Chinese-built hydropower project has high responsibility to protect environment: Cambodian official

The Chinese-built Lower Sesan II Hydroelectric power station has high responsibility for social and environmental protection, a Cambodian environment official has said.

Located in Stung Treng province’s Sesan district in northeast Cambodia, the 400-megawatt dam began operations in December last year after almost five years of construction.

The 781-million-U.S.-dollar project was a joint venture among China’s Huaneng Hydrolancang International Energy, Cambodia’s Royal Group and Vietnamese EVN International Joint Stock Company.
