First unit of Vietnam's 210-MW A Vuong begins operation

The first 105-MW unit of the 210-MW A Vuong hydroelectric project went on line in October on the A Vuong River in Vietnam's Quang Nam Province.

Vietnam News Agency reported the unit officially began transmitting electricity into the national grid 70 days ahead of schedule. It said the second unit was expected to begin operating in November.

The generating equipment was built and installed by Power Machines of Russia and Sumitomo of Japan under a US$40 million contract, signed with project owner Electricity of Vietnam (EVN) in 2005. Other contractors included Melco of Japan and MIE of Vietnam.

Quang Nam announced in 2006 that A Vuong was among five hydroelectric projects in which it planned to invest 2 trillion dong (US$125 million) through 2010. (HNN 11/16/06) EVN previously secured US$372 million in credits for A Vuong and three other projects from Vietnam's Vietcombank, BIDV, Agribank, and Incombank.
