SEOUL, March 22 (Reuters) - South Korean utility firm Korea Electric Power Corp (KEPCO) and Japanese trading company Marubeni Corp have won a $2.3 billion contract to build and operate a coal-fired power plant in Vietnam, KEPCO said on Friday.

The venture plans to secure financing from Korea Eximbank and the Japan Bank for International Cooperation, and contract the plant construction to Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction.
