The 230kv Thavieng S/S-Laoksao S/S Transmission Line, with a total length of 220 km, is to transmit electric power from Thavieng Substation in XiengKhuang Province to Laksao Substation in Bolikhamxai Province and further to connect the Central 1 with the Central 2 regional power networks as well as to connect other possible local networks in Laos, and also to transmit power to Nakadok Mining area. The construction of the line will effectively improve the power supply situation in central Laos, support the power demand produced by the planned industrial area, financial district and grain base, and become the new engine for economic boom in central Laos.


The 115kv Nam Phay HPP-Thongkoun2 S/S Transmission Line, located in Xaysomboun Province, is to transmit the electric power generated by Nam Phay Hydropower Plant to Thongkoun 2 Substation, constituting trunk line system linked within Central 1 Regional Power Network that secures power stability with improving quality of electricity. This transmission line is of double circuit, and the total length is 45km. The construction of the line will ensure that power generated by Namphay Hydropower Station, which is jointly invested by NORINCO International and Electricité du Laos, will be stably delivered to the power grid of Laos and realize the expected investment returns. It can also provide stable and reliable energy supply to surrounding factories, mining enterprises and local residents. Besides, the construction of this transmission line also plays a positive role in improving and optimizing regional transmission network.
