Many projects ensured the progress schedules and quality and brought the great economic benefits for the socio-economic development of the country, including important contributions of power projects with a design output of about 30.6 billion kWh per year in Binh Thuan province.

The Vinh Tan 4 TPP has a high localization rate as 26% and is considered one of the top quality thermal power plants in Vietnam, meeting very well the requirements on environmental protection” – Deputy Prime Minister emphasized.
