Koh Kong dam plan

A joint Cambodian-Chinese study is to begin on the possibility of building an 80-megawatt

hydroelectric power plant on the Stung Tatai river in Thmar Bang district, Koh Kong

province. Officials said the Industry Ministry and the state-owned China National

Heavy Machinery Corporation have signed an agreement for the year-long study, which

will include an environmental impact assessment. Koh Kong Governor Yuth Phouthang

told media he hopes the project will improve his province's electricity supply, as

only 20 percent of the province's population has access to electricity and it is

very expensive.
