Koh Kong -Cambodia 18/12/2020
The Chinese-built Lower Stung Russei Chrum hydropower station, located in Southwestern Koh Kong, Cambodia, has been established for 7 years to generate renewable energy from a water dam, aiming for supplying the province’s towns with electricity. However, the local people in Koh Kong who live near the power station have never been connected to the grid nor the electricity in their own houses. Hydropower station has a total installed capacity of 338 megawatts and a designed annual output of 1.19 billion kilowatt-hours.
