Development progresses on Cambodia's 338-MW Russei Chrum Krom hydropower project as water is now being impounded at the complex's lower reservoir, according to the China Gezhouba (Group) Corporation.

The plant's upper 206 MW station was put into operation in 2013 and includes a 124-meter-tall concrete-faced rockfill dam.

Meanwhile, the lower station, which has a capacity of 132 MW, includes a 58.5-meter-tall roller-compacted concrete gravity dam.

Russei Chrum Krom's upper and lower plants are located approximately eight kilometers from each other.
