Japan to help build hydroelectric plant in Vietnam

Nippon Export and Investment Insurance (NEXI) of Japan will provide US$50 million as Overseas United Loan Insurance (OULI) to Vietnam to build the Bac River hydropower plant in the northern Ha Giang province.

A contract to this effect was signed on Feb. 21 between NEXI and the project's investor, the Bac River Hydro Power Joint Stock Company, wire services reported.

The loan will be provided through Sumitomo Mitsui Banking of Japan with a period of 14 years, including a five-year grace period.

The Bac River Hydro Power Joint Stock Company is the first private Vietnamese investor to have received such kind of loan, reports indicate.

The hydroelectric power plant, with a capacity of 42 MW, will be built in Tan Trinh commune, Quang Binh district.

In other news, a ground-breaking ceremony recently was completed for Vietnam's US$1.8 billion, 1,200-MW Lai Chau hydropower project.

The hydro project, located in Nam Hang Commune in Lai Chau province and owned by Electricity of Viet Nam (EVN), is expected to start generating in 2017.
