Quang Tri (VNA) – The central province of Quang Tri has fulfilled its target of bringing electricity to all communes as the two last hamlets of Tria and Cat in Huong Son ward, Huong Hoa district have recently gained access to the national power grid.

The project was implemented in nine months with a total investment of approximate 14 billion VND (over 615,000 USD).

It included the construction of a 13 km medium-voltage line and more than 5 kilometres of low-voltage line as well as two transformer stations with capacity of 25KVA. 

The electricity sector and local authorities mobilised locals to facilitate the land clearance process while working units strived to finish the project before the Lunar New Year 2017.

The project is expected to boost local development and protect national sovereignty in mountainous areas while contributing to realising the target of building new-style rural area in a resolution issued by the provincial Party Committee.-VNA
