The Electricity of Vietnam (EVN) group aims to optimise their hydropower plants’ capacity by taking full advantage of September’s abundance of water resources during the main month of flooding.

According to the group, the country’s total electricity output reached 95.6 billion kWh during the first eight months of 2014, up by nearly 10 percent compared to last year.

EVN has instructed its subsidiaries to develop measures to combat floods and safely operate reservoirs with high water levels in order to cope with possible unusual weather events.

The group also intensified communication efforts to promote safety and conserve electricity during the rainy season.-VNA
