10-megawatt hydropower plant set for Oct launch

CHINA'S Sinohydro Corporation said the smaller of two hydropower plants under construction is almost complete and will start supplying power to the national grid in October.

The plant, at Kamchay Dam in Kampot, will link to the provincial Electricite du Cambodge base station.
"We will distribute 10 megawatts to the EdC station in Kampot this year," said company representative Kim Sovan.

Beijing-based Sinohydro was awarded a 40-year concession to develop the two plants, he said, for a combined planned cost of US$280 million.
The 10MW plant is in the same compound as a larger 180MW plant also being built, he added.

"The 180MW hydropower plant is now 25 percent complete," said Kim Sovan, adding that the facility was scheduled to go online at the end of 2011.
