GE has secured an order from Samsung C&T Corporation that will provide power generation equipment for PetroVietnam Power Corporation (PV Power)’s Nhon Trach 3&4 Power Plant in Ong Keo Industrial Park in the Nhon Trach district. Once in commercial operation in 2025, Nhon Trach 3 & 4 is expected to deliver over 1.6 gigawatt (GW) of electricity, and it will be the first power plant fueled by liquefied natural gas (LNG) in the country.
For the Nhon Trach expansion, GE will provide two blocks of more than 800 megawatts (MW) each including a GE 9HA.02 gas turbine, an STF-D650 steam turbine, a W88 generator, a Once Through Heat Recovery Steam Generator (OT HRSG) and GE’s integrated Mark VIe Distributed Control System (DCS). GE’s OT HRSG technology is a key enabler in advanced water-steam cycles delivering higher combined cycle efficiency, while Mark VIe control systems will help PV Power improve asset visibility, reliability, and availability while reducing operating and maintenance costs.
Once in operation, the new power plant is expected to provide electricity for Ho Chi Minh City, Dong Nai, and Ba Ria – Vung Tau provinces.
