The Vietnam Government has prepared the energy master plan for power grid development in the Revised Power Development Plan (PDP) VII, also called the Revised National Power Development Master Plan 2011-2020, which includes: (i) upgrading power transmission grids to reach the grid reliability standard N-1; (ii) addressing overload incidents and low voltage quality, ensuring a higher degree of reliability; (iii) constructing 500 kV transmission lines to connect to large load centers; and (iv) constructing 200 kV double-circuit transmission lines where applicable, all with highest technological specifications.
Therefore, the government prioritizes a new 500 kV transmission line from the northern to the central region by ADB financing, which comprises three segments: (i) a Nam Dinh-Thanh Hoa transmission line, (ii) a Thanh Hoa-Quynh Lap transmission line, and (iii) a Quynh Lap-Vung Ang transmission line.
The “Northern to Central 500 kV Transmission Grid Reinforcement” Project will support Vietnam in the implementation of its Revised PDP VII by:
The project will contribute to provide adequate and reliable power supply to sustain economic growth, and expand employment and income-generating opportunities articulated in the socioeconomic development strategy of Viet Nam. It is included in the draft Country Operations Business Plan 2018 2020.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB
The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment.
