The Chiem Hoa green hydropower plant in Tuyen Quang province, the first
of its kind in Vietnam, went operational on March 4.

Funded by International Investment, Construction and Trade Company,
construction of the 48MW facility began on October 12, 2009, under the
engineering-procurement-construction method. The 1.828 trillion VND (85
million USD) facility has three turbines.

The plant is expected to produce 198.6 million kWh of electricity for the national grid.

Addressing the event, Deputy Prime Minister Hoang Trung Hai requested
the investor to work closely with the provincial Department of
Agriculture and Rural Development to regulate water resources in the dry
season, protect dams, cope with floods and devise contingency plans.

The investor was also asked to pay attention to personnel training to help the plant operate smoothly.-VNA
