The Company has implemented mitigation measures during the design and construction phase of the project, the implementation phase and the final stage of the project, including the study of topography, erosion, surface water, hydrology, air quality, water quality, soil quality, biological resources, forest resources and wildlife sanctuaries, livelihoods and occupations of local communities, traditions, culture and religion, water supply systems, roads, transportation, public health, aesthetics and risks.
The project will reduce the use of electricity from gasoline and coal-fired power plants, which emit carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide or carbon dioxide as a source of greenhouse gases. The 230 KV high voltage transmission line from the transformer of the first, second and third power plants of Kamchay Hydropower Plant with a length of 11.05 km to Kampot substation will have additional power supply to Sihanoukville, Takeo and Phnom Penh to meet the needs of effective development for the country. In line with the poverty reduction policy of the Royal Government of Cambodia, this project will make people have access to cheap electricity in agriculture. In addition, people can have a better life when they have this energy for handicrafts and also attract large and small factories in the area. On the other hand, the project has direct payments to the national budget revenue through the payment of taxes.
