700-MW Coal-fired Power Plant to Generate Power in 2022
AKP Phnom Penh, June 30, 2020 —
Coal-fired power plant of two-350-MW units located in Preah Sihanouk province’s Stung Hav district will generate power to the grid in 2022 as the company is accelerating the construction process.
The power plant is a joint investment between CIIDC Erdos Hongjun Electric Power and China Huadian Hong Kong Co., Ltd. with a total investment capital of US$1.2 billion.
The update on construction process was shared by the company’s representatives during a meeting with Mr. Chhin Sengnguon, Deputy Governor of Preah Sihanouk province in Sihanoukville yesterday.
Mr. Victor Jona, Director General of Energy at the Ministry of Mines and Energy, told AKP on June 30 that the power generated from the under-construction power plant will contribute to the grid for people’s consumption and investment.
“As planned, the first unit of 350-MW will generate power in 2022 and the second in 2023,” H.E. Victor Jona said.
The construction of the coal-fired power plant began in late 2019.
