South Korea’s Korea Western Power Co. (KOWEPO) has announced it will construct a 1,200MW coal-fired power plant in the central province of Quang Tri, Vietnam.

KOWEPO will own and operate the power plant for 25 years. It will also carry out construction management and operations and maintenance (O&M) services.

“We will establish a growth base in Việt Nam and make a full-scale entry into the Indochina power generation market by successfully completing this project,” Jung Young-chul, general manager of the Planning and Management Division of KOWEPO.

Officials expected the plant to become operational in 2021.
