GE Gas Power on May 16 announced it has secured an order that will provide power generation equipment for PetroVietnam Power Corporation (PV Power)’s Nhon Trach 3&4 Power Plant, marking GE’s first H-Class gas turbine order in Vietnam.

This project will contribute to the implementation of Vietnam’s announced commitment to achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 by supporting the rapid expansion of renewable energy through its dispatchable power profile.

GE’s OT HRSG technology is a key enabler in advanced water-steam cycles delivering higher combined cycle efficiency, while Mark* VIe control systems will help PV Power improve asset visibility, reliability, and availability while reducing operating and maintenance costs.

By using highly efficient natural gas, GE’s H-class leading technology power plants have a lower environmental impact, with 60% fewer carbon emissions compared to thermal plants of the same electrical output powered by coal.

“Renewable energy is expected to grow significantly in Vietnam while at the same time, lower-carbon and highly efficient gas power generation will play a crucial role in supporting this growth while ensuring grid stability and reliability,” said Ramesh Singaram, President and CEO Asia, GE Gas Power.

“This first of its kind project is expected to open up a new chapter for gas power generation in Vietnam, and we are proud to begin developing the first HA project in the country, in alignment with its national energy goals for a more sustainable national economic growth,” Ramesh Singaram said.

In Vietnam, GE’s equipment powers 11 power plants and provides up to 25% of Vietnam’s electricity needs. Throughout the country, GE’s projects employ over 1,300 workers across six locations.

For the Nhon Trach expansion, GE will provide two blocks of more than 800 megawatts (MW) each including a GE 9HA.02 gas turbine, the company’s most efficient 50 Hz gas turbine, an STF-D650 steam turbine, a W88 generator, a Once Through Heat Recovery Steam Generator (OT HRSG) and GE's integrated Mark* VIe Distributed Control System (DCS).

Once becoming operational in 2025, Nhon Trach 3 & 4 are expected to deliver over 1.6 gigawatts (GW) of electricity.

In addition, on May 11, 2022, a memorandum of understanding (MOU) on solutions developed to improve the efficiency of the existing Nhon Trach 1 power plant and long-term cooperation on the maintenance of Nhon Trach 3 & 4, was signed between GE and PV Power in the presence of Vietnamese Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh, during his visit to the US.
