Submarine Cable Construction Starts Off Vietnam

Vietnam’s Central Power Corporation (EVNCPC) has started the construction of submarine cable between Cham Islands and the national power grid.

The cable with 15.5 kilometers in length, costing USD 22.7 million, will be 85% funded by the State.

According to the local media, the project will also include nearly 30km of lines over the island and six transmission stations.

The aim of the project is to provide power to local people 24 hours a day, cutting the use of diesel-driven generators that are currently in use to provide power.

According to chairman and general director of the EVNCPC, Tran Dinh Nhan, the submarine cable project is scheduled to be completed in June this year.
