Completion of electromechanical works at the Nam Ngiep 1 Hydro Power Project in the Lao PDR.

Hitachi Mitsubishi Hydro Corporation has successfully completed the electromechanical works at the Nam Ngiep 1 Hydro Power Project in the Lao PDR.
The re-regulation power station equipment including one 18-MW Bulb turbine generator was taken over in March 2019 and the main power station equipment including two 136-MW Francis turbine generators was taken over in August 2019 respectively. This achievement marks a new page in our history of hydro power plant manufacturing for over 100 years.
Hydropower generation, which contributes to reduction of CO2 emissions and provides stable electricity supply at low cost over a long operational period, is an environmentally friendly and renewable source of energy. HM HYDRO has more than 40 years of experience in the construction and maintenance of hydropower plants in Laos, beginning with its work on the Nam Ngum 1 hydropower project in 1971. HM HYDRO will apply the latest technology and know-how to this new project in order to contribute to the development of the Lao hydropower industry and the country's economy.
