This report contains the findings from the initial and rapid assessment of the potential threats and impacts of climate change to the O Mon IV combined cycle power station.
The study assesses the vulnerability of plant design, infrastructure and operations and sets priority areas for adaptation response. The challenge then is to determine which climate change threats pose tangible risks to the integrity, efficiency or output of the plant, what adaptation response is required, and how best to phase adaptation to minimize the incremental investment required. This study focuses on adaptation of the O Mon IV plant. Also, it presents significant insights for other power stations in the O Mon complex and throughout Viet Nam by developing and testing a methodology for the climate proofing of future investments.
