Background

According to press reports in 2015, the Ministry of Industry and Trade is seeking approval from the government to build a US$3.1 billion 1,600 MW coal plant in Cần Đước district, Long An province. The project would be built under a BOT (build, operate, transfer) arrangement by Korean Electric Power Corporation and Vinakobalt Long An.[1] With no progress in over two years, including no mention in Vietnam's long-range planning documents, it appears that the project is shelved.
