08:00 | 31/07/2008
VGP – Việt Nam’s first geo-thermo-electric plant with an 18.6 MW capacity will be built in Mộ Đức suburban district of the central province of Quảng Ngãi.

ORMAT Technologies (US), the world’s leading group on geo-thermo-electricity, was selected by PetroVietnam Power Corporation (PV Power) as its technical partner.  

Thanks to ORMAT’s technology, the sources of geo-thermo energy (water, mineral water, steam- gas mixture) will be channeled to heat-bags where a high pressure is created to warm up geo-thermo liquids. This is a closed environmentally-friendly process.  

PV Power, the chief investor, revealed that it is surveying another possible site in Quảng Ngãi Province.
