In Hong Ha commune, A Luoi district, Thua Thien-Hue province, the A Luoi Hydropower plant, the biggest one in Hue city, officially generated electricity on June 14th, after five years of construction.

The A Luoi plant, costing VND3.2 trillion, started the construction in June, 2007, by the Central Electricity Joint Stock Company. With capacity of 170MW, it is the largest hydro-electric plant built in the province.

After fully operational, the plant will add around 650 million kWh a year to the national grid, making contribution to the province’s electricity need in dry season. The power is transmitted to the 220kV Hue-Dong Ha Transformer Station.

Besides, the plant also provides more water to the Bo river for irrigation and aquatic culture as well as creates a beautiful eco-landscape for A Luoi District.
