Located in Attapeu Province in the south of Laos, Nam Kong No. 3 Hydropower Station is a diversion-type hydropower station mainly for power generation. The Project started on November 1, 2017, with an installed capacity of 54 MW and a normal storage level of 541.8 meters. The maximum storage capacity is 430 million cubic meters.


During the construction period, CGGC, which undertook the construction task, adopted various measures at the same time, innovated ideas, established the quality control system, and strengthened the safety production management, ensured "zero defect" and "zero accident" in engineering construction quality. In the severe and complicated situation of the global epidemic situation, the Project Department insisted on epidemic prevention and control, resumed work and production, and overcame many difficulties such as shortage of personnel, complex structure of the Project, poor geological conditions and difficult construction in rainy season, and focused on the management of the "five key elements" of the Project in terms of technology, materials, construction, quality and safety, making sure that the Project passed the discharge test of the dam spillway on November 2, and was completed and accepted on November 3.


Since the signing of the contract, China and Laos have attached great importance to the Project, and during the construction period, responsible persons from the Lao side have visited the Project for many times to learn about the progress of the Project on the spot.
