From now to 2010, Việt Nam will supply Cambodia between 80-200 MW through a 220kV line linking the Thốt Nốt Station in the Mekong Delta to Cambodia’s Phnom Penh.

In the second phase from 2015-2016, the grid will be spliced right in Hồ Chí Minh City once the construction of the Lower Sesan 1 and Lower Serepok 2 hydro-electricity power plants in Cambodia is completed.

EVN plans to import up to 1,600 MW from Laos’s Sekaman 1, Sekong 4 and 5, and Nam Kong hydro-electricity power plants through two 500kV lines connecting Laos’s Nam Theun and Ban Sok to central Hà Tĩnh Province and Pleiku City of central highlands Gia Lai Province, respectively.

The group also plans to connect the national power grid to that in Thailand in order to sell power in March and April and buy power in periods from June to August and October to December.

Since October 2004, Việt Nam has bought close to 200 MW through a 110kV line and 250-300 MW through a 220 kV line running from China. The two neighboring countries plan for connection through a 500kV line.
