(KPL) Mr. Soumountha Bounleuam, Director of the Electricite du Laos in Xiengkhouang, said that the province recorded 14.000 families in seven districts access to electricity supply. The enterprise will keep on its electrification movement to one more district.

The director made the statement in a meeting to review the past one year activities of the Xiengkhouang branch of the Electricite du Laos. At the meeting, he pointed that he was pleased to hear that local residents in six districts, Paek, Kham, Khoune, Phasay, Phoukoud and Nong-haid, had enjoyed electricity supply.

The director also said that in the near future electricity supply in Xiengkhouang province would cover 50 per cent of the entire households in this province. The target for 2011 was to expand electricity supply to 5.000
families more.

14 households in Angsang access to electricity

(KPL) Fourteen households in Angsang village, Viengsay district, Houaphanh province, have been connected to power grid of a small scaled hydropower plant built in the village.

The construction of the Nam Gnord Small-Scaled Hydropower Project in Ban Angsang started in November last year and was over in a month later. The construction is technically supervised by the Energy and Mining Service of Houaphanh province. The construction costs 48 million kip and has been carried out by local people.

The German Embassy in Laos has financed US dollars 5,000 for the construction. An international organisation has also given US dollars 5,000 and the local people have contributed 4.1 million kip to the construction.

Angsang village has been selected for the implementation of the pilot project on developing a small-scaled hydropower plant in the province as the village is poor and located in remote area.
