Dam ready to go online

China’s leading dam builder Sinohydro Corporation said it will begin feeding electricity from its 10-megawatt (MW) Kamchay Dam in Kampot province to Electricite du Cambodge from December 7. Sinohydro spokesman Kim Sovan said the launch was two months behind schedule, as the company was waiting for government officials to be available for the opening ceremony. It is the first of three dams worth a combined US$280 million that the company plans to operate under a 40-year government concession. The three dams will have 180MW combined generating capacity.
