The Van Phong 500 kV transformer substation (and connections) is an urgent power project in the National Power Development Planning VII (Adjusted project) with the aim for releasing capacities of BOT Van Phong 1 thermal power and Renewable Energy power projects in Ninh Thuan, Khanh Hoa and Phu Yen provinces.
The project includes 2 transformers with a capacity of 900 MVA each, 6 feeders of 500 kV, 13 feeders of 220 kV and 26.1 km of 220 kV line from Van Phong 500kV transformer substation to Van Phong 220 kV transformer substation, that connected to a circuit of Van Phong – Tuy Hoa 220 kV line
The Central Power Management Board (CMPB) as the Project Management Board made a plan and asked relevant units to promote the human and material resources, rise high the spirit of self-discipline and responsibility and closely co-ordinate with the local authorities and units inside and outside the electricity sector for carrying out assigned tasks.
CPMB suggested Khanh Hoa Provincial People’s Committee (PPC) as soon as possible ratify Resolution on land acquisition in Ninh Hoa town for perfecting procedures related to compensation for site clearance. Khanh Hoa PPC should direct the provincial departments, agencies and Ninh Hoa Town People’s Committee to co-ordinate for carrying out the procedures, not rising the houses, objects in agreed power line route corridors and procedures for conversing forest land use purposes.
EVN asked Khanh Hoa PPC to create the best conditions, especially to hand construction site in time for the project to be completed in a timely schedule.
Mr. Nguyen Tuan Tung, EVNNPT Member Council Chairman informed that, in accordance with the PPA and BOT contract of Van Phong TPP 1, EVN is responsible to complete Van Phong 500 kV transformer substation, connections and Van Phong – Vinh Tan transmission line no later than December 26, 2022.
