  • Vietnamese hydropower plants asked to increase discharges for drought relief

    TAM KY, Vietnam 5/24/12 (PennWell) – Operators of four hydropower plants in Vietnam's Quang Nam Province have been asked to increase their water discharge in order to save 15,000 hectares of drought-stricken rice growing areas.

    Owners of the 190-MW Song Tranh 2, 70-MW Song Con, 210-MW A Vuong and 220-MW Dak Mi 4 hydropower complexes received the request in documents sent by the Vietnam's Ministry of Industry and Trade and utility company Electricity of Vietnam earlier this week.

    Complying with the government's requests might be difficult, however, as upstream water levels are already low at some of the facilities, say some of the facility operators.

    The four hydropower plants sit on the Vu Gia and Thu Bon rivers in central Vietnam.
