Today, 6th May, 2015 at Muong Cha district, Dien Bien province, Nam Muc Hydropower Company (developed by Bitexco Group) has successfully put the first generator group into no-load operation.

Nam Muc hydropower plant was designed to have two generator groups with the total capacity of 44 MW, annual power output of 176.33 KWh. This is the biggest hydropower plant in Dien Bien province currently.
So far, the construction has been completed. The investor has already refunded the full compensation as regulations to households in the affected area of the project, implemented a long-term agricultural production plan and also done the reforestation of 13.2 ha.

This event is also a significant milestone in the whole construction and operation of Nam Muc hydropower plant, once again affirmed the capacity, prestige and experience of Bitexco Group in hydropower investment.
