The EVN International Joint Stock Company (EVNI) is speeding up its investment in hydroelectric power projects in Cambodia and Laos.
The projects include the Ha Se San 2 hydroelectric power project in Se San district of Cambodia’s Stung Treng province, which has been approved by the Government of Cambodia and will be carried out under the build-operate-transfer (BOT) form. EVNI contributed a 51 percent stake to the project.
The 400 MW plant is expected to be built in 2012 and completed by the end of 2016.
