Korea’s state-run power generator also received an order from the Vietnamese central government in a consortium with Japan’s Marubeni Corporation to build another 1,200-megawatt coal thermal power plant in Nghi Son - part of the country’s national development plan to purchase electricity 25 years after completion.

The deal is expected to generate approximately 1.5 trillion won ($1.4 billion) for Korea.
