Three power plants delay export

(KPL) Developers of three hydropower plants have made a proposal to the government to put off the export of electricity generated by them one year after the original plan.
According to the Ministry of Energy and Mining, the three power plants included Nam Ngum III, Nam Theun I and Nam Ngieb I.
Nam Ngum III and Nam Theun I have proposed the delay from 1 January 2013 to 1 January 2014 and Nam Ngieb I from January 2014 to January of 2015.
The director of the Energy Commerce and Promotion Department, Mr. Saypaseuth Phomsoupha, said that the developers of the investment projects have faced difficulties and cannot generate electricity by the schedule.
"The obstacles include the concession agreements which have not yet been reached and the study on the installation of a 150-kv transmission line from Nabong to Thinthene to be done by parties concerned."
The three projects of Nam Ngum III, Nam Theun I and Nam Ngieb I are investment proposals by GMS Lao, GAMUDA Berhad and KANSAI Electric Power.
