Background

In December 2006, it was announced that Japan's Electric Power Development Company (J-Power) had chosen Phú Yên province as the site for a 1,200-MW, $1.2 billion coal-fired power plant, on a site "50km north of Tuy Hoa city." A provincial official said that J-Power would finalize plans and applications within two years.[1]

Later news about this proposal is not available, and it is unclear whether the project is still moving forward; it is also unclear whether this project is perhaps an earlier iteration of J-Power's Tan Thanh power station, in Bà Rịa–Vũng Tàu province.
