Vietnam - Power Development Project : environment assessment report for the Combined Cycle Development at Phumy II (Vol. 2) (English)

The environmental impact assessment report addresses the impacts of a project to develop power generating capacity at Phumy in the South of Vietnam. The project will consist of two blocks of combined cycle plant of approximately 800 MW (megawatt) total. Each block will consists of gas turbines, waste heat boilers and a steam turbine. A Rehabilitation Action Plan (RAP) process will be completed to ensure compensation given in a fair and timely way to the 157 families who will be impacted directly. During the operation phase air emissions will be controlled by burning natural gas. Noise will be controlled by acoustic cladding of noisy plant. Risks of oil spills will be minimized by following the procedures of oil delivery, bunding and inspection of fuel and tanks, pipeline inspection, storage and handling of drummed oil, and oil spill clean up. The risk of chemical spillage will be avoided by implementing procedures for the management of their transport, unloading and storage. Aqueous emission will be treated so that the effluent will not have significant impacts on the receiving water. Impacts of the cooling water system will be mitigated by design of outfall to reduce extent of thermal plumes, by maintaining residual chlorine levels at less than 0.02 ppm, and by measures to reduce impingement of fish at the intake. Waste water streams will be treated, and all waste materials will be monitored and removed offsite for disposal or recycling.
