After three years of construction and installation, both facilities have been put into operation and are connected to the grid, providing power supply of about 95 million kWh a year and contributing VND35 billion to the local budget per year, serving socio-economic development in Nghe An.

Additionally, during the implementation of the projects, the SCI has invested in building a 150 kVA transformer station and nearly 3km of power supply lines for 100 households in Tang Phan hamlet, Na Ngoi commune, as well as investing in lines and a transformer station for Huoi Thum hamlet.

The investment in the construction of the two plants has formed a 32 km long road which connects the National Highway No. 7 with local mountainous communes and provides telecommunications and information services for nearby areas.
