Viet Nam: Capacity Building of the National Power Transmission Corporation in a Competitive Power Market Environment

Sovereign Project | 42497-012

Summary

In line with the Government?s power sector reform roadmap, the Government approved EVN?s proposal to establish the National Power Transmission Corporation (NPT) on 1 July 2008. NPT is a fully state-owned single member limited liability company under EVN and is now officially in operation. NPT is responsible for the investment, construction, operation and maintenance of the transmission networks in Viet Nam including 220 kV and 500 kV lines and associated substations.

The TA will help develop a 5-year business plan for the newly established NPT which is urgently needed to support the power sector reform road map of the Government.
