This fire happened at 10.45am in 7/3/2017 at the 1,200MW Vinh Tan 4 thermal power plant at its chimney.

The power centre will generate power mostly for the southern region.

The construction of Vinh Tan 4 is also carried out by four main contractors, namely Doosan, Mitsubishi Corporation, and domestic Pacific Ocean Engineering JSC and Power Engineering and Consulting 2 JSC.

 Once completed and fully operational by 2018, this power plant is projected to contribute about 7.2 billion kWh per year to the national grid.
