Power sta­tion con­struc­tion gath­ers speed

The Pyongyang Times - - The Pyongyang Times - By Jong Hwa Sun PT

The project for the Paek­tu­san Songun Youth Power Sta­tion which is be­ing built in three tiers in the up­per reaches of the Sodu River, Paegam County, Ryang­gang Prov­ince, is an up­hill task that faces the worst nat­u­ral and ge­o­graph­i­cal con­di­tions in the his­tory of build­ing hy­dro­elec­tric power sta­tions in the coun­try.

Young builders, who vol­un­teered to the con­struc­tion site with a pride that they build a mon­u­ment of youth in the Paektu area, have pushed ahead with the con­struc­tion for years de­spite the bit­ing cold of north­ern area.

They al­ready in­au­gu­rated power sta­tion No 1 ear­lier than sched­ule and com­pleted the rock-filled dam of power sta­tion No 2 and wa­ter­way tun­nel of power sta­tion No 3.

Supreme leader Kim Jong Un’s April visit to the con­struc­tion site stim­u­lated the en­thu­si­asm of youth shock brigade mem­bers to round off the con­struc­tion of power sta­tions Nos 1 and 2 till the 70th an­niver­sary of the Party found­ing.

The army-peo­ple joint head­quar­ters con­trol ex­e­cu­tion of con­struc­tion scrupu­lously to ac­cel­er­ate all the projects si­mul­ta­ne­ously in­clud­ing the con­crete tamp­ing for the dam of power sta­tion No 1 and coat­ing of wa­ter­way tun­nel of power sta­tion No 2.

Thanks to the de­voted ef­forts of the builders, the over­all con­struc­tion speed has dou­bled over the past, with a re­sult that the looks of the con­struc­tion site change with each pass­ing day.

Es­pe­cially, con­crete tamp­ing of the dam of power sta­tion No 1 is pro­gress­ing at a fast pace.

Those from South Ham­gy­ong Prov­ince, to­gether with the builders of the Nam­gang Hy­dro­elec­tric Power Sta­tion Con­struc­tion Com­pany, over­ful­fil daily con­crete tamp­ing as­sign­ments by in­tro­duc­ing a con­struc­tion method for low­er­ing the in­side tem­per­a­ture of the con­creted dam.

Those of North Phy­on­gan and Ham­gy­ong prov­inces in charge of the con­struc­tion of power sta­tion No 2 in­tro­duced ad­vanced con­struc­tion meth­ods to speed up the coat­ing of wa­ter­way tun­nel and en­sure the qual­ity of con­struc­tion.

Mean­while, sol­dier builders push the con­struc­tion of gen­er­a­tor room for power sta­tion No 2, sluice way and dwelling houses for the res­i­dents in flooded ar­eas and con­crete tamp­ing of the bot­tom and wall of surge tank.
