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.
When project construction began, one of the first tasks was to ensure that activities did not cause unaddressed problems for local people. Building the new roads, Power Station, Switchyard and transmission lines, plus Regulating Pond and Downstream Channel, caused disturbances for villagers, including loss of land. To compensate families, and offer livelihoods assistance to those most affected, Nam Theun 2 established a ‘Project Lands’ team in Gnommalat.
