Borrowing from China to make a billion dollar thermal project
According to the Ministry of Industry and Trade, the reason for proposing Geleximco to TKV to carry out the Quynh Lap 1 thermal power plant project is because the capacity of Vinacomin does not meet the demand for capital to deploy the project on time.
Specifically, the Ministry of Industry and Trade said that by the end of September 2017, total debt of Vinacomin was about VND 78,000 billion, with a debt / equity ratio of 2.5 times.
If the capital is invested in Quynh Lap 1 thermal power plant, Vinacomin will have to raise another 39,000 billion dong of debt and after three years, the total debt of the group will reach over 100,000 billion dong, leading to the debt ratio. / equity will exceed the allowable limit.

Government guarantee, despite the initial agreement reached the capital contribution of TKV 36%, Kospo 34% and Samtan 30%.
As a result, the Ministry of Industry and Trade is not aware of when the parties reach the final agreement and will delay the project implementation and operation by 2022 – 2023 according to the revised electricity plan VII.
Although the proposal to deliver the Quynh Lap 1 thermal power plant project to the Geleximco-HUI joint venture, however, the ministry is concerned that 80% of the project’s capital will come mainly from China.
“The Geleximco and joint venture financing scheme is largely based on loans from China, with 20% of equity and 80% of loans. It is expected that the joint venture will raise capital from a bank complex led by the State Bank of China, “said Ministry of Industry and Trade.
The joint venture is also committed to rapid progress: if it is assigned to be the investor of Quynh Lap 1 thermal power plant, within 3 months from the date of establishment, the joint venture will sign the compensation and ground clearance agreement. The The next 2 months, the contract of management consultancy, technical supervision.
EVN expressed its unwillingness to hand over the thermal power project to Geleximco – HUI. EVN argues that Geleximco’s proposal to invest in the form of PPP is not regulated for electricity.
Long-established partnerships will slow the progress of the project. Up to now, Quang Trach 1, Quang Trach 2 thermal power projects have been assigned by the Prime Minister to EVN.
Previously, on July 31, 2017, Geleximco – HUI jointly signed a proposal in principle for investment in five projects Quynh Lap I, Quynh Lap II, Quang Trach I , Quang Trach II and Hai Phong III. PPP investment form, in which the partnership investment 75% – 80% of capital.
The second time on October 16, 2017, this partnership continues to have a letter to the Prime Minister proposed investment in two thermal power projects Quynh Lap I and Quang Trach II.
