Alstom to supply main equipment for two substations in Vietnam


Alstom has signed two contracts totaling approximately €16 million (approx. US$21 million), with the National Power Transmission Corporation (NPT), a subsidiary of Vietnam Electricity Group (EVN) to supply primary equipment and materials for the 500/220 kV My Tho and Vinh Tan substations in South Vietnam. Alstom will provide all electrical materials and equipment, as well as supervisory services for the 500/220 kV air-insulated substations. 

The 500 kV My Tho and Vinh Tan substations are key projects for infrastructure development in Southern Vietnam. Once completed, the My Tho substation will provide electricity for the Mekong Delta region. The 500 kV Vinh Tan substation will connect the Vinh Tan Thermal Power Complex, the biggest thermal power complex in Vietnam, to the national power grid, with a planned total capacity of 5,600 MW. 

The 500 kV My Tho and Vinh Tan substations will be the first in Vietnam to use a rated short circuit current of 63 kA - 3s for primary equipment - as per the new requirement set by the Vietnam Ministry of Industry and Trade to improve the reliability and stability of the national transmission network

Michel Burtin, Alstom Country President in Vietnam says, “These contracts highlight Alstom's leading position in the high voltage switchgear market as well as its long term commitment to support Vietnam’s power development plan. We are very pleased to continue to be a key partner in the rapid development of the electricity infrastructure in Vietnam." 

Alstom Grid has provided competitive and reliable solutions to the Vietnamese market for more than 20 years.
