Emergency Contingency Plan

Emergency Contingency Plan

 

An Emergency Contingency Plan has been finalised by NTPC, and approved by the Lao Government and the Dam Safety Review Panel. Information will be provided to populations downstream of the dam on (i) operation of the dam, including water flow fluctuations, and (ii) emergency measures during and after impoundment. NTPC has also put in place a safety team in Ban Thalang, equipped with several boats and a radio communication system. This is the first such plan to be devised in the Lao PDR, and its development in partnership with the government represents a significant capacity building benchmark for the country.
