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-II power station, and O Mon-III power station.[1]

In June 2018, as Vietnam Electricity (EVN) was seeking investors for the project, the Ministry of Finance thought the price of electricity from the plant would be "quite high" compared to coal plants. EVN also raised the output of the project from 750 MW to 1,050 MW.[3]

In May 2019, VietnamNet reported that EVN was having difficulty arranging capital for this project.[4]

In September 2019, the People's Committee of Can Tho City requested comments on the feasibility study report of O Mon IV Thermal Power Plant project from the State Capital Management Committee.[5]
