The Phalhyang Dam of the Orangchon Power Station was wonderfully completed.
The Dam in Orangchon area is a grand edifice, a product of self-reliance displayed by the builders who surmounted manifold difficulties and trials to implement the behests of President Kim Il Sung and Chairman Kim Jong Il and the policies of the Party.
Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un learned in field about the Orangchon Power Station when the construction was almost at a suspension and saw to it that revolutionary measures were taken to finish the construction as early as possible. He led the people and builders of North Hamgyong Province to perform miracles and feats while placing great trust in them.
The completion of the gigantic Phalhyang Dam opened up a bright prospect for expediting the completion of the Orangchon Power Station as a large-scale hydro-electric power generation base, and this enabled to take a giant advance in solving the tense electricity issue of the country and energizing the economy of North Hamgyong Province.
