North-South 500kV transmission line: The turning point of Vietnam’s electricity industry

More than a quarter of a century has passed, but stories and emotions about the period of construction of the North-South 500kV transmission line (circuit 1) are still intact in the memory of the generation of people who have participated and witnessed the birth of that century’s work. Going back in time to the 90s of the twentieth century and the following years of renewing the country so that each of us can “feel” and “understand” the situation of “excess electricity” in the North and “shortage of electricity” continuously in the central and southern regions of our country.

It is also from the situation of “two evenings, one morning”, from the urgent requirements of reality, with the drastic direction of the leaders of the Party and State, with the urgent participation of the Ministry of Energy and the help of the Ministry of Energy. With the dedication of experts from other countries, in February 1992, Prime Minister Vo Van Kiet approved the technical and economic justification for the construction of the North-South 500kV power transmission line. On April 5, 1992, the groundbreaking ceremony for the construction of the North-South 500kV transmission line was held simultaneously in many provinces: Hoa Binh, Quang Nam – Da Nang, Dak Lak… The special feature of the construction of the North – South 500kV transmission line was the construction period within 2 years – an “impossible” milestone for the staff of the Energy sector at that time.

With the determination of the industry, the close direction of the Government, the participation of all levels, branches and localities, the support of people across the country, May 27 1994 has entered the history of the energy industry in particular and the country in general when the North-South 500kV transmission line was officially put into operation, bringing electricity from the North to the Central and South regions.

After 27 years of operation, the North-South 500kV transmission line has constantly promoted its role and great efficiency in power transmission, making an important contribution to the country’s socio-economic development. This is also the project that brings the highest efficiency on the total investment capital of the industry and opens the period of modernization of the electricity industry, and at the same time lays the starting foundation for the development of the national power transmission grid.

On the occasion of the 27th anniversary of energizing and operating the 500kV line, circuit 1, the National Power Transmission Corporation (EVNNPT) introduced the book “North-South 500kV transmission line – The turning point of Vietnam’s electricity industry”. The book is a grateful gift for those who “made history”, directly participating in the construction of the century-old North – South 500kV transmission line; dedicated to the generations of officials and employees of the Electricity industry in general, and the field of power transmission in particular, who have always accompanied and joined hands to build and develop the National Power Transmission Corporation more and more strongly.
