BCPG to supply electricity from Laos to Vietnam in September 2022

BCPG Public Company Limited has announced that it plans to commence cross-border transmission line project selling green electricity from Laos to Vietnam.

Renewable energy will be supplied through a 220 kV transmission system to state-owned Vietnam Electricity (EVN). Energy will be sourced from BCPG’s two hydropower plants in Laos, namely, Nam San 3A and Nam San 3B. Supply of electricity to Vietnam is scheduled to commence in September 2022. BCPG acquired the transmission system after gaining a 25 per cent stake in Laos-based Nam Tai Power Sole Company Limited. The investment was made through BCPG’s subsidiary, BCPG Indochina Company Limited.
