The mechanism was removed, the project reached the destination
On the afternoon of May 13, leaders of the Vietnam Oil and Gas Group, the Committee for the Management of State Capital at Enterprises, and the People’s Committee of Thai Binh Province were present at the plant. Thai Binh Thermal Power 2 to witness an important event: the oil grid integration ceremony of Unit 1, marking the first time the project has generated electricity on the national grid.
After the countdown of ‘3-2-1’, factory leaders and employees clapped loudly for a moment that seemed never to have been when this project was in the spotlight many years ago.
On the way to leave the central control room, a leader of Thai Binh Provincial People’s Committee could not hide his emotions and shared that the leader of the State Capital Management Committee at enterprises was walking: “I’ve been waiting for this moment for a long time. . More than 10 years already!
Right after that, there were months of struggle between the two views of “stop or continue” to implement this $2 billion project. The decision was difficult when the project had poured 32 trillion at that time. Leaving the project means almost losing all the money invested. If you continue, you will encounter a mechanism to invest money in the project.
At the end of July 2019, 4 Central Committee members present at Thai Binh 2 thermal power project discussed how to rescue the project. PVN’s chairman at that time, Mr. Tran Sy Thanh, affirmed: “Every member of the Board of Directors signed a signature, but the higher ministries hesitated and did not make a specific decision right away. We were responsible first. The Party and State are about to use money, but they have to give us the green light to go.”
The reason is that at that time, the money for the project to continue construction was ready, but the mechanism to ‘pour’ money in was not yet available.
But it took a long time after that meeting for the project to get the ‘green light’ mechanism and grant the construction practice to wait for the completion date.
Witnessing the project of connecting to the grid with oil of unit 1, PVN Chairman Hoang Quoc Vuong could not hide his joy. When he was still in the position of Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade, Mr. Vuong was one of the people who directly proposed many mechanisms and policies for the project to continue, so that tens of trillions of billions were poured into not ‘dumping rivers into the sea’.
“This is an important milestone to move towards the next milestones and put the project into commercial operation in 2022. After the milestone of connecting to the power grid of Unit 1, the workload is very large. The project manager and general contractor continue to closely coordinate to continue promoting the spirit of creativity and responsibility to put the unit into coal-fired power generation. Time is very tight, the volume of work is very large,” said Mr. Hoang Quoc Vuong to the Project Management Board and contractors present at the ceremony.
Waiting for the next important milestone
Up to now, the overall progress of Thai Binh 2 Thermal Power Plant Construction Project has reached more than 93%; design reached 99.9%, procurement completed about 97.32%; about 40% of the trial run is completed; construction and installation work completed about 93.88%.
To complete the project in 2022, a huge amount of work is waiting ahead. Mr. Nguyen Hung Dung-Member of the Board of Directors of PVN, Head of the Steering Committee of Thai Binh 2 Thermal Power Plant project confided: After a long time due to difficulties in epidemics, interruption of supplies, interruption Breaking the supply chain of raw materials and especially from the mobilization of human resources, the project has reached an important milestone. The Project Management Board, the general contractor and the subcontractors have closely coordinated and emulated production labor to complete the milestones.
“The completion of the unit’s successful completion of oil grid connection with safety and stability specifications, especially environmental requirements is an important milestone. But putting coal generating sets is even more important – this is an extremely challenging milestone for PVN. Because burning with oil, misting technology is simple, but coal burning depends a lot on the type of coal, coal quality, conveyor systems, crushers, and the system of pumping coal into the furnace, which is very complicated. “, said Mr. Nguyen Hung Dung.
According to Mr. Nguyen Hung Dung, Thai Binh 2 Thermal Power Plant uses domestic coal, to prepare coal source PVN has worked with Vietnam Mineral Coal Group. Up to this point, the agreement to supply coal for the plant has been basically agreed, and TKV is committed to ensuring the right coal source of the right quality and type to ensure the continuous, stable and long-term operation of the plant.
Mr. Pham Trung Kien, General Director of PETROCONs said: Currently, the coal and limestone transportation system has completed 60% of the schedule. The coal transportation system is installed under the supervision of a foreign contractor. After completing this coal test system, it will be possible to proceed to the first coal burning milestone of unit 1.
“In order to ensure the safe first coal burning process, in addition to the investor signing a contract with TKV, the process of monitoring when receiving and transferring coal will be coordinated by the investor and the general contractor to ensure quality, can control the quality of coal,” noted Mr. Pham Trung Kien.
During the past time, the Government has continuously urged and urged this project to accelerate progress.
On May 8, 2022, Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh and the Government’s delegation came to inspect and work at the project. Speaking at the meeting, the Prime Minister praised and highly appreciated the efforts, efforts and responsibilities of workers on the construction site, shared some lessons, and continued to review and adjust the organize work to ensure thrift, efficiency and safety.
Previously, with the goal of completing Thai Binh 2 Thermal Power Plant with quality assurance with schedule by the end of 2022, within only 6 months, Deputy Prime Minister Le Van Thanh 4 times directly to the construction site, directing, hot handling of each problem, mechanism, policy, creating trust and above all, timely encouraging employees at the Project.
Now, the mechanism for the project has been cleared by the Government, and the project progress is still being ensured. From a seemingly irretrievable project, Thai Binh 2 Thermal Power Plant is hoping to reach commercial operation day, contributing more power to the North, which has been warned about the risk of power shortage. .

Deputy Prime Minister Le Van Thanh proposed to prioritize human resources, capital and equipment to the maximum extent to ensure that they can connect to the grid of unit 1 of Thai Binh 2 Thermal Power Plant before April 30, 2022, shortening it by more than 1. month.
