Development of both the original Theun-Hinboun hydro plant and the Expansion Project has touched on the lives of thousands of people in Khammouane and Bolikhamxay provinces. THPC has brought electricity and improved infrastructure and social services to villages that were previously isolated for much of the year. In addition to general programs designed to share the benefits of the project with local people, the company's Social & Environmental Division teams also look to help project area residents on an individual basis when possible. Some of the stories of these people are recorded here.

THPC strives for transparency in its operations and makes as much documentation as possible available for public consultation.

The main resources available concern the various assessments and surveys carried out to assess environmental and social impacts, the plans set out to mitigate such impacts, and the results of the constant monitoring on THPC performance in these vital areas of the project. Documents are listed according to their date: the Planning page gives access to documents developed before or at the beginning of the Expansion Project construction, while the Implementation page lists reports on progress made during the construction and operation phases of the project.

News, reports and brochures on the project can be downloaded, along with various human interest features on people on the project area. THPC has in the past received letters from environmental advocacy groups alleging infringement of company obligations, and the company's responses to these letters are also published here.

If you cannot find the documents you are looking for, please contact THPC. Note that details of financial performance and contracts remain subject to disclosure agreements with project partners and are not released to the general public.
