Nhơn Trạch Formosa power station is a 450-megawatt (MW) coal plant in Đồng Nai province, Vietnam.

In 2001, Hung Nghiep Formosa, a subsidiary of Taiwanese company Formosa Plastics Group, agreed with Electricity of Vietnam (EVN) to build a 150-MW coal-fired power plant in the Nhơn Trạch district of Đồng Nai province, near Ho Chi Minh City, as part of a much larger project that would also include a textile plant, artificial thread plants, and a plastic plant. The complex was completed in 2004, at a cost of $956 million.
As shown in archival photos on Google Earth, a second unit was completed in 2011 or 2012 and a third unit was completed in 2016
