The project is undertaken by Thailand’s EGAT International Company Limited under a build-operate-transfer contract.

The coal-fired plant using supercritical technology will have two turbines, with a capacity of 660 megawatts each.

It is expected to generate 7,200 billion kWh of electricity and pre-tax revenue of 12.5 trillion VND (over 538 million USD) per year.

With a total investment of 55.093 trillion VND (2.37 billion USD), the Quang Tri 1 power plant is the largest project ever invested in Quang Tri province.

On the occasion, the Quang Tri Economic Zone Management inaugurated a 23.5-kilometre road connecting the Quang Tri Southeastern Industrial Park with Cua Viet Port, which was built at a cost of 700 billion VND (30.2 million USD).
