The information was heard at a working session on May 7 between representatives of the provincial People’s Committee and Sao Mai group, which is building the power project.
Constructed in two phases at a cost of 5.6 trillion VND (240.39 million USD), the 210 MWp project spans 275 ha in Tinh Bien district’s An Hao commune. Expected to be fully operational in 2020 with an annual output of about 2.5 billion kWh, it aims to ensure electricity supply for people living along both sides of the Vietnam-Cambodia borderline.  
Sao Mai Vice General Director Truong Vinh Thanh said the first phase of the plant has completed 90 percent of its workload and is due to finish on June 30 to join the national grid on schedule.
He said the group’s preparation for the second phase is facing difficulties in terms of land source and land clearance work, asking the local authorities to consider its proposal for more land serving the construction.
Nguyen Thanh Binh, Standing Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee, approved the proposal, saying the authority will help with land clearance activities for the project.
