Ly Son ready to connect to national power grid

Quang Ngai, September 16 (VNA) - A 22kV undersea power transmission cable line was connected successfully to a transformer station on Ly Son island district’s An Vinh commune, the central province of Quang Ngai, on September 15.

The work was undertaken by a contractor partnered by the Italia-based multinational company Prysmian and Vietnam’s Thai Duong company under the supervision of the Vietnam Electricity Group (EVN) and relevant authorities.

The cable is now being fixed firmly to ensure absolute safety and smooth operation for the network, which is scheduled to officially run on September 28.

The project worth over 652 billion VND (31.1 million USD) comprises an 8.7 km- long middle-voltage transmission line in Binh Son district and a 26.2m undersea cable line connecting Ly Son district.

Once joining the national power grid, the undersea cable line will greatly contribute to national security and marine industry development of the island district and will benefit 22,000 islanders.

Fifteen nautical miles from land, Ly Son, covering 10 sq.km, is the only island district of Quang Ngai.

It lies on the sea route from the north to the south of Vietnam and at the gateway of Quang Ngai’s Dung Quat Economic Zone, as well as of the central key economic region.
