AES to sell Mong Duong 2 coal-fired plant in Vietnam

AES Corporation has signed an agreement to sell its entire equity interest in the 1,242 MW Mong Duong 2 coal-fired power plant in Vietnam to a consortium led by a US-based investor. …

The construction of the Mong Duong 2 was completed in 2015 under a build-own-transfer (BOT) contract, with a 25-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with Vietnam Electricity (EVN). This transaction is expected to close in late 2021 or early 2022, subject to customary approvals, including from the Government of Vietnam and the minority partners in Mong Duong 2. AES owns a 51 per cent equity interest in Mong Duong 2, Posco Energy Company Limited owns 30 per cent and Stable Investment Corporation, a subsidiary of China Investment Corporation, owns the remaining 19 per cent.
