Cavico completes Dasiat Hydropower Plant in Vietnam

Hanoi, Vietnam, September 8, 2009 – Cavico Corp., a Vietnam-based infrastructure development company, completed the construction of the Dasiat Hydropower Plant and has begun the process of transferring the project over to Southern Hydropower Joint Stock Company, the project’s owner.

Cavico started this $4.6 million construction project in July 2006. Cavico constructed and supplied equipment for waterways including surge tanks, intakes, the headrace tunnel and other construction related work surrounding the valve house.

Cavico used the blasting method to construct a headrace tunnel which is 1.44 miles long and 91 inches in diameter. The tunnel is considered to be the narrowest tunnel ever constructed in Vietnam by Cavico.

The Dasiat Hydropower Plant is located on the main flow of the Dasiat River, which is downstream from Dong Nai 3 and Dong Nai 4 hydropower plants, in Lam Dong Province, nearly 100 miles from Da Lat City and 155 miles north of Ho Chi Minh City.

The hydropower plant has been designed and engineered to have 13.5 MW capacity and is expected to supply 57.7 million KWh of electricity per year to the region.
