Vietnam announced an expansion of its nuclear power programme on Tuesday, with eight plants planned for operation over the next 20 years. Initial plans called for four reactors but the notice said Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung had approved eight nuclear facilities, each with at least four reactors, by 2030.
The eight plants will generate a total of 15,000-16,000 megawatts of electricity. The government previously announced that a Russian firm had won the contract for Vietnam’s first nuclear power station, which is to begin operation in 2020.
Experts estimated the cost of Vietnam’s initial 4,000-megawatt facility at 11 billion to 18 billion dollars. The total 16,000 megawatts would then be in the cost range of 44 billion to 72 billion.
The eight nuclear facilities will have 13 nuclear reactors.
According to the plan, the reactors will be built in eight locations in the central provinces of Ninh Thuan, Binh Dinh, Phu Yen, Ha Tinh and Quang Ngai.
The first reactor, with a capacity of 1,000 megawatts, is scheduled to be operational by 2020, and the second by 2021.
The government said that between 30% and 40% of the construction work will be undertaken by domestic companies. It added that nuclear power output will reach 8,000 megawatts by 2025.
Nuclear power will account for 10% of the country’s total generation capacity
