EVN boosts hydroelectric power project in Cambodia

EVN International JSC, a subsidiary of Electricity of Vietnam (EVN), has laid out its plan of compensation and resettlement for local residents living around the new hydroelectric power project in the Cambodian province of Stung Treng.

The Han Se San II hydroelectric power project, a joint venture between EVN International and Cambodia’s Royal Group, is located in Sesan district and will have a total capacity of 400 MW. The five-turbine plant will be built with an expected capital of US$800 million.

At a meeting with provincial and local leaders in Phnom Penh on June 2, EVN International JSC representatives presented steps including compensation and resettlement and the execution of relevant parties’ rights, as well as the form of a Compensation and Resettlement Committee (CRC) and a Working Group (WG) headed by Cambodian state officials.

EVN International Deputy General Director Nguyen Thanh Huan said he hopes the CRC and WG will start their jobs in October.
