Background

The power station comprises four power plants. The O Mon 1 plant, which has a capacity of 660 MW, is already operational. O Mon 2, 3, and 4 are proposed.

O Mon I currently relies on fuel oil but will be switched to domestic natural gas in 2021.[21] The February 2021 draft PDP8 revised that year to 2024.[22]

In May 2019, VietnamNet reported that EVN was having difficulty arranging capital for this project.[23]

The power station has three proposed gas-burning combined cycle units totaling 3,150 MW, and the fuel-oil units are scheduled to be switched to natural gas, which would ultimately bring the total gas-fired capacity to 3,810 MW.

O Mon 2

O Mon 2 is a proposed 1,050-megawatt (MW) gas-fired power plant. It will be built in the O Mon Power Center alongside O Mon 1 Thermal Power Plant and the proposed O Mon 3 and O Mon 4 power stations.[24][25]

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.[26][27]

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.[25][28]

In February 2021, IJGlobal reported that Vietracimex and Marubeni had received approval to proceed with the project following a decision by Vietnam's prime minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc in January 2021 backing the investment planning for the project.[29] The output of the project was confirmed as 1,050 MW and the companies are expecting the plant to commence operations in 2024-2025. The total project cost is about 30.56 trillion Vietnamese dong (US$1.33 billion). The Vietracimex - Marubeni consortium is planning to raise equity of approximately 6.11 trillion Vietnamese dong and finance the remaining 24.45 trillion Vietnamese dong with commercial loans.[30]

As of the February 2021 draft PDP8, O Mon 2 has established a feasibility study.[22]

O Mon 3

O Mon 3 is a proposed 1,050-megawatt (MW) gas-fired power plant in Can Tho Province, Vietnam.[24][31][32]

As of the February 2021 draft PDP8, O Mon 3 is in loan negotiations.[22]

O Mon 4

O Mon 4 is a proposed 1,050-megawatt (MW) gas-fired power plant.[24][31][32]

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.[33]

As of the February 2021 draft PDP8, O Mon 4 is under construction.[22]
