The Nam Ngum 2 Hydroelectric Power Project is located in Lao PDR, approximately 35 km upstream of the existing Nam Ngum 1 dam. It is located on the Nam Ngum River, which is one of the major tributaries to the Mekong River.
The project, with an installed capacity of 615 MW is being built to produce energy for the Thai electricity grid and all the output will be sold to the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT).
Pöyry has been involved in the development of the project since 1994, starting with the feasibility study. In 2004, the Nam Ngum 2 Power Company Ltd. entrusted Pöyry as an independent engineer during project implementation.
