River damming starts at A Luoi hydro-power project   2009-04-27 - VietNamNet/VNA

 Deputy Prime Minister Hoang Trung Hai on Apr. 26 ordered to dam the A Sap river for the construction of the A Luoi hydroelectric power plant in A Luoi district, central Thua Thien-Hue province.

As the largest hydro-power electricity project in the province, the A Luoi power project will also help supply water and prevent floods and droughts on the one hand, while improving the environmental and weather conditions in the region on the other hand, the Deputy PM said.

He also stressed the project’s contribution to maintaining border security, restructuring the economy and developing production, especially aquaculture, in the locality.

Hai asked the investor – the Central Region Hydro Electricity Joint Stock Company – to cooperate with contractors and the locality in ensuring the construction tempo and quality.

The A Luoi project has two turbine groups with a total design capacity of 170 MW, to be built with a total investment of over 3.2 trillion VND.

The project, started 21 months ago, is expected to become operational by the end of 2011 and provide the national grid with 686.5 million kWh a year.

It will also help raise the capacity of the Huong Dien hydro-power plant at the Co Bi river.
