Right from 1994, after the North-South 500kV power transmission system was put into operation, the Government paid great attention to the system safety protection by issuing Directive No. April 23, 1994 on the safety protection of the North-South 500kV power transmission system to direct relevant ministries, branches and local authorities at all levels to participate in the safety protection of the transmission system. 500 kV electricity.

In order to implement the Prime Minister’s Directive, on September 26, 1995, the Vietnam Electricity Corporation (now the Electricity of Vietnam) together with General Department I – Ministry of Home Affairs (now the Ministry of Public Security) signed Regulation on cooperation in protection work No. 3176/EVN/TCI, by 2015 the two sides held a review, revised and replaced it with Regulation No. 2502/QCPH-TCAN-EVN dated June 26, 2015 .

In the process of implementing the regulation, the two sides have closely cooperated in propaganda, advocacy, organization to protect and handle difficulties and obstacles from the stages of investment, construction, and liberation. site and in the future management and operation process; Many violations related to the electricity transmission grid safety corridor have been investigated, prosecuted and brought to trial by the police authorities in accordance with the law.

With the special importance of the 500kV power transmission system as the backbone of the national power grid, ensuring electricity supply for the country’s economic development, in the face of political security situation in the region and in the world. The world is still experiencing complicated developments, terrorist incidents continue to increase, “peaceful evolution” activities are still potentially dangerous. On December 4, 2017, the Prime Minister signed Decision No. 1944/QD-TTg approved the inclusion of the 500 kV power transmission system in the list of important works related to national security.

The inclusion of the 500 kV power transmission system in the list of important works related to national security is a great historical milestone for the National Power Transmission Corporation in particular and for Vietnam Electricity. South in general, along with the Hoa Binh Hydropower Plant; Son La Hydropower Plant.

However, for the 500 kV power transmission system by 2018 with a total length of 7,503 km and 28 500 kV substations with a total capacity of 5,454.4 MVA spread across 42 provinces and cities. With specific characteristics (not concentrated, spread across regions throughout the country, the safety corridor is as narrow as 7 meters at most) so security deployment will be very difficult and complicated.

With the function of being the permanent agency responsible to the Government to perform the unified state management of the protection of important works related to national security, to implement the Prime Minister’s Decision to ensure To ensure synchronization and achieve the highest results, leaders of the Ministry of Public Security, Ministries and People’s Committees of provinces and centrally run cities strengthen the state management of the protection of important works related to local national security. Police directors of provinces and cities need to closely coordinate with the National Power Transmission Corporation and the Vietnam Electricity Group, advise with the Steering Committees for the protection of the local power transmission system, and perform the analysis. assign tasks to units, implement the Prime Minister’s Decision on protecting important works related to national security.

The Decision No. 1944/QD-TTg dated December 4, 2017 on the inclusion of the 500 kV power transmission system in the list of important works related to national security is an underestimation of the special importance of 500 kV power transmission system in particular and the power transmission system in general in the national energy security development strategy. At the same time, it is also a message to the entire people of the country in raising the sense of responsibility in the work of participating in the safety of the power transmission grid, ensuring safe, continuous and stable power transmission for the public. economic, political, social, security, defense and electricity market activities in Vietnam.
