With energy demands growing rapidly, Vietnam is optimising electricity generation to ensure its power-hungry industries stay on the grid. The Vietnamese government expects the electricity demand to reach 360 billion kWh in 2020, compared to a projected 210 kWh in 2015. In line with the rising demand, total investment for the power sector is estimated to reach $48.8 billion in 2020 and nearly $75 billion in the period from 2021 to 2030. Given this scenario, the Vietnamese have been exploring more efficient ways to generate power, both in terms of costs as well as impact to the environment.
One solution is the General Electric (GE) high-efficiency 9HA gas turbine, which uses less gas-per-megawatt than any other turbine in the market. Since it was introduced, GE’s world-class HA technology has been shipped to 12 countries worldwide.
“HA technology has proven that it is ready to help meet the growing global need for cleaner, more efficient, larger blocks of power,” said Ramesh Singaram, president of Power Generation, Asia Pacific, GE Power and Water.
