The project is located about 90 km from the center of Lai Chau city, with the goal of fully exploiting the potential water resources in Pan Ho and Then Theo Ho streams, with the task of generating electricity and transferring it to the national grid to meet part of the regional and national loads.
When the factories are built, about 40 km of local inter-commune roads will be renovated. Every year when the project cluster goes into power generation, it will provide an output of about 160 million KW, bring in about 195 billion dong in revenue, and pay taxes to the state budget about several tens of billions of dollars, thereby bringing significant revenue to Lai Chau province’s budget. During 2-3 years of construction, the project will create jobs for about 300 local people, after going into operation, it will bring stable jobs for about 60 local ethnic minority employees.
