On the afternoon of September 29, 2020, at Quan The village, Phuoc Minh commune, Thuan Nam district, Ninh Thuan province, Trungnam Group energized the transformer station and 220 / 500kV line transmission line project combined with Trung Nam Thuan Nam Solar Power Plant 450 MW.
The substation has 02 transformers 500 kV / 900 MVA designed and manufactured by SIEMENS – the world’s leading electrical equipment company from Germany. Two transformers with a total capacity of 1800 MVA are capable of supplying electricity to two provinces and cities. Transformer capacity 900 MVA, is the largest capacity gram in most countries in the world today. These are the most important equipment of the project, acting as the “heart” of renewable energy power projects when performing the task of increasing – reducing voltage to ensure suitable demand for electricity consumption. Meanwhile, the transmission line of 500kV, 220kV is longer than 17km stretching from Phuoc Minh commune, Thuan Nam district, Ninh Thuan province to Vinh Tan commune, Tuy Phong district, Binh Thuan province.
220 / 500kV transformer station and transmission line project combined with Trung Nam Thuan Nam Solar Power Plant 450 MW, in addition to exploiting more than 1 billion kWh – equivalent to 1GWh of electricity from renewable energy sources (first year: 1 , 2 billion kWh), will make an important contribution to the release of the power grid capacity for the Ninh Thuan and South Central Coast regions.
The completion and putting into operation of the 220 / 500kV transformer station and transmission line in combination with the 450 MW Trung Nam Thuan Nam Solar Power Plant has several important meanings:
1. Contribute to the realization of Resolution 115 of the Government making Ninh Thuan a renewable energy center of the country.
2. Making an important contribution to releasing the capacity of renewable energy plants in Ninh Thuan and Binh Thuan areas, avoiding deflation, causing damage to the factories of thousands of billion VND per year, improving the environment. business in the province in engaging with investors and contributing to solving the national shortage of electricity but in renewable energy is deflationary.
3. Adding more than 1 billion KWh of electricity each year to the system, promoting the development of renewable energy to replace other non-renewable sources, especially environmental protection.
4. Thoroughly grasp Resolution 55 of the Politburo, promote the development of renewable energy, private participation in source development and construction of transmission infrastructure.
The 220 / 500kV transformer station and transmission line in combination with the 450 MW Trung Nam Thuan Nam Solar Power Plant is an urgent and strategic project serving the development of the power transmission system of Ninh Thuan province in particular, region. The Central Coast in general and beyond is the entire national power transmission infrastructure.
