Soc Son Waste-to-Energy Plant
Located next to the Nam Son Waste Treatment Complex in Hanoi, to date, work on the first phase of the Soc Son Waste-to-Energy Plant has almost been completed.
On January 7, vice chairman of the Hanoi People’s Committee Nguyen Trong Dong visited the project which is invested by Hanoi-based Thien Y Environmental Energy JSC.
According to the investor, the Ministry of Construction’s State Authority for Construction Quality Inspection will check the project’s items for the third time on January 17. Once approved, the project will be put into service late this month.
Currently, 645 people are participating in the project implementation, including 125 foreign experts.
Vice chairman of the Hanoi People’s Committee Nguyen Trong Dong urged the investor to continue speeding up the project, adding that local authorities would offer the most favourable conditions for this.
The project was approved by Hanoi authorities in late 2017 and has a total investment of VND7 trillion (USD303 million).
According to the Hanoi Department of Construction, the city currently discharges 6,000 tonnes of waste every day. Most is buried at the Nam Son Waste Treatment Complex. It is hoped that this new project will reduce pollution levels, which have for years affected daily life in the capital.
The plant is expected to generate 75 MW of power per hour.
The HCM City Department of Natural Resources and Environment targets increasing the volume of domestic waste treated with incineration and recycling technologies to at least 80 per cent by 2025 and 100 per cent by 2030.
