At the time of its inception, Nam Theun 2 was the largest infrastructure project that had ever been undertaken in the Lao PDR. Combining a challenging economic landscape in the southeast Asian region, the remote nature of the project site, the rigorous study of potential social and environmental impacts, the project developers have gone through great lengths before seeing their vision for a hydropower plant materialize.
Quality, Health, Safety and Environment
The Nam Theun 2 is committed to manage its operational risks related to its activities in terms of health & safety, hydro-safety and environmental for its staff, contactors and communities. To do so, NTPC makes the following commitments.
The Nam Theun 2 Power Company Limited (NTPC) is the company formed by the state-owned Lao Holding State Enterprise (LHSE) and private shareholders EDF Nam Theun Holding (EDF-NTH) and Electricity Generating Public Company Limited (EGCO) to build, operate and transfer the Nam Theun 2 Hydroelectric Project for the first 25 years of its operation.
