Sinohydro signs deal to build two hydro plants in Laos

Sinohydro Corp., China’s largest builder of hydropower generation, has agreed to build two hydroelectric projects and a high-voltage transmission link in Laos in a deal worth $559 million.

The deal with Laos’ state-owned electric utility, Electricite Du Laos, calls for building a 130-MW hydropower plant and a 47-MW hydropower plant on the Nam Kham River. The deal also calls for the construction of a 230-kilovolt transmission line from Laos’ Xiengkhouang to Luang Parabang city.

SinoHydro recently signed an engineering-procurement-construction contract to build the 63-MW Felou hydroelectric project on the Senegal River in Mali. (HydroWorld 5/31/09)
