The second turbine at the Dong Nai 4 Hydropower plant started contributing power to the national grid on Sunday, said the plant's manager Pham Van Cuc.
He said the Dong Nai 4 plant, located in the two Tay Nguyen (Central Highlands) provinces of Lam Dong and Dak Nong, was now operating two turbine groups with total capacity of 340MW.
This would contribute average annual electricity of over 1.109 billion kWh, said Cuc, who is also deputy director of the Hydropower Projects 6 management board under thof Viet Nam Electricity (EVN).
The main dam at the Dong Nai 4 Hydropower plant is 128m high and 4,176m long, while the diameter of its connecting tunnel is 8m.
Cuc said that along with the existing Dong Nai 3 hydropower plant with capacity of 180MW since 2011, the Dong Nai 4 Hydropower plant will be one of the two largest hydropower plants in the south.
Cuc said the two hydropower projects would provide water for agricultural production in the downstream region and would be a boost for socio-economic development for the two provinces.
