JBIC and its partners have agreed to provide $1.99 billion of finance for Van Phong 1, a planned 2 x 660 MW supercritical coal-fired power plant in Van Phong district, Khanh Hoa province.

The loan will be co-financed with Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation, MUFG Bank, Ltd., Mizuho Bank, Ltd., Sumitomo Mitsui Trust Bank, Limited, Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation Limited and DBS Bank Ltd., and the Bank of China.
