HANOI -- Samsung C&T will partner with Vietnamese construction company Lilama to build Vietnam's first liquefied natural gas power facilities as the country works to pivot away from coal.

Lilama announced this week a $940 million engineering, procurement and construction contract alongside the Samsung group company to build two plants in the southern province of Dong Nai, with a total capacity of 1,500 megawatts. Turbines will be sourced from General Electric. Commercial generation is scheduled to begin between 2024 and 2025.
