The history and development
Lo River (Song Lo: 274 km long, with a basin area of 39,000 m2) is one of the largest rivers in the North of Vietnam, located in the mountainous province of Ha Giang.
For a long time, this place has been known as an iconic image of Ha Giang City, famous for its potential for power generation with six hydroelectric plants being developed and connected to the national grid.
The Song Lo 2 Hydropower Plant, owned by BB Power Holdings and related companies (100%), is located on National Highway 2 in Dao Duc Commune, Vi Xuyen District, Ha Giang Province, 15 kilometers from Ha Giang city. BB Power Holdings purchased the project in 2019, one year after it was officially launched.
Song Lo 2 (28 MW) covers a length of 12 km of riverbed and is typical of a small hydroelectric plant that utilizes the natural flow of the river due to its low head. Therefore, the designs are optimized, and the environmental impact is minimized.
The factory always promotes social and environmental friendliness in the project and surrounding areas. Despite the challenges left by the previous owners, BB Group strongly believes in the development potential of Song Lo 2 through the production improvement plan that has been implemented for 2022. The factory will also be enhanced in the coming years, adding to the beauty of the poetic Lo River and the new developments of Ha Giang City that are constantly advancing.
