Background

Na Dương-1

Na Dương-1, a two-unit, 100-MW coal-fired power plant owned by Vinacomin, began construction in April 2002, and was completed in 2005. The mine-to-mouth plant uses coal from the nearby Na Dương coal mine.[1]

Na Dương-2

In December 2009, Vinacomin signed a memorandum of understanding with Japan's Marubeni Corporation for the construction of a second 100-MW phase at Na Dương.[2]

As of early 2013, Vinacomin stated that Na Dương-2 is still part of their business plan, and again in January 2014. It is unclear whether this unit is still in development or under construction.[3][4]

In October 2014, managers of the coal plant stated that they planned to start construction on the second phase by the end of 2015.[5]

Construction was approved in October 2015.[6] The unit would cost $200 million.[7]

As of May 2017, Vinacomin had prepared the site for construction, and was reviewing applications for an engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract.[8]

In September 2018 it was reported that development of the project had been further delayed while Vinacomin negotiated with Electricity of Vietnam (EVN) over electricity prices.[9]
