Vietnam’s Ly Son Island will be connected to the grid by the third quarter of 2014. For this project, a cable line, of which 9.5 km will run on the mainland, 26 km under the sea, and 2.5 km on the island, will be constructed. The starting point of the cable line will be the 110 kV Dung Quat transformer station on the mainland and the end point will be the An Vinh commune in Ly Son district. The project’s estimated cost of 652.5 billion dong will be split between the government and the implementing company – Central Power Corporation (CPC), an affiliate of the state-owned EVN – in accordance with the 85:15 ratio. The government has identified Ly Son Island as one of the six islands in the country that should have a strong economy and solid defence.
