The ministries of public security, industry and trade, finance and national defence; Lai Chau Province People’s Committee; and Vietnam Electricity have been assigned to set up a protection plan.

The Lai Chau Hydropower Plant has a total capacity of 1,200MW and was put into operation in late 2016.

Along with Son La and Hoa Binh hydropower plants located along Da River, the plant helps supply about 25 billion kWh which is valued at US$1.2-1.3 billion per year.

Not only supplying water to the Red River Delta, Lai Chau Hydropower Plant plays a key role in protecting security of the northwest region.

Works must meet certain criteria to be added to the list of important works related to national security.

 

They must be places for gathering State secrets; keeping and preserving exhibits or documents of great importance; preserving materials or substances which are particularly dangerous for humans or the environment; or other material foundations of great importance related to national security.

Due to their important roles, the works require special security and absolute safety in the course of surveying, design, construction, management and use.
