Waterway tunnel extension reaches halfway

The extension of major waterway tunnel of the first-stage Tanchon Power Station project passed the 50 percent line.

Starting in May 2017, it is the largest hydropower station project ever initiated in the DPRK. The station will have a power generation capacity of hundreds of thousands of kilowatts, a hundreds-of-metre-high head and a waterway tunnel going hundreds of kilometres through steep northern mountains.
