|Project Details||The Dai Ninh hydroelectric plant has an installed capacity of 300MW, provided by two turbines of 150 MW each. Annual electricity production was reported to amount to 1.2 billion kWh per year. It is a multipurpose project that also provides irrigation infrastructure to the surrounding areas . |
The total project size amounts to 2,000ha, 1,900ha of which are covered by the reservoir. Around half of the reservoir land was agricultural land, the other half contained forest land .
