Background

In November 2014, Hong Kong-based Texhong Group, a textiles company, announced plans to build the Texhong Vietnam Industrial Zone in Quảng Điền commune.[1][2][3]

In February 2017, the prime minister of Vietnam gave the go-ahead to plans by Texhong Hai Ha Industrial Park Co., Texhong's subsidiary, to build a four-unit, 2,100-MW coal-fired power plant at the Texhong Vietnam Industrial Zone.[4] Construction of industrial park began in early 2019.[5] In March 2019 the Quang Ninh Department of Natural Resources and Environment confirmed that the Texhong Group had not yet submitted an environmental impact statement for the park.[6] In April 2019 the Quang Ninh People's Committee ordered the Texhong Group to halt construction as not all legal procedures for building the park had been completed. In May 2019 construction was reportedly continuing despite the stop order.[6] Construction was halted in June 2019.[5]

In September 2019 it was reported that the industrial park's sponsors had run out of money to develop the project, and Vietnam Coal and Mineral Industry Group (TKV) announced that it would attempt to auction its stake in the project.[7]

The revised Power Development Plant VII (PDP7) lists four phases of the Hải Hà CHP power station, coming online in 2019 (Phase 1, 150 MW), 2022 (Phase 2, 750 MW), 2025 (Phase 3, 600 MW), and 2028 (Phase 4, 600 MW).[8]

The 2016 PDP7 lists the units of the plant as follows:

  • Phase I: Units 1, 2, and 3 - 3 x 50 MW (150 MW total) - 2019
  • Phase II: Units 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 - 5 x 150 MW (750 MW total) - 2022
  • Phase III: Units 9 and 10 - 2 x 300 MW (600 MW total) - 2025
  • Phase IV: Units 11 and 12 - 2 x 300 MW (600 MW total) - 2028


Construction had not begun as of May 2020 meaning that all of these completion dates are delayed by at least four years from the March 2016 PDP VII. In November 2020 it was reported that all phases of the plant would likely be delayed until after 2030 under Vietnam's upcoming Power Development Plan VIII.[9]
