Background

The power plant will be built in the O Mon Power Center alongside O Mon 1 Thermal Power Plant, which has a capacity of 660 MW, O Mon-III power station, and O Mon-IV power station.[1]

Two investors sent proposals to the Ministry of Industry and Trade -- EVNGENCO2 (Vietnam Electricity Corporation) and Vietracimex (Marubeni Corporation) to build the power plant. In May 2019, Ministry of Industry and Trade recommended Vietracimex Joint Venture - Marubeni Group, which had begun operating many projects successfully in 2019, to the Prime Minister.[3][4]

In mid-2019, the Prime Minister and Ministry of Trade discussed increasing the output of the plant from 750 MW to 1,050 MW and having it begin operations in 2025.[2][5]
