Dong Nai 3 Hydroelectric Power Plant’s first turbine was officially put into operation on January 8 in Dac Giong district, Dak Nong province, in the presence of Deputy Prime Minister Hoang Trung Hai.
Addressing the event, Deputy PM Hai called on Electricity of Vietnam (EVN) and the management board of Dong Nai 3 Hydroelectric Power Plant to ensure the turbine’s safe operation and efficiency. He urged them to run the second turbine of the plant in the first quarter in 2011 so that Dong Nai 4 plant can start working by the end of this year.
Deputy PM Hai suggested the EVN should continue to work in close coordination with localities to take care of people’s resettlement.
The construction of Dong Nai 3 Hydroelectric Power project began in 2004. Its total investment capital was VND6,000 billion. It consists of two turbines and produces over 600 million kW per hour every year.
The plant will serve to limit floods in the area, create a water source for Dong Nai 4 Hydroelectric Power Plant and provide water for agriculture use. It is also one of emulation activities to celebrate the coming 11th National Party Congress.Source: VOV
