Heavy rains put Vietnam's nuclear power plant at risk of coal shortage

Numerous power plants in Vietnam are most likely to lack coal for electricity generation as hefty rains have actually cut coal production in north Quang Ninh province, according to various declarations from leading state-owned power companies.

Quang Ninh is the house for coal manufacturing in Vietnam.

Since July 31, combined coal stockpiles at 10 power plants under state-owned Vietnam Electricity stood at virtually 800,000 mt, which might be sufficient to cover five to 20 days' operations, the nation's largest power firm said late Friday.

The continuous stormy season, said to be the heaviest in 40 years, has actually forced Vietnam National Coal-Mineral Industries Holding Corp. Ltd.-- better referred to as Vinacomin-- to stop most manufacturing and sales of coal in the province considering that July 26.

Consequently, the business's overall coal manufacturing in July was lowered by 500,000 mt.

Highest priority would certainly be given to providing at least 6,000 mt/day of coal to a 622-MW device at the 1,244-MW Vinh Tan 2 power task in main Binh Thuan district, and 5,000 mt/day to Duyen Hai 1, Vinacomin included.

Numerous crucial coal mines in the province have actually been flooded.

ATMP na5 in the Web cam Pha city of Quang Ninh, from which Vinacomin had intended to create 1.7 million mt this year, would need up to five months to restore regular manufacturing operations, Vinacomin said.

Most rails and roads from coal mines to ports have been damaged.

Vinacomin will certainly activate all sources to attempt to recover regular coal transport operations after the rains, the company said, without giving at any time framework.

The General Department of Energy has actually convened with Vinacomin, EVN, and state-owned PetroVietnam to go over coal shipments for nuclear power plant, according to Vinacomin.

EVN and PetroVietnam are the greatest buyers of residential coal for their power plants.

EVN has also asked its devices to promptly seek various other resources of coal supply for electrical energy generation, EVN claimed.

Vietnam's coal-fired power plants produced 108.65 million kWh, representing 22.4% of the nation's overall generation capacity on July 30, practically no modification from the previous days.
