China-funded power transmission lines inaugurated in Cambodia

A China-funded power transmission system in the length of 100 km was inaugurated in southern Cambodia’ s Kandal Province on Thursday after four years of construction.

The project included two substations and a 230-kilovolt transmission line.

The project was built by the China National Heavy Machinery Corporation at the cost of 83.4 million U.S. dollars in which 91 percent was a concessional loan from the Chinese government.

The transmission system has played a vital role in importing the electricity from generation sources such as hydropower plants and coal-fueled power plants.
