Launched in 2011, Thai Binh 2 Thermal Power Plant, located in Thai Thuy district, Thai Binh province, has the largest capacity (1,200 MW) in the Northern Delta region with a total investment of 41,799 billion VND. one of the key projects of the power industry at Thai Binh Power Center.
However, during the implementation process, the project encountered many difficulties and obstacles, occurred many violations that had to be handled, along with the long time the project was delayed and stalled (from 2018 to 2018. 2021).
Decided highest focus to start the project soon
With the goal of not losing state assets and contributing to ensuring national energy security, the Politburo, the Secretariat, the Government Standing Committee, and the Prime Minister have made many conclusions and directions. to remove difficulties and obstacles in the implementation process so that PVN can soon complete and put the project into operation.
Since taking office, continuing the work of the previous term, the Government and the Prime Minister have had many meetings, worked, directed, considered and resolved the outstanding problems and problems with the Government. The goal is to soon complete the construction investment and put the project into operation and use.
The Prime Minister also assigned Deputy Prime Minister Le Van Thanh to directly direct and urge this task. Up to the beginning of April, Deputy Prime Minister Le Van Thanh had directly visited the factory site 4 times.
After many meetings of leaders of the Government, ministries, departments, sectors and the investor, PVN, to remove the project, the project has been rebuilt from the “freeze” position for many years.
The working group of the Government, the Vietnam Oil and Gas Group, ministries, branches and Thai Binh province, especially the collective of officials, engineers, workers and workers directly on the construction site have been decisive and practical. efficiently perform assigned tasks and tasks.
According to the report of PVN’s General Director Le Manh Hung, the project had encountered many difficulties, even legal problems, although it has been disbursed over 35,000 billion VND, but there has been no progress over the years. almost stopped construction from August 2018.
Recently, with the direct, drastic and close instructions of the leaders of the Party, State, Government and Prime Minister, encouragement, sharing responsibility, solving difficulties and problems motivated and pressured agencies with faith, striving to overcome difficulties and challenges, gradually restoring the project. Up to now, the project has been gradually controlled, gradually “revived” and completed important milestones.

The remaining work of the project is focused on testing, acceptance and completion of the coal transportation system.
On February 23, 2022, the project completed the first oil burning milestone of Unit 1. The plant tested reverse energization by oil on May 6 and is expected to burn coal for the first time on June 16. . It is expected that on May 8 or May 9, the project will connect to the grid with oil from Unit 1.
The Vietnam National Oil and Gas Group is striving that by November 30, 2022, it will commercially operate Unit 1 of the Plant and commercially operate the entire Plant on December 31, 2022.
However, there are still many difficulties ahead, the next milestones of the project will be a huge challenge for the investor and general contractor, as the equipment has been installed and not used for a long time. , despite the efforts of the parties to preserve, but before the test run, it is necessary to check and maintain, especially in the case of replacement…
The corporation, contractors and forces on the construction site are committed to making the most determination and efforts to complete the project on schedule, Mr. Le Manh Hung affirmed.
