Safety checks of hydropower projects urged

Tuesday, 30/12/2014 GMT+7

HCMC – The Ministry of Construction has asked the Ministry of Industry and Trade and provincial governments to review and inspect all small- and medium-scale hydropower projects under construction nationwide following a serious tunnel collapse at Da Dang hydropower plant.

The construction ministry said in a document sent last week to the industry ministry and provincial governments that the incident at the hydropower project in the Central Highlands province of Lam Dong on December 16 showed that small- and medium-scaled hydropower projects put workers at risk.

Therefore, the construction ministry has urged the industry ministry and provincial authorities to review and strictly monitor construction, and safety and quality management at such hydropower plants, especially those in the process of building tunnels or having prolonged construction schedules and those in the areas with complex geology.

The objective is to prevent a similar incident at the Da Dang hydropower plant from happening at other hydropower projects.

Pham Sy Liem, chairman of the Vietnam Construction Association, again warned against the incidents at hydropower plants in recent times after the tunnel collapse last week.

Vietnam currently has 284 operational hydropower plants with a total capacity of nearly 14,700 MW, and 204 others with a combined output of 6,146 MW under construction expected to be put into service by 2017.
