar power projects in Tay Ninh

Hanoi, August 7 (VNA) - Deputy Prime Minister Trinh Dinh Dung has approved the proposal to build a coal shipment port in the southern region.  The deputy PM assigned the Ministry of Industry and Trade in co-operation with the Ministry of Transport and relevant agencies to complete the port construction feasibility report. The port will carry coal to thermo-power plants in the Mekong Delta region.  As per the deputy PM’s instruction, the ministries will propose coal shipment plans to serve the urgent thermo-power plant demand in the region while building suitable investment plans to submit to PM Nguyen Xuan Phuc for approval.  According to the national electricity development master plan, the Mekong Delta region will have seven major thermo-power centres, including Long Phu, Song Hau, Duyen Hai, Bac Lieu, An Giang, Kien Luong and Tien Giang.  The total demand of imported coal for the thermo-power centres would be around 11 million tonnes by 2020 and 22 million tonnes by 2025. The coal demand would increase to 43 million tonnes by 2030.  Local coal resources have been concentrated in the northeastern province of Quang Ninh which mainly serve for thermo-power centres in the northern and central provinces.  Experts argue that Vietnam should have a coal trans-shipment port to reduce costs of transport to the centres in the region. However, the Government should consider coal import sources and vessel capacity. VNA/VNP  ... [read more]

VietNamNet Bridge – Associate Professor Nguyen Minh Due, chairman of the Viet Nam Energy Science Council speaks to Tuoi tre (Youth) newspaper about the need to develop renewable energy in Viet Nam. Associate Professor Nguyen Minh Due Following the revised national electricity development plan by 2020, electricity generated from coal-fired thermal power plants still accounts for nearly 50 per cent of the country’s total power, while electricity generated from wind and solar sources only makes up 1-2 per cent. Why is this? Under the plan, we are still focusing on coal-fired thermal power and the ratio of electricity generated from renewable sources remains at a low level. The high cost of renewable energy has been blamed for the situation. I think we are falling behind the global trend, where other countries are developing renewable energy. Some people have said the cost of running a coal-fired thermal power plant was low, thus, coal-fired thermal power still plays a major role in generating electricity for the country. Actually, if we take a detailed assessment, we find that the operation of a coal-fired thermal power plant often lasts about 30 years and the costs are not as low as we thought. It is because the source of domestic coal is diminishing in the future. Even thermal power plants have already planned to import coal to meet demand. The question is how we will import coal in the next 2-3 decades when the price of coal is predicted to increase due to limited supply.…... [read more]

The visit took place at a time when the Communist Party of Vietnam and the Lao People's Revolutionary Party have successfully organised their congresses, drawing up major socio-economic development orientations towards the goal of lifting their countries out of the present status of poverty and underdevelopment. This was also Mr Sayasone's first foreign visit in his capacity as Secretary General of the LPRP Central Committee and President of the Lao People's Democratic Republic. As close comrades and brothers of the Lao people, the Communist Party of Vietnam and its people congratulate Laos on the great, comprehensive and significant achievements recorded by the LPRP and its people during the past 20 years of implementing the Doi Moi (Renewal) process. Notably, Laos has maintained a rather high annual GDP growth rate of 6.2 percent in the past five years. Its income per capita reached more than US$440 last year. These achievements will motivate Laos to realise the goal of achieving an annual GDP growth rate of between 7.5-8 percent in the next five years. We are proud of the special relationship between Vietnam and Laos, which stemmed from the tradition of solidarity between the two nations and were fostered by the two Parties and President Ho Chi Minh and President Kayson Phomvihan and built up by generations of Lao and Vietnamese people. The exchange of high-level meetings by leaders of the two Parties and States and the annual meeting of the Vietnam-Laos Inter-governmental committee have helped further cement bilateral ties in the…...

In his speech, Deputy Minister of Science and Technology Le Dinh Tien said, “the Fukushima nuclear accident, once again, reminds us to develop and use nuclear power for peaceful purposes in a responsible way, in which ensuring the highest standards of nuclear safety is the first priority”. Vietnam’s energy policy for the post-Fukushima period relies on diverse energy sources, he said, noting that the country is facing a future of limited fossil fuel sources becoming exhausted, while energy consumption, especially electricity consumption, is increasing rapidly. “We understand that nuclear power is a clean energy source with no carbon dioxide emissions and it could be considered as a feasible option to meet the country’s demand for energy,” he said. Vietnam decided to continue its nuclear energy program, Tien said, adding that under the new plan for electricity development for 2011-2020 with an orientation to 2030, which was adopted by the Government last July, Vietnam’s first nuclear power plant will be in commercial operation by 2020 and the share of nuclear power in total power generation will reach 10.1 percent by the year 2030. To realize the program, Vietnam is focusing on investment for developing sound nuclear infrastructure, including legal and regulatory systems, human resource development, developing a technical support organization and enhancing international cooperation to ensure safety, security and nonproliferation, Tien said. He also stressed the importance of regional and international cooperation, including through FNCA projects on safety management systems for nuclear facilities, radiation safety and radioactive waste management, along with…...

Sekaman 1, one of key projects in the energy cooperation programme between the two governments, is the largest hydro-electric power plant invested by Vietnam in its neighbouring country. Addressing the ground breaking ceremony, Vietnamese Deputy Prime Minister Hoang Trung Hai said Sekaman 1 is one of the largest projects invested abroad by Vietnamese firms and described it as a symbol of cooperation between the two countries. Cooperation in electricity development is one of the key areas in bilateral economic ties between the two countries, he said. The BOT plant is designed to have a total capacity of 332 MW in the lower part of the Sekaman river, about 80km from the Vietnam-Laos border gate. Sekaman 1 is part of a project which includes the Sekaman Sanxay hydroelectric-power plant. The two are expected to go into operation after five years of construction, generating a total 1.22 billion kWh a year. Twenty percent of the electricity will be consumed in Laos while the remaining will be sold to Vietnam through a 500kV transmission line between the two countries. In addition to the project, the Song Da Corp, the project’s investor, has studied to implement six other hydroelectric-power projects with a total capacity of about 1,400MW which are expected to turn out a combined output of 5.4 billion kWh a year in southern Laos.
