Power supply guaranteed for northern demand

Rising water levels at hydropower plants have ensured supply for average electricity demand in northern Vietnam, and load shedding is no longer necessary.

Producing power in the upcoming week will no longer face challenges as in the end of May and early June as flood season has arrived in the north and therefore there will be enough water to meet an average demand of 421 million kilowatt-hours a day, the Ministry of Industry and Trade said in a report Thursday.

"No cutback is needed for the north," it said.

The water level as of Thursday was higher than the minimum level required for power production at all power plants in northern Vietnam.

Most thermal power plants have resumed normal operations after a period of recording issues due to overload.

Many coal-fired power plants have enough coal for one month of production, but some have less than five days.

In the last few weeks northern Vietnam went through a power shortage due to dry weather and low water level at hydropower plants, which resulted in load shedding in many regions, including Hanoi.
