The Hongsa Mine Mouth power project is the first and the biggest lignite-fired power plant to be developed in Lao PDR.
The project is placed in Hongsa and Muang Nguen Districts of Xayaboury Province, Lao.
The plant will be located on a 76.4km² concession area, which is leased for a period of 25 years.
It will comprise a lignite-fired power plant, a lignite mine, a limestone mine and associated supporting infrastructure.
The plant will feature three 626 MW generating units producing a gross output of 1,878MW and a net available-for-sale power output of 1,653MW.
The plant is estimated to use approximately 14.3 million tonnes (Mt) of lignite a year, which will be sourced from the nearby Hongsa Mine.
