Wednesday, January 23, 2013

Last year ÅF finished their assignment for the Son La RCC dam, the largest hydro power plant in Vietnam. On 17th January 2013 ÅF signed a new contract worth 1.9 Mio USD for the Lai Chau RCC dam. ÅF takes the position of sub-consultant to Power Engineering Consulting JSC No. 1, a former subsidiary of the project owner Electricity of Vietnam.

 

ÅF will provide the consulting services for the construction drawings design and design supervision during construction of the 137 m high Lai Chau RCC dam, which is part of the 1’200 MW Lai Chau hydro power plant upstream of Son La and located in Vietnam’s Northwestern Lai Chau Province. The dam will create a reservoir with a total storage of 1’200 Mio m3. When completed in 2017 the Lai Chau hydro power project will produce 4’670 GWh of energy annually. ÅF already carried out the earlier technical design services for the Lai Chau RCC dam.
