Cambodia and the French Government in 1991 and 1992, aid in the form of spare parts
and an engineer, Jean Kerbellee from Sulzer were provided by the French to repair
The C1 Power Plant has two brands of generators -Sulzer models and ones made by the
Worthington company of the United States. Spare parts for the Worthingtons are no
Number 11 came back on line on May 19 and will supply at least 2 megawatts of power.
The rehabilitation of No. 11 is just one component of assistance being provided under
the protocols. French aid totaling U.S.$ 15 million is being disbursed to support
projects in water supply, electricity, health, civil aviation, and railways.
