LAI CHAU (VNS) – Viet Nam Electricity closed a valve and effectively began storing water at Lai Chau hydropower plant on June 20.

The move is designed to facilitate the upcoming operations of the first turbine this December and to ensure the completion of the entire plant by 2016, a year ahead of schedule.

Pham Hong Phuong, Head of the project management board, noted that early completion will save up to VND5 trillion (US$230.4 million).

Significant efforts were made to resettle locals outside the scope of the dam and finish the Nam Nhun-Muong Te-Pac Ma road for smooth traffic flow.
