PROJECT OBJECTIVE

This project aims to improve peak load supply and the electricity system stability, reinforcing its availability to integrate more renewable energy. It will also contribute to replacing the fossil production (estimated at 220GWh/year) and avoid 68 kt of greenhouse gases emission per year.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

AFD granted a €74.7 million non-sovereign concessional loan to Vietnam Electricity (EVN), aiming at extending the current Ialy hydropower plant capacity to 1 080MV, thanks to the installation of two additional turbines of 180 MW each. The rest of the project will be financed by EVN and other credit institutions. With no added flooded area, the Ialy hydropower plant extension project aims to take advantage of water overflows to increase electricity production,.
