On 24/7/2022, Construction Joint Stock Company 47 (HOSE: C47), an associated company of Vu Phong Energy Group, signed a contract for the construction of the Nam Pha, Nam Phak, and Phouphong Dams as part of the Nam Phak Hydropower Project in Lao People’s Democratic Republic and Song Da 5 Joint Stock Company. This is the first contract in the C47 and Song Da 5 strategic cooperation program, which was signed previously to exploit and promote the two units’ strengths in operation and business, particularly the building of large projects overseas.

The Contract Signing and Construction of Nam Phak Hydropower Project

At the ceremony, the two sides signed two contracts: one for the building of the Nam Pha Dam in Nam Phak, Phouphong, and another for the design, coordination, and experimentation of the Nam Phak hydropower project, with a total value of roughly 800 billion VND and a completion period of 1,458 days.

C47 and Song Da 5 have coordinated talks with the project investor for over a year to sign this contract. The major volume of the construction contract is roughly 6 million m3 of earth and rock excavation, which is one of the C47’s strengths. C47 will undoubtedly complete the contract assuring advancement, quality, and efficiency with the current capacity.

The Significance of Nam Phak Hydropower Project

The Nam Phak hydropower project, with a total installed capacity of 128 MW, is located in the southwest corner of the Bolaven Plateau, about 10 kilometers southwest of Paksong in the Lao People’s Democratic Republic’s southern region, and takes advantage of the 700-meter elevation between the plateau and the plain to the south. Flows from many streams on the plateau that flow together in the northwest and southwest directions will be combined and sent to the Nam Pha reservoir through two streams. The preferred scheme includes two reservoirs and two power-producing facilities, the bigger of which is placed on the shores of Houay Namphak near the plateau cliffs.

This key bidding package determines the project’s quality, and selecting a reputable construction contractor is needed. C47, a long-established and leading firm in the construction and construction of irrigation and hydropower projects, civil and industrial, across the nation, completely satisfied the criteria of the bidding package and was chosen for implementation.
