Developing power grid infrastructure and ensuring stable power supply are important factors to attract investment funds and develop industries. Vinh Phuc Power Company (Vinh Phuc PC) has focused on building a synchronous grid system and carried out various grid repair and upgrade plans in industrial parks to gradually modernize electricity infrastructure to meet an increasing demand of enterprises for production expansion.

A 110-kV transformer station was recently inaugurated in Khai Quang Industrial Park, Vinh Yen City, Vinh Phuc Province. This is a particularly important project that ensures energy security, meets energy demand for socioeconomic development and attracts investment flows into Vinh Phuc province. This is the 9th transformer station in Vinh Phuc. They together generate a total output of 1,002 MWA. The new facility has helped ease the overloading operation of 110-kV Vinh Yen transformer station and 110-kV Thien Ke transformer station, improve power quality and reliability for tenants in Khai Quang, Ba Thien I, Ba Thien 2, Binh Xuyen 2 industrial parks and other consumers in Vinh Yen City and Binh Xuyen district.

For industrial parks in mountainous districts, Vinh Phuc PC has ensured a steady power supply for Lap Thach, Song Lo, Tam Dao and Tam Duong districts. Regarding the medium-voltage grid, since the beginning of the year, Vinh Phuc PC has energized 10 22-kV and 35-kV lines, built 87 new transformer distribution substations, converted and increased capacity of 115 transformers, and upgraded and installed 128 km of 400-voltage new transmission lines.

All power supply projects are in stable and full operation. The power loss has decreased from 4.8% in 2015 to 2.7% at present. Power supply reliability has increased, and outage and blackout indicators have fallen year after year.

In addition to grid infrastructure investment, Vinh Phuc PC pays special attention to grid management and operation to avoid overload-caused supply interruption, especially in high-demand places like industrial parks. The company is currently applying new technological equipment to grid management and operation.

In the coming time, Vinh Phuc PC will continue to work closely with related units to remove difficulties in project implementation, particularly important projects like 110-kV Tam Dao transformer station and a 63-MVA 110-kV transformer station in Khai Quang Industrial Park, expected to be completed by the end of 2020. The company will speed up other 110-kV transformer stations like Yen Lac, Phuc Yen II, Song Lo and Ba Thien to ensure power supply for Khai Quang, Binh Xuyen II, Ba Thien, Ba Thien II, Tam Duong II and Song Lo I industrial parks, and establish a modern synchronous electrical network to attract investment fund and develop industries in Vinh Phuc province.
