NNP1PC | The First Roller Compacted Concrete Placement at Main Dam

The NNP1 Project now begins the RCC placement of the main dam in order to store water for power generation. Once constructed, it will be the highest RCC dam to be built in Laos. The dam will be 167 metre in height and 530 metres in the crest length.

RCC stands for Roller Compacted Concrete. It is a concrete mix of cement and fly ash from Thailand, locally quarried aggregates and water.  The total volume of concrete to be placed at the main dam is around 2.3 million cubic metres.

Like any other dams, NNP1 dam is required to have sufficient stability against over-turning and sliding, and have water-tightness so the selection of good materials, optimal mixing and appropriate placing to the latest international best practices are the most important.
